Kentico training in 2015

See what changes we’re making in Kentico training in 2015.
Hi everyone! As the year 2014 is slowly coming to an end, I’d like to briefly share some news from the Kentico training program. The most important changes happened in the existing courses. We added and removed some topics from the Content administrator and Online marketing classes, changed the timing of the classes so that they’re not so tiring for students, and we’re adding a new developer course.

Content Administrator Essentials

We have removed some advanced topics that were aimed at developers rather than business users and we changed the timing and structure. The course is still two days long, but it takes only 6 hours each day. The new price for this course is $1250 for 10 training attendees.

Online Marketing Essentials (formerly EMS Essentials)

With online marketing activities on the web getting more and more important in the digital world, we feel that marketers using Kentico need to be properly trained. For this reason, we added more topics and extended the course from a single day to two days, each taking 6 hours. The new price is $1250 for 10 training attendees.

Developer Essentials

The developer training does not change. This is still a three-day (24 hour) course, which guides you through the development of a website using the Portal engine. The price also stays the same at $2400 for 10 training attendees.

Advanced Developer

We know that Kentico developers crave more knowledge of the cool development, customization, and integration options that Kentico provides. The new 8-hour developer class will teach you how to use the Kentico API, write advanced transformations, extend the system using event handlers, and leverage the power of Kentico’s macro language.
The training will take two days, four hours each day. The first class will be held on January 28th and 29th, each day from 8 a.m. to 12 a.m. Eastern time (1 p.m. to 5 p.m. British time).
This training class is the first part of two, the second part coming later in Q1. The second part will introduce other customization and integration options and take a look at debugging and optimizing your websites.
We strongly recommend developers take the Developer Essentials class before attending the Advanced Developer class.

Further plans

Other plans for 2015 include creation of smaller e-learning courses, which developers and marketers will be able to study at their own pace, at any time. We also plan to revamp the developer certification exam to reflect the most current best practices for Kentico development.
Stay tuned for more information, which we’ll release regularly during the next year.

Finally, I’d like to wish you a pleasant holiday season and nothing but success in the upcoming year!

Hi All,
thank you for your comments!

Shannon, you are 100% right that video training and tutorials are trending. They allow students to learn at their own pace, as well as save time for the particular training department. On the other hand, video training removes the ability to get your questions answered in real time while the content in question is being discussed. We already published a couple of How to videos and we plan on continuing those efforts. Also, in 2015, we will focus on creating e-learning content, which definitely will include video. Stay tuned :)

Dave, the price is $800 per 10 people from one company. I'll add the information to the article, as well as the links that Jakob suggested.

Jakob, thanks for the suggestion.

I wish you a great start to the new year.

What is the price of the Advanced Developer course?

With Kentico 8 out this might be a great time for the MVPs or Kentico to create a video training series. The days of instructor lead training are going and video training is where it is at. You can reach more people and you guys get paid for each video watched. Plus Kentico gets more exposure.
