The lnternet of Things (loT) will initiate the most significant skills shortage across lT, manufacturing, data analysis and security in the coming years. One million jobs in loT are expected to be added through 2020. Certified lnternet of Things Practitioner (CloTP) provides a vendor neutral foundation to build the skills required for these jobs and new job functions related to loT. CloTP and the achievement of a passing score on the loTP-110 exam will validate your ability to design, implement, operate, and/or manage an loT Eco-system at a foundational level. The lnternet of Things promises a wide range of benefits for industry, energy, and utility companies, municipalities, healthcare, and consumers.

During this 3-day instructor-led course, participants will learn general strategies for planning, designing, developing, implementing, and maintaining an loT system through various case studies, and by assembling and using their own loT device. To get hands on experience, participants will build an loT device by programming a micro-controller, implementing various common loT features such as sensors, actuators, a web-based interface, MQTT messaging, and data encryption.

Students will be provided an IoT device kit, textbook, and exam voucher as part of their enrollment fee. When registering for a virtual class please be sure to include an accurate physical mailing address to ensure you receive your class materials.

If attending the LIVE IN THE CLASSROOM training, your materials will be distributed the first morning of class. Register early for a discount!

Student Profile

This course is designed for lT professionals with baseline skills in computer hardware, software support, and development who want to learn how to design, develop, implement, operate, and manage loT devices and related systems. The participant is interested in learning more about embedded systems, micro-controller programming, loT security, and the development life cycle for loT projects. While participants will gain hands-on experience constructing electronic components on a prototyping breadboard, and using software development tools, these activities are closely guided, so previous experience in electronics assembly and programming are not required.



Students planning to attend this course should have basic hardware/software troubleshooting experience. For example when downloading and installing the Software Development Kit, students must be able to troubleshoot basic installation or access issues that may arise with their own PC.  Also students attending this course must have  Administrative rights to their PC operating system, and must be familiar with working with USB devices.
