Virtual on-demand learning platform for software developers launched
Real-Time Innovations (RTI) has announced RTI Academy, an on-demand, virtual learning platform that provides RTI customers access to Connext DDS training, as they architect, develop and deploy intelligent distributed systems. RTI Academy provides Connext users with the flexibility to access courses online, at their own pace. This allows development teams to efficiently scale by quickly onboarding new members.
2020 gave way to remote work, with many companies having to quickly pivot to a new way of operating. This new environment required a revised way to train employees on advanced technologies, all from remote locations, various time zones and at their own pace. RTI’s virtual training platform enables Connext users to access and participate in RTI product training anywhere and is on-demand, so customers can reference best practices for designing their autonomous systems at any time. RTI Academy courses can be shared across development teams and allows customers to stay current on the latest features of the Connext product.
The courses offered are tailored to each customer’s RTI Support Plan. As your team grows, your new team members will also gain access to the same training plan for building distributed systems using RTI Connext. The three training tiers are as follows:
- Basic: Training includes the fundamentals of the RTI Connext Product Suite with basic-level training courses to kick off your team’s ability to develop system applications.
- Essential: In addition to the training content available with the Basic support plan, the Essential plan takes a developer-focused approach into exclusive content, including specific examples and best practices around building distributed systems.
- Premium: In addition to the training content available with the Essential plan, the Premium plan delivers the highest level of comprehensive training and content support for your project and your team. This includes access to sophisticated use cases and scenarios for architecting distributed systems.
RTI Academy courses will continue to expand training offerings throughout the year as new capabilities are added to the RTI Connext Product Suite.
“2020 proved to be a year of adaptation for all companies and organisations, as the shift to remote work and training environments became the new normal,” said Mark Hamilton, Vice President of Services at RTI. “We understand the challenges that come with navigating this new normal and have worked to adapt accordingly for our customers. We wanted to create a virtual training platform that provides the same, if not greater value than what our customers received prior to remote work but in an innovative way.
"RTI Academy now allows our customers the proper flexibility and scalability to continue their business success as they design and develop next-generation autonomous systems.”
