Access your tools

Here’s a list of tools you’ll be using and will need access to throughout your course. Make sure you’re familiar with how to use them (most offer demos and FAQs).

Class dashboard

You’ll be able to access all your weekly session notes, handouts, and worksheets on your very own dashboard. Keep an eye out for your signup link.

Zoom: our video chat tool

Before your first week of classes, you’ll receive a calendar invite to download an applet from Zoom, the video tool we’ll be using for our face to face chats. Please make sure you download it before class starts, so you’re ready to meet your trainer and fellow students. We’ll start right away.

Here’s a direct link to download the applet if you prefer: Zoom applet

Slack

We’ll be using Slack to manage our class and alumni chats, group questions, and weekly assignments and challenges. Keep an eye out for an invite in your inbox.

Notion

We’ll use Notion for tracking your course progress, submitting homework, and completing exercises.

Mural

Mural is a wonderful collaborative white-board application that we’ll use for several exercises.

TeamGantt

We use TeamGantt for any gantt-related modules and exercises.

Materials you’ll need

Here’s what you need to take this program:

  • Internet speed of at least 25 Mbps (check here: fast.com)
  • Laptop or computer with keyboard and mouse
  • Google account (to access documents, email, spreadsheets, calendars, and other assets)
  • Web camera (built-in works)
  • Headphones (to minimize ambient noise/feedback)
  • Plenty of snacks to keep you in fine form

In most cases, your organization will provide you with the equipment, desk, and meeting space you need as a full-time employee. An extra screen is a nice to have (to view your high-level project data), but not required.

Your schedule

You can find your class schedule and sessions on your student dashboard and they will be announced in your team Slack channel. Please note that training sessions may be subject to change, but your trainers will always do their best to notify you of changes in advance. If you cannot make it to class, please notify your trainer and your fellow apprentices as soon as possible (since you’ll be working on group assignments). There will be video recordings of each in-class session available to apprentices if you miss anything.

Curriculum

  • One day a week of classes (required; 3 hours)
  • One day a week for lab hours with Slack support from your trainer and peers (required for full Apprenticeships but not short courses; 2 hours)
  • Spend your remaining time applying your learning or picking up new projects in your organization

Important: carve out time for your learning and stick to your learning schedule—since project work tends to fight for priority and professional development often gets deprioritized as an act of self-sacrifice, you will have to be mindful of prioritizing your training while balancing any real-time projects. Your employer can only gain the full value of this program when you are successfully absorbing the program and applying your learning.

Get a head start

If you’d like to get a head start on your learning, set up your RSS feed so you can do some regular reading. We recommend Feedly as it’s free and quick to set up, but you can use any RSS or ‘read later’ app you like.

For inspiration, here is a list to get you started.
