On behalf of the California Institute of Technology I would like to commend the students for their personal commitment and like Rick mentioned,  it is your passion, learning and the support from your families that has helped your get through this program. Embarking on a nearly year-long program to learn new skills and unfamiliar areas is challenging but also incredibly rewarding and we are glad that you are a part of the same, with us. Over the years it has been amazing to watch this program grow and I would like to say that you are a part of an amazing community. With the Simplilearn programs we have had representation from over 60 countries where many of you come from the US, India, Africa and Europe and other places where we don’t usually do programs but Simplilearn has helped us create that reach. I would like to welcome you to the community and wish you the best of luck in your software development and engineering careers. We are glad that you are with us.”

Ramchander Racharla, one of the learners shared, “My PGP journey in Cloud Computing through Caltech and Simplilearn has been pleasant and fruitful. The course has not only given me knowledge in cloud computing but made me eligible to clear many interviews, answer questions confidently and holistically. I would like to thank Caltech management and Simplilearn staff, instructors for giving me this platform to learn new technology. I would like to  specially thank Ms Shruti Sinha for laying a strong foundation in Azure Cloud”

Suresh Krishnan, another learner said, My learning journey started with the course aligning very well with my day to day job, which fulfilled my aspiration to gain critical skills in Cloud Platform Engineering, especially the weekend class helped me to balance out my work week, the cohort session covering AWS, Azure, and GCP(through the elective option) helped gain the practical aspects and, I could relate and apply quickly to my work, as a Staff Engineer working for Shipt, it benefitted me the most and helped progress in my career.

This course helped my contribution scope beyond my area of expertise and I was able to participate and fulfill my corporate goal this year to support applications in multiple cloud provider platforms. I would like to thank all the teaching staff and support staff during this journey, but a key callout I would like to make here at this moment, for Mr.Pravin who took the Azure course, I liked the way he devised the course, blending theory and practice and his dedication to teach the students, despite getting affected with Covid during the Cohort.”

This is the second virtual graduation ceremony completed with Caltech CTME. With other courses running in parallel, 500+ learners will be graduating from Simplilearn in the coming months.
