Participant instructions for the Beyond the Cloud

Updated over a week ago

1. Beyond the Cloud employer projects is an exclusive program for Beyond the Cloud participants.

2. The Beyond the Cloud team and your program mentors will create your employer project teams - each with five participants.

3. You will then be matched with an employer project closely aligned to your digital infrastructure skills training in Cloud Technology, Development or data or network administration.

4. Each team member will receive an email inviting you to set up your Riipen account and join the Beyond the Cloud Portal. Click ‘’set password’’ and enter and confirm your chosen password.

5. A second email ‘Riipen membership created’ will allow you to access your team page on the Beyond the Cloud Riipen portal. Click “view” and you can then log in with your email address and the password you set up in the previous step.

6. Next, you will need to agree to Riipen’s Terms of Service.

7. Once in the Beyond the Cloud portal, you can select “Profile” from the navigation menu on the left of the screen.

8. Here you can edit your participant profile. Add your pronouns (optional), location, and choose up to 5 categories of interest. You can further personalize your profile by including a photo, your bio, and uploading your resume. This will be shared with employers when you are working on their project.

9. Under My Content, select “Projects”, from the left navigation. Here you will be able to view the details of your team’s employer project. Select your team name, and click

“Sign” to formally agree to the Beyond the Cloud Terms and Conditions.

10. You’re now all set to begin working on your Beyond the Cloud placement project! Click “start project” and send a welcome message to the employer from you and your teammates.
