Certified Internet of Things Practitioner (CIoTP™): Exam ITP-110( Intermediate)

  • Course level: Intermediate


Certified Internet of Things Practitioner ( Intermediate)

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises a wide range of benefits for industry, energy and utility companies,
municipalities, healthcare, and consumers. Data can be collected in extraordinary volume and detail
regarding almost anything worth measuring, such as public health and safety, the environment, industrial
and agricultural production, energy, and utilities. New data analysis tools have been optimized for the
massive amounts of data that IoT produces, enabling well-informed decisions to be made quickly.
But putting IoT systems into place can be a complicated proposition, and fraught with hazards. Solutions
may involve devices and technologies from many different vendors, requiring a good understanding of
software and hardware and strategies to integrate them, as well as the risks associated with security,
privacy, and the safety of those whose working and living environments are managed by these systems.
IT professionals often have little or no experience working with embedded systems, sensor networks,
actuators, real-time systems, and other components that are common to IoT, so this course provides a
foundation for understanding how these components work with other systems that IT professionals typically
have more experience working with—such as networks, cloud computing, and applications running on
servers, desktop computers, and mobile devices.
In this course, students will learn general strategies for planning, designing, developing, implementing, and
maintaining an IoT system through various case studies and by assembling and configuring an IoT device to
work in a sensor network. Students will create an IoT device based on an ESP8266 microcontroller,
implementing various common IoT features, such as analog and digital sensors, a web-based interface,
MQTT messaging, and data encryption.

Benefits of the course

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

Targeted Audience

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 CertNexus Certified Internet of
Things (IoT) Practitioner (Exam ITP-110)
