Training on-the-go with UKOUG

30 November 2015

Digital disruption is changing the face of professional training with training providers looking beyond traditional instructor-led training to delivery mechanisms that enable training-on-the-go. Find out you can use UKOUG member discounts as part of your ongoing development.


Keeping your skills current in a world where the rate of technological advance is so fast presents a number of challenges to both an individual and an organisation. The days of popping out of the office on a one-day course every time you need to learn about a new product or new development are gone. The rate of technological advance would mean you’d never get any work done because you’d be permanently out of the office training and your organisation’s training budget would quickly go through the roof!

So how do you keep your skills up to date?

Training providers, like Oracle University, have introduced alternative training methods to address these challenges; to make it simple and convenient to keep your Oracle skills up to date.

The value gained from face-to-face interactions with a good trainer and a room of other learners is invaluable and has been replicated online. Many Oracle topics lend themselves well to training on-the-go, making it possible for continuous learning to become part of everyone’s day to day working lives.

UKOUG has teamed up with approved Oracle Education reseller Vertex IT Solutions to provide our members with discounted training solutions to meet their need for training anytime, anywhere with Oracle University’s Training On Demand and Learning Streams.

With Training On Demand members are able to develop their in-depth product knowledge on their own schedule and then continue their learning free of charge for 12 months with Oracle Learning Streams which are short, easy-to-digest training videos about the latest features and best practices.

Vertex IT Solutions will be on hand in Birmingham next week to answer any of your training questions. You can find them on stand 43 in the exhibition hall, next to the UKOUG stand.
