2016 was a year that I would call “The Good, the Sad, and the Ugly.” The sad and the ugly, I won’t get into, but the good was great, especially here at Level. We launched in Boston, Seattle, Silicon Valley and Charlotte; we graduated over 100 students and offered AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate certification training on our Seattle campus.
2017 marks a new year and with this new year comes new beginnings. Many of which we are excited to share! So without further ado, here is a sneak peak of some of what we have on deck in 2017.
Our inaugural Level Core class launches later this month in Toronto. In a recent Bostinno article, our Founder Nick Ducoff described the expansion as a way of taking a “global and local” approach, which involves trying to “deeply understand what’s going on in Toronto as well as wider tech trends.” If you’re in Toronto and want to join the excitement, you can sign up here.
AWS Certified Solutions Architect Training is Expanding
Last fall, we launched AWS: Foundations in Cloud Computing in Amazon’s stomping ground of Seattle, Washinton. The course was created to prepare students for the AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate exam. With a growing need for AWS Certifications, we decided to expand to another Amazon office location, Boston, Massachusetts. Our first cohort starts in Boston on February 13th. Let us know if you want to be a part of it.
IoT Launches in Silicon Valley
The Internet of Things industry is the next wave of Internet technologies and expected to create hundreds of thousands of well-paying professional jobs. We want to prepare professionals for this new and exciting industry, so we partnered with Cisco to bring the Internet of Things Bootcamp. This new bootcamp is being offered as a 15 week, hybrid course that kicks off February 13th. We are currently accepting applications.
Level is now transferable credit into Northeastern University
We are very excited to announce that Level courses are now stackable with Northeastern University’s College of Professional Studies. Level Core students who score and 85 or higher are now eligible to transfer their Level Certificate into Northeastern’s Master of Professional Studies in Analytics program. Level students who score under 85 are still entitled to the Master’s program and will receive the University’s Double Husky Scholarships; granted students meet the University requirements.
We have much more in store for 2017…stay tuned!
