Software AG announced at IUG 2021, ALL self-paced training is now FREE. Wait, what?!? That’s right! Software AG has decided to further invest in users like yourself by making ALL self-paced training available for FREE.
What does this mean for you? It’s simple, using Software AG’s New Approach to Learning , you have access to self-paced training content. Giving you a choice on how and where you want to learn, the new self-paced curriculum is focused on where you are in your journey. Whether you are onboarding as a new user or just exploring and evaluating our technology, there’s are self-paced training options designed to support you in this effort.
And for those advanced Learners or Learners who have been with us for a while, we are working on extending our approach by building out Continuous Learning content in support of your learning requirements. Bottom line, the only time you’ll ever have to pay for training is if you elect to hire an Instructor to deliver a course on your behalf.
All self-paced courses include pre-recorded Instructor presentations, product demonstrations, exercises and for our cloud-based products, access to a free lab environment. For on-prem products, we offer access to a virtual machine hosted by our partner, Readytech. For a minimal fee, you can have a simulated lab environment without any installs or challenging set up.
If you want to learn more about this new approach, referred to as The Learner’s Journey or the new Digital Product Badges (Associate and Professional ) available now to help you build your own personal brand and get the recognition you deserve, here’s a link the session at IUG 2021 (Click HERE). This 40 min session will teach you how to get started, build your own personal brand, including a demo of the Learning Portal, providing an easy way to find the learning solution you need now.
In addition, Software AG’s Product Enablement Team is forming a Learning Forum. This small global group spanning across all product families will serve to give feedback and direction as to where we go next in our Enablement transformation journey. With a goal of ensuring you the Learner takes an active role our continued efforts, we’re forming a user-based forum.
To join, simply send an email to Learning.Portal@softwareag.com with your name, company name, a list of the products you’re using, number of years of experience with our technology along with 1-2 sentences on why you think you’d make a good addition to the team. All submissions must be received before July 1st.
Seats are limited so we’re looking for creative thinkers who are highly opinionated and want to help influence how Software AG’s Product Enablement team supports the learning needs of the community. If you think that sounds like a good fit for you, it will require 1 hour/month of remote meetup to discuss topics announced in advance. In exchange, Forum Members will receive early access to courses and new Certifications as a thank you for your help. Members will be announced week of July 16th .
Much more to come in the next few months so stay tuned and be sure to let us know if you have any questions or need further support (Email: Learning.Portal@softwareag.com).
