IT Skills Training: targeted to increase your confidence and competence

18. February 2021, Avatar of André MeinertAndré Meinert

IT skills training and certifications have long been important elements for increasing your visibility and marketability on business platforms such as LinkedIn and Xing. But they are more than just ways to polish up your CV or win praise from colleagues and friends on social media. In fact, the nature of the technologies we all work with demands that each of us stay sharp, current and constantly learning. 

For any of us, ongoing training to expand and refresh our knowledge base and skillset is good at minimum because it keeps us engaged and reduces the risk of getting burned out – a serious issue for IT pros. It’s also provides value in large and small ways to our colleagues and our employers by enabling us to share useful tips or best practices to fellow IT admins, or by giving us the skills we need to help our organizations plan for or implement new technologies and solutions.

A great example of this approach comes from outside the IT world in commercial aviation. Even though some folks get nervous every time they board a flight, airline travel is one of the safest forms of transportation. A big reason for that is that airline pilots are required to complete rigorous recurrent training twice a year. That does a lot to keep their cockpit, decision-making and crew coordination skills sharp.

We have a similar approach to designing and conducting baramundi training online and – when we emerge from the pandemic -- in-person. Our sessions cover current trends and developments in UEM, provide the best ways to use baramundi solutions in ways that match your current needs, and prepare you for new challenges.

Paradigm shifts require expanded knowledge

baramundi training focuses on giving you a well-informed, contextual understanding how IT environments are evolving, and how both gradual changes and rapid IT paradigm shifts might affect you in the coming weeks, months or years.

Consider the move to cloud computing. Cloud-based apps and data storage had been increasing in use partly as an adjunct to the gold-standard of tightly managed, firewall-protected corporate networks. Then the onset of the global pandemic fundamentally changed our thinking and practices. The sudden and massive switch to remote work immediately required IT departments to connect users and manage endpoints as seamlessly as possible  via the cloud. In many cases that was done as a giant workaround with unprecedented speed – and with the consequences left to be sorted out later.

That’s where our training comes in. We provide courses that deal with essential topics that cover current challenges like remote endpoint management and expert tips on the best ways to use baramundi Management Suite. At the same time, we’re always are looking ahead to subjects you want or need to know.

Examples include extensive training around Office 365 and associated requirements for the managing the platform, plus expertise on Windows 11, and the advantages of IT automation (like freeing the time you need for training and additional certifications!)

These are suitable for beginners as well as experts and are available online training (and on-site when appropriate) Participants learn about the latest product features and standards in Unified Endpoint Management.

Webinars are aimed at IT admins considering using bMS and want to learn more about how they can could the system in their environments or prepare for a free trial of the full system via a live interactive demo.

These are bespoke, practice-oriented IT workshops tailored to meet your specific company environment and needs.  

We’re offering interactive online courses until the necessary restrictions from the Corona situation eventually subside when we expect to resume in-person training at our headquarters in Germany or at your location. Either way, we and every IT pro who’s attended a session believe that training is a priority that should stay near the top of your professional to-do lists.
