Rolls-Royce through its data innovation team, R2 Data Labs has launched a new certified Agile digital practitioner training course, stepping up its efforts to help companies and employees to prepare for a more digital future after the COVID-19 pandemic.
In May 2020, the company launched the free-to-access Helping You Prepare programme that which saw more than 24,000 trainees take advantage of the world-class digital training that Rolls-Royce uses for its own digital transformation.
Now, R2 Data Labs has unveiled a new six-week online Agile practitioner course with pre-enrolment open from 2 November 2020 and the course beginning on 7 November 2020.
Rolls-Royce says the course consists of freely accessible content for anyone to benefit. CPD accredited points, graded assessments and discussions with expert coaches about real-world scenarios and membership in the Rolls-Royce Agile community are part of a new optional paid-for package.
Manisha Mistry, Head of Digital Culture at Rolls-Royce, said: “More than 24,000 have enrolled in our free courses since we launched our Helping you Prepare campaign in May. Agile skills have been incredibly popular and people have told us that they want more content that is practically applicable in their industry settings. This course is designed for Agile practitioners by Agile practitioners and the timing means participants could start 2021 fully certified as agile trained and ready to go.”
The course will be accessed via leading training partner edX, and the first 100 verified certificate learners can get a 20% discount on the paid-for package using the code: “R2DLAGILE20”.
“This course builds on our experience of applying agile skills as a key part of Rolls-Royce’s mission to be the world’s leading industrial technology company. We think this course can really help people and businesses who want to develop a digital culture and an agile mindset to improve their opportunities,” added Mistry.
The program content includes video tutorials, interviews, multiple assessments and case studies, while the paid-for learning experience includes accreditation, access to expert coaches, graded assessments and networking opportunities.
