Modern learners meet modern training at SAS Global Forum 2017


Word on the proverbial technology street is that online learning is ideal for modern learners, and, at SAS, we wholeheartedly agree.

In 2016, more than 80,000 SAS users trained in an online or blended learning format. In 2017, we kicked off the year with the announcement of our new SAS Learning Subscription, a program that provides users with unlimited access to an extensive e-learning library and how-to tutorials through a simple, annual subscription.

If you’re attending SAS Global Forum 2017, you’ll have the unique opportunity to get a first-hand glimpse of the latest SAS online training offerings. I recently asked SAS Director of Learning Design and Development Jim Farrell his thoughts on why it’s important for SAS users to get familiar with SAS online learning offerings:

Farrell said: “We know that many organizations today face an analytical skills gap and are challenged to grow the analytical skills of their staffs. At the same time there is high interest in analytical training from individuals who are looking to improve their skills and career opportunities. The common thread is that both companies and individuals have the same desire to secure quality analytical training in the most flexible, modern and easy-to-access way as possible. SAS e-Learning options provide all of that for anyone who’s interested in learning SAS.”

If you have a need to learn SAS in a modern, convenient way and you’re attending SAS Global Forum, don’t miss trying out a SAS e-Course on a laptop in The Learning Lab and getting more details about SAS e-Learning. Visit us in the Learn section of The Quad to learn more.
