What is Fidenz Academy?

Fidenz Academy is an on the job training program for fresh graduates or undergrads, to build core skills in programing and on how to effectively work on commercial projects. Fidenz has used this training methodology in the last eight years to recruit engineers, who now deliver complex projects with latest technologies.

Who May Join Fidenz Academy?

Anyone may apply to join the academy. The applicants would complete an aptitude test to be chosen as trainees.  We do not set criteria for selection, but assess individual’s interest and commitment for programming. We like if the participants have initiated developments on their own, may it be contributions to an open source project, or developing simple tools or utility to try out a programming language.

Trainees would gain two months of on the job training and experience at our office, Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 pm.

Aptitude Test

Interviewing large numbers of candidates is difficult and time consuming. Thus, we have set up an online portal where candidates would complete a series of programming challenges to prove themselves.

First 80 challenges out of the 100 teach you basics of JavaScript based on freeCodeCamp. There onward it tests your ability to implement algorithms and problem solving skills. If you complete a 90% of the challenges in the list, you will likely be selected as a trainee at Fidenz Academy. If you already have knowledge in JavaScript, you may start with the 81st challenge, and be selected to the academy accordingly.

The Training Structure

We have selected a set of technologies to train the participants. Initial few technologies are the basics of current software development ecosystem. These include HTML/CSS, JavaScript, AngularJS, Android/iOS, Ruby on Rails, PHP, Git, GitFlow, Photoshop, and .Net.

Everyone starts with HTML/CSS and JavaScript. The rest of the topics depend on individual’s interests and resource requirements of the company. The top priority of the trainee program is to provide experience on how to learn new technologies with a shorter learning curve. Providing in-depth knowledge in specific technologies is secondary at this stage.

Senior and experienced developers would mentor trainees closely throughout the training period. We provide training material for each technology and allocate time for the trainees to learn such by themselves. Provided training materials are verified and cover the fundamentals of learning. However, trainees may follow additional resources without limiting to the material we provide.

At the end of the allocated time to study (or earlier if individuals feel confident), we would assess the trainees with an assignment, to be completed as per standards set by Fidenz Academy. The trainees completing assignments successfully move on to the next level of training. The trainees who do not meet the basic discipline in coding will be dropped to provide the opportunity to another.

The above process continues for five different technologies and anyone completing all successfully would graduate from Fidenz Academy.

Post-Graduation

  • Fidenz Technologies issues an official letter certifying the successful completion of the training.
  • Graduates of the program are hired as permanent employees and become part of Fidenz Technologies team (depending on available openings).
  • If not hired by Fidenz due to unavailability of vacancies, we will recommend the graduates to our associate ICT companies.

History of the Academy

Back in 2011, Fidenz Academy wasn’t yet formed. We had invited undergraduates to train with us as an experiment. Such efforts were successful for both the trainees and Fidenz. Some of the trainees were permanently hired, and they are top senior engineers with us now.

Soon after the initial experiment, we were recruiting more and more trainees. This however, made the workload of the mentors cumbersome and overwhelming. Hence, such led us to formulate a set of tutorials for the trainees, followed by assessments. With such changes and modification Fidenz Academy was taking shape and form.

Today, the academy follows a well structured and an improved set of tutorials and assignments. Further, we have increased space to accommodate around 20 persons to train with us simultaneously.

Testimonials from Fidenz Graduates

Proud to mention, I am one of the first recruited through Fidenz Academy back in 2012. Now I am a tech lead and give leadership to my own team. An advantage I see at Fidenz is the ability to learn and master many relevant technologies, which I did in few years.

While giving technical leadership, I also assist in acquiring new technologies for the company. I enjoy collaborating on system designing and planning, code reviews, validating developments and performance improvements, and training new members at Fidenz.

Work experience at Fidenz is very much enjoyable to me. The good foundation I got through the academy, surely deserves an accreditation in this regard.

I joined Fidenz Academy back in 2015 as a third year university student. This training helped me to transform myself from a student to an engineer, when I was hired to be part of Fidenz family.

Thereafter, I lead a team of mobile application developers while providing them with mentoring and guidance. Today I lead a team of four developers on a project on intelligent transport systems (ITS). I am given complete responsibility over the project, and tasked with project management, deliveries, customer relationship management and more.

The experience I gathered at the academy could not have been replicated at any school or university. The Fidenz Academy certainly gave me a kickstart for my career.

I was mentored by senior engineers, with structured guidelines and tight schedules. With progressession of my knowledge and understanding, I started working on commercial projects and developments. I never looked back since then.

By joining Fidenz Academy I’ve learned a lot, and importantly i got a hands on opportunity to learn concepts and fundamentals of technology. For someone determined to improve their knowledge in the industry, this is the best place. Over the years the academy had gotten better with automation, structuring, and exposure; comparing to 2016 when I was a trainee.

I enrolled at the academy while completing my third year of BSc in information technology. With much aspiration but zero experience, I learned to develop mobile applications at Fidenz. I started with basics and fundamentals of Android, and later moved on to iOS. Today I am versed with both Android and iOS applications, and use advanced technologies.

I learnt how to successfully face and overcome challenges in commercial projects, while being a trainee at the academy. I encourage everyone else to experience this valuable opportunity.

The training environment at Fidenz was friendly and conducive to my learning. I obtained very useful and valuable training that would build a solid foundation in the web development technology. I started with the basics and fundamentals of Javascript, HTML, and CSS, and received continuous one-on-one guidance and support. I received constructive feedback and solutions using the industry best practices and standards.

Today I am working on a project with a Norwegian client on blockchain. I enjoy working here and am thankful for the training and guidance I receive at Fidenz. I know it will be useful for many years to come.
