Telerik Academy is a great starting point for anyone who wants to jumpstart a career in the IT industry. It provided me with the underlying knowledge and practical experience needed to join the sector.
Kalin Kostov
Software Developer
(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.
Alexander Popov

Some of my best junior software engineers at Uber come from Telerik Academy. It is always a pleasure to work with their alumni!
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.
Kiril Peyanski
Software Engineer

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.
Svetoslav Torbov
Head of Development

Telerik Academy has become a valuable partner for us thanks to its years of experience in training IT talent in Bulgaria. Through our collaboration we connect with students who have in-depth knowledge, high potential, and motivation for building a career in the IT industry.

    No problem! We record every live session with our trainers and speakers and make the recordings available for you to replay at your convenience.
    Will I receive a certificate upon completion of a Sprint?
