The best kind of learning technology

Our training is hands-on, but what that means has changed through the years we’ve run Drupal training. Now you’re just as likely to see learners drawing on paper, collaborating with someone, giving a quick demo, or of course, working hard on their computers. I was reminded of this recently looking at some photos of a client training by our partner, Cegeka with Laurens Vandeput, Senior Drupal developer and team coach.

Acquia, the renowned Drupal software & solutions specialists, today announced the introduction of the Acquia Certification Program, along with an expansion of its Learning Services.

Acquia offers developer tools, cloud solutions and global expertise to more than 4,000 companies and brands including Twitter, Mercedes Benz, Warner Music Group, and Stanford University.

These newly enhanced training and learning services follow up quite quickly from the launch of Acquia Lift just last month.

Acquia are offering up the industry's first professional assessment and credentialing program to recognize Drupal and Acquia expertise.

Employing systematic, objective assessments to validate the skills of developers and users, the program helps organizations effectively assess their team, plan their development projects, and support their organization's career and professional development initiatives in a flexible and scalable way.

Working smarter: Drupal-enable your team with training

In the landscape of web development, working and learning are converging. I think about this quite a bit at Acquia as we keep tuning our courses and training program.

We often focus on the technical benefits of adopting Drupal. However, it occurred to me the other day, there are potential auxiliary benefits in terms of empowering staff by using Drupal. Drupal has the potential to increase job satisfaction and motivation by posing a fundamental shift in how individuals and organization work.

Drupal Goes to College

Starting in September, I’ll be teaching a 10 week long course at Queen's University Belfast in their Open Learning Program. Register now for this course £110.00.

Acquia has been working closely with colleges to deliver Free student Drupal training on campus. But we're working to expand Drupal's reach into higher education by developing this 10 week course.

Meet Acquia's training partners

By Heather

I'm going to be blogging about our training partners and their trainers this summer, because they are awesome, and I'm very proud of what they're doing. All of our training partners are really busy. For example, Doug Vann is traveling around the US to teach and consult, soon he'll be in Austin on July 9-13 for a full week of training courses with NxtTeam. It's a good thing he doesn't also have to update and maintain his own materials.

NYC Student Discounts on Drupal Training

A friend just sent me a link to a job description. Given that I work at Acquia, and run training, this should not be remarkable. Most of my friends outside of Acquia & Drupal imagine that I must have a line to pools of Drupal developers, designers, and other folks just waiting for work. [Insert knowing laughter from Drupalists the world over here.]

Training @ DrupalCon & Beyond

Wow! It's been an exciting three days so far of DrupalCon. Trainings, meetings, presentations, BOFs, keynotes, booth time, parties, and time with old (and new) friends. For me, I've been meeting partner after partner and getting excited about the year to come.

Before I get to more recap though, I want to highlight a couple events coming up in the coming weeks.
