CNM Cloud (hereinafter, the Cloud) is the information technology that powers CNM Cyber.


Support for workforce

The Cloud is designed to support people who:
  1. Haven't identified their vocations and/or profession yet. For these people, the Cloud can be helpful as a tool for organizing review seminars, practices and studies for them;
  2. Have identified their vocation and profession, but lack of employable credentials. For these people, the Cloud can be helpful as a tool for training, on-the-job training or certification of skills;
  3. Have identified their vocation and profession, as well as possessed all employable credentials, and are looking for a specific job. For these people, the Cloud can be helpful as a tool for job search skills building, market information, contacts, and marketing channels.

Secondary objectives

In addition, the Cloud can be useful:
  • Those graduates who decide to organize or promote their own enterprises,
  • Those enterprises that source, selects, hires, onboards, and/or develops their workforce using the Cloud.

Services (CNM Cyber) and apps

The Cloud currently hosts services, which are collectively known as CNM Cyber, every of which is supported by one CNM app.
