With economic growth, increased diversity in business and an ever-growing number of millennials in the workforce, companies are looking for flexible, agile alternatives to acquire and apply the knowledge necessary to meet new demands. Today, it’s more important than ever to promote knowledge acceleration, so organizations can solve process engineering and operational challenges as they occur.
However, with hundreds of thousands of jobs lost in the recent oil and gas downturn, as well as increased employee turnover, there is often limited in-house expertise to address these challenges. Internal subject matter experts may have higher-priority tasks than training new hires, or they may not have stayed up to date with the latest software releases and innovations.
Employees looking for material may struggle to find the most relevant training — if there is material at all. And a lack of application-centric training means employees spend too much time learning parts of the software that are not relevant to the challenges they are facing right now.
To address the diverse training needs of our customers, we have launched Aspen Knowledge, a comprehensive solution designed to help customers overcome a growing knowledge gap and accelerate their ability to solve the most complex engineering and operational challenges. Aspen Knowledge consists of four different offerings.
Aspen Classroom Learning: These expert-led classroom and virtual training courses are offered as public, standard classroom training in 60 locations worldwide, or virtually via internet conferencing. The small class sizes allow students to ask questions and get personalized help, as well as network with software users from other companies.
Aspen How-To: This library of brief, self-serve videos and digital content helps users solve very specific, small-scope, well-defined problems without having to sift through longer training class material. These are quick videos that can be watched and applied immediately. They’re targeted to a specific problem and are available on-demand from any internet-enabled device.
Aspen Exchange: This is where you get access to a wide variety of training resources, including Aspen How-To, knowledge base articles, examples and other information from inside AspenTech products.
Aspen eLearning: The newest addition to our Aspen Knowledge offering, Aspen eLearning is comprehensive training created by experts and delivered on demand in bite-sized modules and courses. Aspen eLearning features include:
Bite-sized modules designed to fit into a busy schedule
On-demand delivery available 24/7 from any internet-enabled device
Learning paths that make it easy to progress from beginner to advanced in each focus area
Whether you are a new or experienced user of AspenTech products, or whether you prefer in-person or on-demand training, you can find the right option for your organization. AspenTech courses are all developed and taught by subject matter experts and use adult learning theory principles: teach me, show me, practice.
