Aug 12, 2018
IF YOU are keen to upskill yourself in areas such as predictive analytics, data science and security solutions, you can get a leg up at the new IBM Skills Academy @ Kaplan.
The academy is a partnership between Kaplan Learning Institute (KLI) and IBM.
KLI is a leading corporate training and financial literacy provider in Singapore.
By combining IBM’s deep research capabilities with KLI’s skilled training resources, IBM Skills Academy @ Kaplan is able to offer a suite of industry validated technical courses to those who are looking to acquire new skill sets.
The courses employ a mixture of self-paced learning with interactive digital resources, as well as on-site face-to-face training and coaching.
Each of these eight courses — Blockchain Developer, Predictive Analytics Modeler, Business Intelligence Analyst, Artificial Intelligence Analyst, Cloud Application Developer, Security Intelligence Engineer, Application Security Engineer and Big Data Engineer — equip students with in-demand technical skills.
The academy trains students to be industry-focused professionals who will fit into any modern corporation that needs expertise in cyber security, data analytics and emerging technology.
After completing any of the courses, graduates will earn a digital badge credentialled by IBM and recognised by the global information technology industry.
IBM digital badges demonstrate the level of proficiency and related technical skills a graduate has achieved.
Graduates may share their cross-industry digital badges on social and professional networking sites, as well as in their digital signatures.
Potential employers can use this relatively new method of skill validation as part of their recruiting process.
