Learn, Grow, Succeed: Introducing Training Plans for Individuals

Increase your Success Rate with Self-assigned Training Plans 

One of the five criteria for setting a SMART goal is that it has a due date and a specific time to achieve it. 

We’ve all likely heard of SMART goals by now. SMART goals are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bound.

Having time-bound goals with due dates keeps us accountable and focused to achieve our end result. Saying, “I want to lose 20 pounds,” usually looks a lot different than saying, “I want to lose 20 pounds before my birthday party in 90 days.” 

That’s why we’re here — to help you achieve your goals when it comes to attaining new cloud skills, and to do so quickly with comprehensive hands-on training.

It’s our goal to help you achieve yours 

At Cloud Academy, it’s our mission to help learners of all stages achieve new tech skills so they can excel in today’s cloud-based world, and to do that, we cater to two worlds: our fortune 500 enterprise customers, and our solo individual customers. This can be a challenge at times, but it’s a challenge we relish — and we never lose sight of our end-users’ needs.

Today we’re excited to announce that we’ve released a new game-changing feature for individual users that has already proven to help our largest enterprise customers increase newly acquired skills by 5x: Training Plans.

Your tech training accountability partner 

A Training Plan is a guided study plan designed to help you master a given topic. Training Plans are carefully handcrafted by our team of content experts. One of the reasons Training Plans are so valuable to your learning experience is that you can set a due date for your training, which sets a goalpost for you as we also help you track your progress weekly.

Consider us your tech training accountability partner. We remind you of the due date, assist you when you fall behind, and encourage you along the way to help you achieve your goals on time. 

Training Plans for all 

Until now, Training Plans were only available to managers in the enterprise version of Cloud Academy. Today, we’re releasing Training Plans to anyone and everyone! You’ll now be able to choose and assign yourself one of the available Training Plans in your Cloud Academy dashboard.

To access this feature, just click on the new button “Create Personal Training Plan” on your dashboard (pictured below) and follow the steps. You can find more details in this support article.
