GitLab All-Remote Certification (Remote Work Foundation)

GitLab via Independent



GitLab is a pioneer in the all-remote space. As one of the largest all-remote companies in the world, we have developed a custom certification program to test and apply knowledge attained throughout the all-remote section of the handbook. Emerging leaders must quickly learn and deploy remote-first practices and skills while expanding their knowledge of remote management and overall remote fluency.

Presented at a self-directed pace, the GitLab remote certification is designed to give new managers and individual contributors an opportunity to master all-remote business concepts and build key skills in remote subject areas.

Participants will gain a point of view on all-remote through self-paced learning and reading.
