I have the opportunity like i previously stated to choose between two packages
Cloud specialist and Security specialist.
Cloud specialist however includes courses such as Vm ware , CCNP and Citrix....
While Security specialist includes courses like CCNP, Cisco ASA Firewall, PRINCE 2(ITIL) and Checkpoint firewall.
So guys which do you think would be much needed and would give me more job opportunities between now and the next one decade.
Please i need your advice

Neither will. There is no way whatsoever that anyone can predict which field will be hotter or more in demand, or which skill set will pay more, or which software will remain robust and which will fall out of favor.

That having been said, the general advice I will give to anyone in your position is threefold:
  1. Take the courses that will put you into the smallest amount of educational debt (no debt is best). Debt is tough to get past and minimizing it is one of the best ways you can help your future economic self. Making more money today will only go so far if you are carrying crippling debt.
  2. Go with whatever either makes you happier now or you at least feel will make you happier later. Often that means opportunities for growth, security, and position, or opportunities to either stay or relocate as you prefer. We spend 1/3 or more of our lives at work. If you hate it, that will negatively impact the non-work aspects of your life. And,
  3. If you need a tiebreaker, go with whatever can make you the most money now. Like I said, tomorrow cannot be predicted. But if you go with a job where you start off making 20% more, even if you screw up royally, if you are not fired, you will still be ahead of the game with the other job, as 20% raises are pretty uncommon these days. But use this as a last resort, because a lot of good performances in a lower-paying gig will eventually start to surpass a lot of bad performances in a higher-paying one.
