Engaging E-learning

Our self-paced courses include videos, demos and the latest industry case studies. Hands-on labs, hosted on CENGN’s unique cloud platform, allow you to hone your skills and learn best practices. And our “error-based learning” injects common issues into labs and guides you through the troubleshooting process, because in real life things go wrong.

What our learners are saying

"This online course (Docker + Kubernetes Basics) was really helpful as it was well planned and carefully laid out. Even though I was new to this topic, it was really easy to follow and gave a good foundation on Docker and Kubernetes. The lab practices gave a better understanding of the course material and the support given by the staff throughout, including the checkpoint, is really appreciable. Being self-paced made it a lot easier for me to adjust to my schedule. Overall, I am happy that I chose to do this course."
