NOTE: To perform the course activities, students will need to provide credit card information to create some cloud accounts. Training organizations will need to communicate this requirement appropriately to students if they will be expected to provide their own cards. Providers may consider alternate strategies, such as supplying a prepaid card number to students during class that they can use to create the temporary accounts. Charges, if any, to these cards will be minimal, and where possible the activities suggest alternate strategies in cases where minor charges might be accrued.
