CAMPBELL, Calif.--Mirantis, freeing developers to create their most valuable code, today announced Mirantis Academy, a training program for cloud-native computing for teams seeking to uplevel essential Docker, Kubernetes, and OpenStack skills.

The 30-day program offers custom-curated courses, personalized learning paths, and a unique blend of instructor guidance and on-demand content that provides a flexible and effective approach to skill development.

"The launch of Mirantis Academy addresses the significant skills shortage in cloud computing technologies,” said Allen Oster, manager of curriculum development, Mirantis. “This program represents a significant milestone in the learning experience that creates a personalized journey for each participant, ensuring they gain the confidence and expertise required in their roles.”

Mirantis Academy delivers a personalized learning experience tailored to each team member's specific needs. It offers three primary learning tracks, each aligning with an industry-recognized certification exam: Kubernetes Operations; Docker Containerization Essentials; and OpenStack Operations. Instructors collaborate with participants to curate courses aligned with their learning objectives and current level of cloud expertise.

The program's extended 30-day duration allows for a more comfortable learning pace, so participants can integrate new skills into their team's work routine. The structured weekly learning approach includes interactive sessions with dedicated instructors, e-learning modules, weekly assignments, and hands-on labs to foster an effective, well-organized learning experience for working professionals with clear goals.

Beyond the initial 30 days, participants enjoy 365 days of access to course materials, including recorded lectures. This ensures continuous learning, allowing individuals to revisit content whenever needed. Mirantis Academy guarantees that no team member is left behind, fostering a commitment to the successful progression of every participant.

Also, Mirantis Academy provides continuous support through a dedicated Slack channel, ensuring learners have instant connectivity for assistance or guidance. Instructors, with their wealth of experience, offer "office hours" for deeper exploration of topics, answering questions, and demonstrating advanced skills. Practical application is emphasized, with weekly lab challenges providing hands-on experience, and solidifying newly acquired skills under the mentorship of instructors.
