Who we are

Having personally transitioned from a being Social Scientist to a Linux System Administrator, we recognized a significant gap in the IT industry.

Many people lacked the necessary background and skills to enter the field. Existing programs were either too expensive and intense or too cheap and ineffective.

To address this, we founded Yellow Tail Tech, offering a unique training process focused on Linux and AWS cloud engineering.

With over eight years of experience, we are now an industry leader.
If you’re ready to break into IT, join us in creating a more diverse and skilled workforce, making a lasting impact in technology.

Step 2: Pass the Certification

Our Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) Prep program will give you the knowledge and confidence that you need to become a Red Hat Certified System Administrator.

Our AWS SysOps Prep course will give you the knowledge and confidence that you need to become a Certified AWS SysOps Administrator.

Step 3: 2 months apprenticeship

We aim to break the Catch 22!

The program extends beyond certification as it is complemented by a 2 month apprenticeship that aims to bolster your experience.

Addressing the classic employment paradox, we aim to help you shatter the so-called ‘Catch 22’ – the predicament where employers require experience before offering a job, yet you need a job to gain experience.

Our apprenticeship offers a solution by providing hands-on exposure, bridging the gap between theoretical knowledge and real-world application. This experience will pave the way towards securing your first high-paying job, helping you to stand out among your peers.
