Boost your career

Hundreds of people have already successfully retrained themselves via our Microsoft Azure Certified Data & AI track. The succes of this training is that you are not alone in this. You do it together with your fellow students and our coaches and trainers who guide you to the finish. You got this!

Why This Training? 

Together with Microsoft, we’ve put together this (English) 100% online course that gets you ready for a job in Tech in either 8 or 16 weeks full-time (excluding vacations). During the 8-week track, you’ll score two Microsoft certifications: Azure Fundamentals (AZ-900) and Microsoft Power BI Data Analyst (PL-300). In addition, you will go through an extensive career skills track.

This will prepare you for a job as a data professional, data analyst, business intelligence professional, or data & AI consultant. During the 16-week track, you will first complete the short track and then prepare for a third Microsoft certificate: Data Engineering on Microsoft Azure (DP-203). This track is interesting for people considering becoming a data engineer.
For both tracks: we can put you in contact with interested companies even before the training. Who knows, you might be able to start your training with a job guarantee. In that case, your new employer will pay for your training. Are you not looking for a job guarantee, for example because your employer wants you to follow this training? That is also possible! Check the frequently asked questions to see how that works.

Need financial support to follow this track?

Fear not, there are many funding and subsidy opportunities available to help you on your journey toward your brand-new career in tech. We’ve made a list of funding and subsidy opportunities for you.

Are you eager to learn? Do you have an affinity with Data & AI? Are you result driven? Analytical savvy? Then this track might be for you!


It is important that you have some analytical skills (for example, that you have a feeling for mathematics). Experience with Excel or programming languages, for example, is definitely a plus.

Academic level

We estimate that you need to have an academic (thinking) level for this training. You do not have to prove this to us with a University diploma; it is also possible that you reached this level through your work experience.

Work experience

Your previous career may be unexpectedly interesting for your new employer. During this course you will learn everything about Data & AI; but it’s your work experience and your character that makes you unique and stand out.


You have a growth mindset, instead of problems you only see challenges. You are assertive and communicative. You are eager to learn and stress resistant. You can deal with setbacks and therefore you are flexible.


We believe in age diversity, so there is no such thing as too young or too old. Everyone is welcome.
