Certified IOT Practioner

What is the Internet of Things? It’s not just about connected consumer devices like wearables and smart thermostats. As IoT evolves into much larger-scale business applications in the world of healthcare, manufacturing, and nearly every other industry imaginable, the need for a general understanding of the technologies, tools, and methods that are part of IoT is greater than ever. 

Certified Internet of Things Practitioner (CIoTP) is a comprehensive certification designed to validate that individuals in a wide variety of job functions have a foundational knowledge of the important concepts and components that are part of an IoT ecosystem.

CIoTP is a vendor -neutral certification that validates a candidate can design, implement, operate and manage an IoT eco-system.

A CIoTP certification confirms a baseline knowledge for any IoT related employee and benefits your company's ability to ensure a safe IoT environment for consumer & employees.

CIoTP has been developed in compliance with ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024 standards.



In this course, you will learn how to apply Internet of Things technologies to solve real-world problems. You will learn:

  • Plan an IoT implementation.
  • Construct and program an IoT device.
  • Communicate with an IoT device using wired and wireless connections.
  • Process sensor input and control an actuator on an IoT device.
  • Manage security, privacy, and safety risks on IoT projects.
  • Manage an IoT prototyping and development project throughout the development lifecycle.




To ensure your success in this course, you should be an experienced computer user who is comfortable setting up and configuring computers and electronic devices. 


The Certified Internet of Things exam will certify that the successful candidate has the foundational knowledge of IoT concepts, technologies, and tools that will enable them to become a capable IoT practitioner in a wide variety of IoT-related job functions.

This 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 Internet of Things devices and related systems. The student is interested in learning more about embedded systems, microcontroller programming, IoT security, and the development life cycle for IoT projects.

While students will gain hands-on experience assembling a prototype IoT device and using software development tools, these activities are closely guided, so previous experience in electronics assembly and programming are not required. This course prepares students for taking the myLearningKey's Certified Internet of Things (IoT) Practitioner.
