Program Overview

LimeAcademy’s Training Program is designed to mimic the daily work routine of a blockchain developer by tasking you to work on a large hands-on project for the entire duration of the training season.

The main objective is to exit the program not only with knowledge, but also with practical experience in building a fully-functioning decentralized application on an Ethereum testnet.

After successful graduation you receive an NFT Certificate that is minted on a blockchain network to forever prove your acquired expertise. You can also get career opportunities and if you successfully land a job with one of our partners you will get 100% refund of the tuition fee.

Training Format

You’ll get access to all the knowledge resources you’ll need to tackle your project assignment successfully.

The training content consists mainly of reading materials, with relevant visual content like videos and tutorials sprinkled throughout. On top of that, you will have a personal mentor to answer your questions. It is important to note that your personal mentor is not there to lecture you, but to guide and support you in your training journey. Thus a learning attitude is a must if you are to join the training. You are the driver of your own success. 

Apart from the weekly meetings with your mentor, there are also Group Weekly Meetups with all trainees and several mentors where you can discuss different cases you came across when reading the materials or building your dApp.

The communication is async, which means that you can ask your questions anytime in a dedicated Slack channel and a mentor will get back to you as soon as possible. 

Plan ahead to invest at least 10 hours a week. This will ensure that you have enough time to read the necessary materials and be on top of your project.

You will get support for the development of your project also with project management – by having weekly milestones and S.M.A.R.T. goals.
