The JIRA administrator training program was constructed with an eye on the specific needs highlighted by clients during our Atlassian consultancy projects. Since the JIRA admin training course is based on actual needs, you’ll be safe in the knowledge that the course is extremely relevant to your day to day work. And whether you are using JIRA 6, or the latest JIRA 7 (JIRA Core, JIRA Software, JIRA Service Desk) you can be assured that the skills you learn here are compatible with all current versions of JIRA.
The training course is aimed at candidates who are required to install, upgrade, configure or administer JIRA as part of their role. The JIRA Admin Training course assumes candidates are familiar with general JIRA usage and the JIRA UI.
The JIRA training course is broken down into 8 core modules with each one logically flowing into the next to customize JIRA for a particular use case. This use case will demonstrate the major elements of JIRA’s configuration.
Following the 8 administration modules, we present a module on JIRA Agile and another on JIRA Service Desk.
The JIRA Admin Bootcamp course is an immersive, practical 2 day course that usually runs from 9.30am to 5.00pm. Complimentary lunch and morning/afternoon refreshments are included.

In this module we take an in-depth look at the relationship between issue types, projects and workflow schemes. We continue to build our use case by adding some workflows.
[accordion title=”Module 5: JIRA Notifications”]
