CBT Nuggets offers IT training Netflix style

Rob Enderle | Aug. 1, 2016
Columnist Rob Enderle recently learned about an IT training company that, in the spirit of Netflix, is online and subscription-based.


What attracted me to CBT Nuggets at first was the promise of extra income as a teacher. These spots are few and only available to folks who are at the top of their respective fields.   Pay is tied to attendance but the courses are streamed so you could end up with residual payments for some time and CBT Nuggets pays for you to maintain your own certifications as well. The advantages to participating in this side of the program are not only maintaining your own education level but meeting others who could become future employees through student interaction. You also gain third party validation of your own expertise.  

The CBT Nuggets method just makes sense

Given how much churn there is in IT and how much value is associated with current skills and certifications prioritizing the related activity should go a long way towards job security.   It isn’t uncommon for IT to go through staffing reductions but shortages in key skills remain so making sure you have them also assures your paycheck. Choosing the right school is important and that means matching the content and method to your skill needs and how you like to be taught. This new, to me anyway, Netflix-like method makes a ton of sense to me as does learning online at your own house as long as it is both hands on and lecture (otherwise you and I are likely to dose or zone out and miss what we need to learn).

Thanks again to CBT Nuggets for the update and here is hoping you find this information as useful to read as I did.
