Support Bootcamps

We have several bootcamps that support team members can complete to earn an expert credential.

Replace the link to the Docs with a link to the checklist and put a (WIP) after your link to let people know that they won't get the expert badge by finishing the list in its current state.

Picking a Topic

Try to pick what the team needs most, thinking back to recent tickets you were not able to answer is usually a good starting point. Inform your manager which one you will be working on, so that they can let you know if there is a different area where the team really needs expertise. Always try to answer tickets on other advanced topics, but when it is time to do some dedicated learning, focus on one area at a time.
