Octo University

At Octo, we believe our most valuable assets are our employees, and if we are to serve our Federal Government customers and our country, we need to invest in the people who make Octo possible. But technology evolves constantly, and our employees are eager to keep up with trends (we are known for our innovation after all). That’s why in June 2020, we launched Octo University, a training program offered at no cost to employees who are motivated to grow, diversify, and practice new skills.
