How do I prepare for the bootcamp?

Once you are registered for the bootcamp, you are required to complete about 10 hours of pre-bootcamp coursework in the learning portal. It’s good to run through the material at least once so you can get a feel for how prepared you will be.

Please also be sure to take your pre-bootcamp survey, and complete your pre-bootcamp checklist! Make sure you have all of the required software you need to install and bring to the training.

If you haven’t already done it, please create your learning portal account first. Once you registered for the course, you will receive an email with steps to create your learning portal account which must then be activated. Please check your spam or junk folder if you cannot locate your activation emails.

Once your learning portal is activated, you should enroll yourself in all the courses, there are a total of 14 courses. Once you have access you can start exploring any of these courses.

Your learning portal packs in a lot of content. However, we don’t want to overwhelm you with all the content at once. During the Pre-Bootcamp phase, we want you to focus on your bootcamp preparation. Accordingly, your access is limited to only some of the content. The content that you are not able to see and/or access has been deliberately restricted. The “Bootcamp Repository” is a content restricted for the Pre-Bootcamp phase. However, all the content will be made available to you on the last Wednesday before your bootcamp starts.
