If you are interested in an Instructor-Led course, please contact us to arrange a booking.
Note: Instructor-Led courses are currently only available to corporate groups of 5-12 people. We currently do not offer Instructor-Led courses to individuals.
I have taken similar courses on another platform, are the certificates and badges transferrable to Lightbend Academy?
The Lightbend Academy courses have their own grades, badges, and certificates and are non-transferrable.
Once I have registered, which course should I start with?
If you are unsure which course to start with, we recommend you start with our Getting Started course which will help to guide you on your journey.
Where can I find my Lightbend commercial credentials?
You can access your commercial credentials by going to: https://www.lightbend.com/account/lightbend-platform/credentials.
Please ensure you read the instructions in detail to ensure your project is correctly configured.
Where can I download the slides?
At this time we do not offer a way to download the slides.
Can I retake a course to improve my grade and receive a course certificate or badge?
We currently only allow a single attempt at each course. However, we offer retries on many questions, and long time limits. Our courses are intended to be forgiving.
Please do your best on each course to ensure you can receive your course certificate and badge as grades are final.
Why does my dashboard indicate progress in some courses but not in others?
The dashboard shows progress exclusively for courses that include quizzes, exams and certificates. Progress is not tracked for courses that do not include quizzes, exams and certificates, therefore even though you may have completed the course, the dashboard will still indicate that the course can be resumed.
