What are your team's preferences when it comes to AWS cloud training? And how do you communicate about your training programs to encourage staff to sign up, attend and follow through to certification?
When identifying the right courses, planning modalities and implementing internal communication about training, organisations have successfully leaned into AWS partners like Lumify for cloud training support.
AWS cloud training needs according to learners
For its 17th edition, Skillsoft conducted a worldwide survey of 8,000 IT professionals and decision makers and released the Skillsoft 2022 IT Skills and Salary Report.
On training modalities, the survey found that a formal, instructor-led approach was a favourite, as opposed to peer-to-peer training.
Almost 70% of IT professionals who participated in formal, expert-led AWS cloud training sessions at work and/or live, instructor-led, online training sessions rated them to be “very” or “extremely” effective.
IT professionals also favour virtual learning provided the quality is high, the content is updated and it offers hands-on practice. Over the past 12 months, virtual learning was one of the popular training types:
63% of IT professionals attended a web-based, on-demand session
Over 50% used free online learning tools
When it comes to subscription-based learning, responding learners said the following criteria were important:
46% quality of content
41% opportunities for hands-on practice
33% updated content
The SkillSoft report also indicated a need for organisations to improve how they communicate about their training programs, so employees can take full advantage of them. These can be team announcements, career development strategy group discussions, pre- session emails to staff, calendar invitations with automated messages, one-on-one catchups with direct supervisors and reminders on group chat channels.
