Can anyone provide any advice on what college courses or a training program would be helpful to get into an email deliverability career track? I’m currently an Email Marketing Manager producing emails and using what knowledge I have to design, code, and deploy deliverable emails, but I’d like to get these technical skills to improve my work:

- Email delivery systems (PowerMTA)
- Detailed knowledge of DNS and SMTP Protocols
- Email Authentication (DKIM, SPF, Dmarc)
- Knowledge of email creation, basic html and experience with large scale mailings
- Experience with ISP whitelisting and feedback loops, greylist compliance, and preventing blacklisting.
- Comprehension of bulk email compliance policies for major Email providers.
- Ability to read/write ANSI SQL
- Familiarity with Unix command line and scripting

Programming courses at the local college? A website with great tutorials? Let me know!
