Frequently asked questions

What lab environments do you offer?

We offer coding labs that are a place to practise and assess a student’s programming skills, where they complete coding exercises and challenges to showcase their proficiency in programming languages, frameworks, and libraries.

Then we have cloud labs that are a place to practise and assess a student’s cloud technology-related skills hosted in live cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services, (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. They put learners in real-world scenarios to follow guided exercises and solve challenges in a cloud environment.

Lastly, we offer hybrid code and cloud labs that allow learners to learn in coding and cloud environments simultaneously for practical situations.

Can I customise labs and applied scenarios?

Yes! We are able to offer customised labs, tabletop scenarios, and applied workshops as a service. Plus, organisations that subscribe to our self-paced platform, Cloud Academy, may build their own labs and/or clone and customise labs with our lab maker feature. You can create simple cloud labs and sandboxes. Cloud Academy labs also offer the ability to provide customised labs as a service.

Do you offer applied and collaborative workshops?

Yes! We provide an unrivalled array of ready-made, customisable, and fully bespoke workshops. This includes SME-led sessions in which staff engage on a specific cloud, coding, or tech hands-on lab with a narrative that is specific to your organisation's use case. Other examples include leadership workshops focused on activities and impact, or bespoke bootcamp-style projects to lock in learning.
