FAQ

I'm a complete beginner and have zero management experience, is this course suitable for me?
Absolutely, this course is tailored for tech beginners with no prior experience. To start your journey, you'll need the proficiency of a competent PC user, a clear understanding of the profession that interests you, and most importantly, a strong drive to learn and excel in the tech field. Your dedication during your studies will be crucial, ensuring that you engage in learning and completing assigned tasks.
Will I have a portfolio after the course?
At the end of the course, you will defend a graduation project that you can include in your portfolio to show the future employer. This is a project with real tasks that you solve during training. The majority of all homework will relate to your work on the project for your portfolio and real-world case studies from a project manager's job. This means that theoretical learning is seamlessly integrated with the practical experience of working on a personal project, which will involve creating documentation such as project charters, WBSs, roadmaps, budgets, risk registers, backlogs in Jira with user stories, and more. The remaining 20% is comprised of various Scrum or Kanban knowledge games, developing a LinkedIn profile, writing CVs and cover letters.

Homework assignments are multilevel, covering both the fundamentals required for a junior position and in-depth knowledge for those who want to fully grasp various aspects of a project manager's responsibilities.

Also, your teacher will be happy to advise you which of the practical or homework assignments can be included in the portfolio.
Do you help with employment?
We do not guarantee 100% employment, but we do everything we can to increase your chances of getting a job. We provide career counseling, where you will learn how to create an effective CV, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile. A professional recruiter will review your work and provide feedback on how to improve it. Moreover, our curriculum is developed by senior authors who also teach and see in practice what junior specialists need to get a job.

Learn more about what we do to make sure your education ends with a job offer on our website.
Where can I find testimonials about the Academy?
Explore our graduates' reviews on popular feedback platforms like Course Report and Trustpilot. Also, find out more about their experience on our website.
How do you keep your courses relevant?
To ensure our courses remain up-to-date and relevant to the ever-evolving tech industry, we update our curriculum on a regular basis.We also employ industry experts as instructors, ensuring that our students receive the latest insights and tools from professionals who are actively shaping the tech landscape. In addition to our internal updates, we also actively seek feedback from our students and teachers.
Will I receive a certificate of completion?
Yes, your digital certificate will look like this. Our graduates add certificates to LinkedIn and other social networks to verify their skills. But most importantly, you will gain practical knowledge directly from a middle+ level specialist, create a portfolio, improve your soft skills by working side by side with other students, and prepare your CV, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile for job search in a new field.
