What Can I Find In XNAT Academy Courses?

course components

XNAT Academy courses are made up of short, engaging video lectures, screencast demonstrations of key functionality, quizzes and learning assessments, and practical exercises that let you develop your skills in an actual XNAT environment.

How Long Does It Take To Complete A Course?

Depending on the depth of material that is being offered, you might be able to complete a simple course in a single afternoon. A more complex certification-level course will require an investment of several hours per week over multiple weeks.

Is There A Charge For Courses?

All of the lecture materials in XNAT Academy can be audited for free. However, our more in-depth courses have a "Certification Track" which requires paid enrollment. The fees for each course's Certification vary. Note: The storefront for Certification Registrations will be available soon.

What Are Certifications and How Can I Get One?

XNAT Academy Certifications are offered on more complex courses, such as the Admin 101 course, and require the completion of learning assessments and practical exercises. Certifications are issued as printable PDF documents, and are also tracked in our student database. Certifications require a significant investment of time, and we see these Certifications as valuable additions to a learner's professional CV. There is a charge for enrolling in the Certification Track of a course like this. Note: The storefront for Certification Registrations will be available soon.
