Specialized Training

While each learning path focuses on concepts specific to each role, many Appian designers benefit from additional project experience. Appian’s specialized training prepares students for project work through extended hands-on experience.

Students will begin by learning concepts in a typical classroom setting. Then, they must create a fully-functioning application on their own that must meet Appian’s best practices. Through additional project experience, designers obtain valuable training for advanced Appian concepts.
