A Cloud Journey for Everyone

Skills and Staffing

A lack of knowledge should not stop you from adopting the cloud. While every organization seems to be hiring, who's training? We’re committed to making every organization cloud-native. As an authorized training partner for Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure training, we offer a cloud learning journey for everyone. For organizations that aim at building up their cloud-native expertise internally, Xebia also offers unique hiring and traineeship programs.

Beat the Skill Gap

There is a big shortage of cloud skills in the market today. Every organization seems to be hiring, but who's investing in the skill development of their own teams? We believe that a lack of skill is the biggest challenge for cloud adoption. That is why Xebia acknowledges training as the key to success.

There is a great great opportunity for organizations to overcome the big knowledge gap in the market. Training programs provide the most efficient and effective way to upskill individuals, teams, and entire organizations. Besides an extensive public schedule and custom in-house programs, we also regularly organize worldwide free training events, we create training courses for the big cloud providers and share our knowledge by writing books and blogs.

With 18+ years of experience and over 40,000 people trained, you can rely on Xebia to provide the right training in the right style to any IT professional.


Planning the Journey

Create Your Learning Program

A learning needs analysis is a great foundation for a reskilling plan. In four distinct phases, we determine and analyze the current state. With these findings as a starting point and your learning objectives in mind, we develop a learning plan. Finally, we work with you and the team to plan the training program. On top of the learning need analysis, we can also advise and set up a Career Framework with a new/desired structure for your engineering teams and beyond.


In 1 to 4 weeks, we determine the starting point for your learning journey.

  • Map out the organization structure;
  • Define short and long-term goals;
  • Determine current knowledge and skill levels;
  • Gather learning interests and needs per team and individual.


In a period of 3 to 5 weeks, we pinpoint the right training for each individual and team. We do this by taking the three following steps:

  • Analyze the information gathered from the previous phase;
  • Organize a Learning Needs Analysis workshop;
  • Scope the training programs to include other relevant domains, such as:
    Data, AI & Machine Learning, Agile & Scrum, Product Owner, Stakeholder Management, and DevOps.


Based on the gathered information, it is time to we create a Learning Plan. This plan contains a first proposal of the learning journeys per team/individual. Before finalizing the learning plan, we discuss the outcome with the relevant stakeholders per department/team. 


We use the final learning plan to schedule the sessions. The training sessions are scheduled based on the availability of the participants and can consist of a combination of on-demand, virtual, instructor-led training, coaching, workshops, webinars, and innovation/hackathon days.
Online or In-Person - Live or On-Demand

Training Formats That Meet Your Prefered Learning Style

As an organization that is globally active, we understand the importance of efficient and interactive learning environments that cater to the specific needs of every individual.

  • In-Classroom Training
    In-classroom, instructor-led training draws on a mix of lectures and hands-on assignments and uses classic tools like whiteboards, post-its, and sometimes even board games.
  • Online Training
    Online, instructor-led training uses a combination of different tools and scenes to provide the optimal experience.
  • On-Demand Training
    Xebia is an official reseller of on-demand training from leading platforms including Acloudguru, Pluralsight and Qwiklabs.
Accelerate your growth

Traineeships and Hiring

Running and developing cloud-native infrastructure requires solid skills and experience. Xebia offers a unique hiring and traineeship program that enables organizations to build up their own teams, even during the initial process of making the cloud-native infrastructure. 

While many organizations acknowledge the establishment of cloud capabilities as strategic to the company, they often have difficulties with recruiting cloud engineers and DevOps professionals. Our services and traineeship programs are typically designed for professionals with 2-4 years of experience. The focus of the programs is to develop both technical skills as well as personal leadership skills.


Advanced Training Programs

At the end of the program, each individual will have what it takes to join your organization directly, without any strings attached – offering a long-term solution to build your internal capabilities.

Combined with consultancy, our trainee programs provide the fastest and easiest way to implement cloud-native infrastructure while building up engineering capabilities to maintain the features in the long term.
