Why you should Attend Software Training!

by Colin Quinn

Nowadays technology changes every five minutes, especially if you’re in the software industry. Keeping up with the latest trends can be a real challenge when you’re already managing a full-time development or testing job. Whether you’re looking to become an all star with the latest tool your company is implementing, become a smooth operator at an existing tool, or are looking to move up the corporate ladder, the big question is “how do I make it happen with an already full plate?” The answer is simple training!

Here at Kinetek we are big advocates of all training types especially Cognos and Deltek software and we have more than our fair share of experts willing to share their knowledge and experience. As if you needed more convincing to attend training, beyond flying to the nations capital, or spending a day at home on your comfy couch getting your mind-blown via one of our webex training classes, I’m going to share with you some reasons why you should register ASAP from some of our top courses.

Why should you attend training?

Aside from becoming an expert, you may be wondering why you should consider attending a training course. There really are an endless number of reasons why, especially for the software industry. The number one reason, the one that is same for everyone – training is hugely important, not only to stay on top of the endless new technologies, but also to further personal development and job satisfaction.

Here are some of the personal benefits of attending software training:

  • Staying current with updates and best practices
  • Cutting time in the learning process
  • Seeing examples laid out in front of you
  • Spending dedicated time focused on the technique, not on the end business goal
  • Boosting your resume by working towards or earning certificates
  • Learning real-world situations from both the instructors as well as the other students
  • Networking with other students as well as with the instructor
  • Increasing your productivity at work by applying the learned principles
  • Posing your key questions and get the answers you need

Clearly we’re a bit biased about training and how they should be conducted since training is one of the services we offer.  That being said, there area few big reasons why our customers love our training classes, including the ability to choose from various locations or formats (online, onsite at your office, or at our office training facility), the cost and of course the many topics we excel at. The major reason, is that the Kinetek team has some of the best developers in the the industry, with years of real world experience. Everyone has hands-on experience with the software, always learning and using new technology to provide you with the most intuitive training available.

Are you ready for the next step? Good, then sign up for a Kinetek training course for you or your employees!
