Today’s students can benefit from developing AI proficiency, regardless of their career aspirations. Whether they’re studying computer science, business, agriculture, or any other major, they need to skill up on AI—and now is your opportunity to teach them. To that end, we’re happy to announce AI Bootcamp for Educators (coming soon), where you can learn how to empower your students with the market-ready, in-demand AI skills they need to open doors for more employment opportunities and job success. These customizable bootcamps, designed by Microsoft, can help faculty and instructors in higher education teach students practical AI skills with Microsoft Azure AI technology. They also teach you how to prepare students to earn Microsoft Credentials, including industry-recognized Microsoft Certifications and verified scenario-based skill sets with Microsoft Applied Skills credentials.

With a “train-the-trainer” model, an instructor engages with you, teaching you fundamental AI and machine learning concepts and exploring related Azure services. Then, when you incorporate this content into your existing curriculum, you have what you need to teach your students relevant, real-world AI skills that align with the Microsoft Certified: Azure AI Fundamentals certification and the Microsoft Certified: Azure AI Engineer Associate certification. From covering the basics of AI to implementing conversational AI solutions, learn what you need to help your students quickly build critical AI knowledge and skills.

Today’s employers see Microsoft Certifications and Applied Skills credentials in AI as validation that job candidates have what it takes to plan, build, implement, and manage the next generation of intelligent solutions. AI Bootcamp for Educators gives you the support you need to help your students build expertise in this critical area.
