Become a Certified Internet of Things Practitioner

A valuable credential for IoT jobs in today’s IT market

June 15, 2020

Become a Certified Internet of Things Practitioner
With demand for IoT technology at an all-time high, the need for IT professionals with IoT expertise and specialized skills is growing exponentially.
According to an article by IT Pro Today, over 200,000 IoT jobs are expected to be added through 2022, but the demand far exceeds the current pool of qualified candidates.
A great way for you to distinguish yourself from other resellers—and position yourself as an IoT expert—is with IoT certification, and Ingram Micro offers IoT training online to help you become a Certified Internet of Things Practitioner (CIoTP).
IoT implementation can be complicated
Solutions often involve devices and technologies from many different vendors, requiring a good understanding of software and hardware and the strategies to integrate them properly. And there are added security and privacy risks as well—the more IoT devices that are added to a network, the more entry points for possible cyberattacks. IoT certification gives you the expertise and skills to address these complexities and “talk the talk” surrounding IoT technology.
The Certified Internet of Things Practitioner (CIoTP) program
Ingram Micro’s CIoTP 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 IoT devices and related systems. Ideal candidates have an interest in learning more about embedded systems, microcontroller programming, IoT security and the development life cycle of IoT projects.

The CIoTP course offers participants valuable hands-on experience and covers a variety of topics including:

  • Identifying, constructing and programming an IoT device
  • Communicating with wired and wireless IoT devices
  • Processing sensor inputs and output devices
  • Managing security and privacy risks on IoT projects
  • Planning an IoT project
CIoTP training provides a solid foundation in IoT implementation and can be a valuable credential to have in today’s highly competitive IT market.
