Sponsored by Businesswire

Skylines Academy has hit a major milestone in February 2020 and now has more than 100,000 students from 152 countries across the world.

“We love seeing this growth and hitting 100,000 students is huge, but what has been the most rewarding part of this journey is seeing students excel,” says Nick Colyer, Instructor & Co-Founder at Skylines Academy, “we receive messages every day about students passing exams, taking new cloud jobs, and accelerating their skills.”

Since the release of the first Skylines Academy course, the now-retired Microsoft Azure 70-533 Certification, in April 2018, Skylines Academy has created 16 new cloud technology courses, as well as practice questions, lab guides, study guides, and other study material. Skylines Academy also has an affordable annual and monthly membership package, which includes access to all content and material.

Alongside courses and study material, the Skylines Academy team has focused on building a strong community and offering free content to help students succeed:

  • The Facebook Azure Study Group has over 5k students who work together daily, share successes, and troubleshoot failures
  • The YouTube page offers free lectures and demos
  • And the blog goes in depth on many cloud topics to help students along their learning journey

“All of the content we’ve created has come from over 15 authors and collaborators who have been instrumental to Skylines Academy’s success. This group has been in the shoes of many of our students and is so passionate about teaching people how to obtain new cloud skills based on experience,” adds Brette Bossick, COO & Co-Founder.

Skylines Academy gives people the depth of knowledge they need to get cloud certifications and obtain skills in Azure, Microsoft 365 (M365), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and HashiCorp technologies. Skylines Academy continues to add new content each month and has plans to release more Azure, M365, GCP, and HashiCorp courses, as well as adding Dynamics 365 and more!
