Best Technical Skills Development Software

Technical skills development providers give users an end-to-end learning experience designed to teach and hone technical skills. Companies can leverage technical skills development providers to train employees on entirely new skills and upgrade the existing skills of incumbent employees.

These programs typically work by having users take a skill assessment to begin. The assessment is graded according to demonstrated proficiency, and the program recommends modules for the users to take. These modules include videos, interactive content, and projects designed to have users actually create something and demonstrate their skill level after taking the course. Technical skills development providers also usually have role-based modules and engage in skill gap analysis so that an employee in a given role can assess exactly what it is they need to improve and then take the course designed to impart that skill.

Technical skills development providers are similar to online course providers, and many online course providers also offer technical skills development. The difference lies in how robust the technical skills development provider courses are, with each skill being built and demonstrated via various projects.

To qualify for inclusion in the Technical Skills Development category, a provider must:

  • Offer a course of study online
  • Be designed for acquisition technical skills in coding, IT operations, database management, cyber security, and more
  • Offer skill gap analysis
  • Assess student skill proficiency via projects and exams
