Telerik Academy is creating a society of life-long learners. It teaches a mindset that is not only of great help when solving complex problems, but also serves as a wonderful motivator to constantly be hunting for and adopting new skills and information.

(Class of 2017)

There is no other tech-ed organization in Bulgaria like Telerik Academy. These are not only my words. I know a lot of expats who came back to Bulgaria and people who quit their jobs or put their university studies on hold to be able to fully dedicate themselves to the Academy.

(Class of 2017)

Telerik Academy changed my life. At the age of 20, I was already independent and working my dream job! Without the knowledge and experience I gained at Telerik Academy, I wouldn’t have had such a flying start.

After 10+ years of scrutinizing and perfecting its craft it’s no wonder Telerik Academy is the leader in technical education. We are honored to have 15 alumni at Tick42 who are continuously getting unsolicited praise from our clients, and we’ll most definitely continue partnering closely with Telerik Academy.
