Experience learning in a totally new way with ‘flipped’ training

This innovative course is a ‘flipped’ virtual training that combines self-paced learning with weekly live virtual classroom sessions led by an expert Drupal instructor.

Each week you will do weekly self-paced learning and project assignments when it is convenient for you, and attend a scheduled 90-minute instructor-led virtual class session. Each session is a workshop where students ask questions, test their skills in applying knowledge, and interact with one another in hands-on activities.

Learning materials are provided through a collaborative online environment which enables instructor-to-student and peer-to-peer discussions throughout the week.

This is a project-based course and each student must build their own Drupal 8 site. After purchase you will be given the class syllabus which details the weekly material.

"The targeted training materials and exercises focused my efforts, and the interaction with peers in the class accelerated my learning." - Jeramy from Ithaca New York

"…great way for me to learn at a flexible pace while not interrupting with my other day-to-day responsibilities." - Deborah from California

Entrance requirements

This course is not suitable for Drupal beginners. In general, you should have medium to high proficiency with Drupal 7, some familiarity with Drupal 8, or both to enroll in this course. To ensure your success, we are requiring one of the following as a prerequisite.

  • You must have an Acquia Drupal Certification already (D7 or D8) OR
  • You have a demonstrable history of at least 6 months of Drupal experience.
  • Extensive experience with a similar content management system.

N.B. While one of the course’s main objectives is to prepare you to take the Acquia Certified Developer - D8 exam, developers already holding that credential may still wish to take the course to solidify their D8 knowledge and project-building experience.
