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.
Ivan Rusev

We partner with Telerik Academy because we know their graduates have gone through an extremely demanding program - with high training standards and practice - and have proven themselves to be true technology ninjas.

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.
