Course Structure

This course takes place over eight weeks. Each week consists of a combination of instructor-led sessions as well as independent practice and self-learning on the part of the student. Instructors meet with the cohort for two-hour sessions, twice per week to deliver new topics, review concepts, and answer questions. Students should plan to spend approximately 10 hours per week learning during this course.

Additionally, there are up to three special, optional sessions to drill down into specific topics of interest to the learners, delivered by guest speakers from within Appian. Outside of live sessions, instructors also set up office hours and group chat spaces for students to engage in an ad-hoc manner.

Every participant who successfully completes the course will receive up to two exam vouchers to attempt an Appian certification exam.
