What sets our program apart?

Tailored Curriculum: Our curriculum has been designed based on the AI skills needed to excel in remote AI jobs within high-tech companies.

Hands-On Projects and Real-World Application: Emphasis on project-based learning ensures graduates can apply their ai skills immediately.

Community Building: Join a supportive community passionate about advancing AI technologies that opens doors to remote AI jobs and exciting career growth.

The Llama Camp helped me a lot. It helped me get out of my comfort zone. I received 3 job offers after taking Awana's Llama Camp for a front-end position.

I had the opportunity to participate in an amazing dev camp to level my soft and technical skills to work for US companies. I highly recommend Awana to anyone looking to play big and challenge themselves abroad.

The camp allowed me to level up with the highest technologies. Maybe at some points we felt lost and overwhelmed given it was an intensive program. At the end, it's important we learn to adapt to it.

Who is our training for?

Our AI Skills Accelerator is a self-paced and mentored course for: 

  • Experienced Developers: Software engineers, programmers, or developers with at least 2—3 years of professional coding experience. This ensures a solid foundation to build upon.

  • Motivated Learners: Professionals eager to expand their skillset and willing to dedicate 6-8 hours per week to the program. Consistency and commitment are crucial for success.

  • Cloud Enthusiasts: Developers exposed to cloud computing platforms like AWS, Azure, or GCP. Familiarity with these technologies will help understand the deployment and integration of AI solutions.
