Training Scenarios

If you’re an individual contributor, use training to boost performance in your current role, prepare for a new role or responsibility, or move your career in a whole new direction.

If you’re a hiring manager, consider outsourcing new hire onboarding tasks, reducing the burden on the rest of your team.

If you’re a student in a code camp or programming class, personalized one-on-one support can help you get the most out of your program, whether it’s a single session or on-going coaching.

Here are some examples of the types of training that can be useful for different roles. There are many other possibilities, and I’m happy to craft a training plan that works for your specific needs.

Writer Prepare for a transition from non-technical writing to technical writing by learning Linux/macOS terminal commands, DITA, Oxygen, and Git.
Manual Tester Move into a higher-paying test automation role by learning the basics of Java, object-oriented programming concepts, and Selenium.
UI/UX Designer Onboard into a new job at a software company with training in Git, Jira, and the Agile/Scrum process.
Dev Tech Lead Increase your visibility within your engineering department by learning presentation skills.
Product Owner Reduce miscommunication and expensive rework by learning cutting-edge requirements gathering techniques with Cucumber, Gherkin, and Example Mapping.
Documentation Prepare for your company’s new APIs by learning about REST, curl, Postman, and REST API documentation best practices.
