Akamai University courses offer in-depth training on the basics: how to implement, configure, troubleshoot, report, and manage our solutions. All of our courses include real-time live demonstrations, hands-on exercises, an average class size of less than 25, and at least two instructors from Akamai’s professional services and technical consulting teams.

Each Akamai University course includes two days of training, with the exception of Akamai Advanced Bot Manager, which includes one day of training. After taking an Akamai University class, you will be invited to complete a quiz on the materials you just learned. Upon passing the quiz, you will automatically be issued an e-certificate and a badge — a web-enabled token containing metadata with skills tags and accomplishments that can be verified in real time.
