If you have been living under a rock and are not familiar with TrainSignal, they are a training company that solves the problem of subpar training. As an IT professional there is surely a course that would meet your needs. One of things I love about TrainSignal is how supportive they are of the community. They showed that support again this year and awarded each of the vExperts a year of free training! I am really excited about this and plan to take full advantage of this offer.
One thing you will notice when you sign in to your account is that the site is really easy to navigate. You can quickly find the course you are wanting and start your training. If you are like me and can’t sit down and finish the course in one take, they give you a progress meter on each course you are enrolled in. What’s even better is that you can access your training 24/7 with their offline player!
I plan to do more course reviews once I get started, but these are great tools to have in your arsenal, especially if you are planning on taking any certification exams, or just staying up on current technology.
Remember how I said that one of the things I liked about TrainSignal is how they give back to the community? Well, here is one of those moments. TrainSignal has generously offered up one of their “IT Survival Kits” which includes the following:
- Laptop Backpack
- Zombie T-Shirt
- 30 Day free training certificate
We’re going to make it super simple to enter as well. Just follow @TrainSignal and @DennisMSmith on twitter and tweet the message(s) below (all of these can be completed below). You must be following both accounts to be eligible, and the contest will run from July 17 to August 31. I will announce the winner here on my blog and from my twitter account.
TrainSignal will ship the IT Survival Kit to any country, with the exclusion of Russia.
