PHOENIX – (BUSINESS WIRE) – 4. November 2021–
November is National Career Development Month, and the impact The Great Resignation has on today’s workforce and the work environment means many working adults are willing to change their career focus and strategy. The University of Phoenix has expanded its support for learning autonomy and in-demand skills with new career development courses in information technology. These courses are designed to help busy adults quickly develop professional skills in high-demand areas.
Micro-burst learning in the form of continuing education courses provides learners with skills-building opportunities to save time and money outside of a traditional university course. The University of Phoenix has introduced new professional development courses in the field of information technology as well as a multi-course track for people who want to initiate, improve or steer their careers in a Scrum Master role. The skills covered in the Scrum Master Track are intended to support learners in typical entry-level, intermediate and advanced jobs in the Scrum Master area, including Agile Scrum Masters, Scrum Masters / Agile Coaches and Business Analysts / Scrum Masters.
“Learners can take this opportunity to expand their skills,” said Haley Foutch, product manager for professional development at the University of Phoenix. “These courses offer flexibility and offer several self-directed, bite-sized learning modules that impart skills that are directly applicable to today’s growing professions.”
The university’s continuing education courses are not counted, 100% online and available for up to one year from purchase. They are self-directed and typically last around 30 hours so learners can finish them on their own schedule. The new information technology course comprises two courses and should be completed in around 60 hours. The Scrum Master Track prepares individuals for two industry certification exams, including Professional Scrum Master (PSM) I and Professional Scrum Master (PSM) II.
Learners can repeat and complete the assessments as often as they want to ensure they understand the key concepts and demonstrate the new skill. After successfully completing a course, participants can also showcase their newly acquired skills to employers by sharing a certificate of completion.
The initial catalog of continuing education courses includes content in digital marketing, out-of-hospital healthcare, information technology, and virtual teaching. The university will continue to expand its course portfolio for today’s busy professionals who need to train quickly and inexpensively in a changing job market.
