Why Join OpenAcademy?


In short, we only deliver what is tested and working for us. Our programmes are built on real experiences by practitioners and is designed to help you gain realistic insights without the fluff.

Trainers & Mentors

Get to learn from people who have been working on it—literally. You’ll get to gain valuable insights from and work closely with industry professionals to help give you a fresh and realistic perspective to your work.


Designed for cross-functional understanding, you may expect diversity not only within the course, but also opportunities to meet people from different backgrounds, places, and industries.


With the low barrier of entry to tech, there is an influx of tech developers and managers leading to an increase of competition within the industry - and for your career. So, ask yourself this, “How can I increase my value or worth as a software developer?”


OpenAcademy aims to provide you a hands-on experience in becoming an all-rounded developer beyond just code writing. From communicating in non-technical teams, project management to devops, learn from instructors with real industry experience and the utilisation of real-life business-use cases.
