Skillsoft Bootcamps

Skillsoft Bootcamps are a series of interactive streaming events hosted by live instructors. Bootcamps allow you to take advantage of the wisdom of industry-leading experts and practitioners. Three to five live sessions are offered each week and last anywhere from two to four hours per session. Following the live event, a recording is available on-demand for replay.

Note: Bootcamps are currently available as a beta within Percipio. We ask that you please forgive our registration experience at this time. As a beta release, Percipio can track who has accessed a Bootcamp but cannot track how much time they have spent in a session.

You can access Bootcamps in either your web browser or the Percipio mobile app. To navigate to a list of Bootcamps, click Library, then choose Skillsoft Bootcamps. You can also use search within Percipio to find Bootcamps.
