Offering your staff training courses to improve their skills can be extremely beneficial to your business; not only will it allow you to improve your offering to your customers, but it also gives staff a huge morale boost.
In this current climate, traditional classroom training is not possible, but online training has become increasingly popular. Our usual Power BI training in London can’t run at the moment but we are proud to be able to offer Live Online Power BI Training which we have had great success with.
If you're considering investing in online training for your business, discover the main benefits we've found when training teams below. If you have any questions about our Power BI and Microsoft training, please get in touch with our team who’d be happy to give you more information.
Pros of online training
- Access from anywhere with an internet connection
- Choose a time that suits you and your team
- Ask questions in real-time
- Learn up to date and accurate information
One of the main benefits of online training is how convenient it is for attendees. You can join the training courses from anywhere, as long as you have a laptop and an internet connection. This makes it extremely easy to fit around other things and you can complete the training from the comforts of your own home, the office or anywhere else you’d feel comfortable doing so.
Whilst we run regular public courses that anyone can attend, we also run private courses for your company specifically, where we tailor all our Power BI training to exactly what you need. These can be booked around your schedule and at convenient times that suit your needs.
If you’d like to find out more about our private courses, give us a call on 0800 0199 746.
Not all of your staff need to be in every training session at the same time. Online training allows you to choose certain team members for specific training and other team members for different training. You can split them by skill level or even department level so that employees only learn new skills that are relevant to their job role and as a result, get the most out of training.
This makes online training extremely flexible to your needs and means you can get specific, relevant training for all of your staff.
All those who attend one of our Live Power BI courses are given access to a range of materials after the course that will help aid their training. These include notes and the slides from the particular session.
You will have access to these forever, giving you the opportunity to refer back to them whenever you need and keep your training fresh in your memory.
One of the great things about online training is how up-to-date and accurate the information is. As we are closely partnered with Microsoft, we often have information about upcoming Power BI updates before they are released, meaning our training is always at the cutting edge of Power BI.
We regularly review our courses to ensure they contain the latest updates and you and your staff can instantly use our training and put it into practice immediately, without your knowledge being out of date.
As our courses are run live, you can instantly connect with the trainers and ask any questions you may have in real time. This gives you the opportunity to really expand your knowledge in the areas that you’d like to gain more insight into.
We’re even happy to slightly tailor our live public Power BI training to incorporate information that attendees would like to know more information about. All of our courses are interactive and flexible to ensure you get the best out of it.
Furloughed workers can improve their skills
During the coronavirus pandemic, a lot of workers have been put on furlough which leaves them unable to work and connect with coworkers. They are however allowed to undertake training courses to improve their skills, ready for when they can go back to work.
Putting furloughed workers on online training courses, such as Power BI training, allows you to upskill them so that when they are able to come back to work, they have massively improved their skills and knowledge.
It also gives them some support and motivation that whilst they are not at work, they are still valued members of the team.
After all of our training sessions, we provide all attendees with follow up support, should you need it. Attendees can get in touch with us with any follow up questions or help they need with dashboards, reporting or any other aspects of Power BI.
