Today, we are excited to welcome new industry partner Tencent Cloud to the Coursera partner community. As one of the world’s leading cloud providers, Tencent Cloud brings deep technical expertise to the Coursera learner platform. Over the coming months, the company will roll out a series of courses designed to help learners develop in-demand cloud skills, starting with the beginner-level Tencent Cloud Practitioner course available today.

Demand for cloud talent is projected to grow as organizations increasingly rely on cloud-driven technologies. Our new partnership aims to equip learners for these emerging roles, drawing from Tencent Cloud’s work developing cloud solutions for a wide range of sectors. The company has a notable presence globally, with a growing infrastructure network that now spans across 27 regions.

The new Tencent Cloud Practitioner course is designed for learners who want to kickstart their cloud career and familiarize themselves with the Tencent Cloud suite. The beginner-level course does not have any prerequisites and takes about eight hours to complete. It covers the different features, advantages, use cases, and billing methods of several core Tencent Cloud products. Learners will also explore the cloud basics needed to take the Tencent Cloud Practitioner exam. For $49, learners can access the full course experience, including video lectures, assignments, and quizzes, and receive a certificate upon completion to display on LinkedIn or share with an employer.

“As a leading cloud services provider in the world, we are committed to nurturing more talents and professionals in the cloud computing field by equipping them with the right skill sets and cloud foundation knowledge,” said Poshu Yeung, Senior Vice President of Tencent Cloud International. “We are delighted to collaborate with Coursera on this educational initiative, which will truly benefit our existing customers, partners as well as all industry practitioners.”
