The biggest challenge with IoT: most organizations are not ready. In a recent survey of organizations in which IoT technology could be applied, 82% of respondents said that they would adopt some form of IoT within the next two years. And yet, 47% of those same respondents said they lack the skills needed to benefit from a deployment truly. Even as IoT applications make their way into almost every industry, qualified IT professionals with the necessary skills to design, implement, operate, and manage IoT ecosystems are in dangerously short supply.
This course is designed for IT professionals with baseline skills in computer hardware, software support, and development who want to learn how to design, develop, implement, operate, and manage Internet of Things devices and related systems. It is for those interested in learning more about embedded systems, microcontroller programming, IoT security, and the development life cycle for IoT projects. While students will gain hands-on experience assembling a prototype IoT device and using software development tools, these activities are closely guided, so previous experience in electronics assembly and programming are not required. This course prepares students for taking the 3 modules of training
M1. Certified Internet of Things (IoT) Practitioner. M2. Certified Internet of Things Security Practitioner (CIoTSP) v1.0 M3. Internet of Things for Connected Product Professionals (IoTPro).
The Internet of Things (IoT) is pervasive and it’s not just about connected home devices or smartwatches anymore. It’s being applied in myriad ways in all different industries – whether it is in the predictive maintenance of a fleet of long-haul trucks, proximity-based marketing to retail customers, or real-time route optimization for first responder vehicles. According to Statista, 2021 will see 10.07 billion IoT-connected devices worldwide. How many things are predicted to be interconnected on the internet by 2030? It’s estimated that the number of active IoT devices will surpass 25.4 billion in 2030. The biggest challenge with IoT: most organizations are not ready. In a recent survey of organizations in which IoT technology could be applied, 82% of respondents said that they will adopt some form of IoT within the next five years. And yet, 47% of those same respondents said they are lacking the skills needed to truly benefit from a deployment. Even as IoT applications make their way into almost every industry, qualified IT professionals with the skills needed to design, implement, operate, and manage IoT ecosystems are in dangerously short supply.
Certifications related to new or emerging technologies like IoT are a critical factor in closing that skills gap by creating a professional workforce that is ready to support them. A technology certification has been designed to evaluate a very specific set of knowledge, skills, and abilities that will be required of an individual in a specific job function or performing specific tasks related to that technology. Typically, it requires ongoing continuing education or recertification to ensure continued competence in those subject areas, which are constantly evolving as the technology matures.
Internet of Things (IoT) Certification track covers Certified Internet of Things Practitioner (CIoTP), Certified Internet of Things Security Practitioner (CIoTSP) v1.0 and Internet of Things for Connected Product Professionals (IoTPro) modules.
