OpenClassrooms Certification

2 hands-on projects

Agile methodology started in February 2001 when 17 software development experts pooled their knowledge and experience. Now used by many companies such as Google and Amazon, this methodology is essential in a project with evolving requirements and solutions. 

According to the needs of each project, team members are organized in an autonomous and effective way, reducing costs and increasing productivity. Each project is “chunked” into small parts that must be completed and delivered in a few weeks. The aim is to develop quality products and services that meet the needs of customers whose priorities are changing.

How Will I Learn at OpenClassrooms?

Our learning method is unique and revolves around two elements: professional projects and dedicated mentoring sessions.

Projects

At OpenClassrooms, learning is project-driven because that’s the fastest way to become proficient. Projects offer hands-on experience so you can hit the ground running when you start your new job.  

This path has 2 projects to complete, one at a time. First, you’ll receive a detailed brief with the context, customer requirements, and additional details. Then it’s up to you to make it real! To do this, you’ll have to be creative, coming up with innovative solutions to the questions at hand.

Mentorship

During your path, you will be assigned a mentor who will offer one-to-one support via weekly video conference sessions. This mentor will guide you through your projects, help define objectives, and coach you until you reach them. Our mentors are dedicated professionals who are experts in their field and have experience sharing their know-how with our students.
