According to IDC, IT staff trained on Red Hat technology get up to speed faster on projects and can more easily apply their knowledge. The end results are higher performance and cost-saving efficiencies. Assessing your own skill set and identifying areas for growth is essential to stay ahead in the fast-paced technology industry. With numerous courses available, determining the most suitable one for you or your team can be challenging - this is where Red Hat's Skills Assessment tool comes in.

As part of a commitment to help customers and partners continue to upskill, Red Hat has launched the second generation of its free, personalized skill assessment tool tailored to each user's skill set and experience level. With this update, Red Hat has enhanced the user experience, reporting capabilities and personalization of assessment results. The tool's improved features make it even more beneficial for users seeking to bolster their performance and efficiency.

There are two types of assessments offered – individual and team. Individual assessments allow users to evaluate their current skill level related to the Red Hat products they are using, their job roles, or the IT challenges they are facing. Through a series of questions, the tool will compare the user's experience level to the required prerequisites for the relevant courses and determine the best place to get started. Team assessments identify skill gaps and training opportunities for teams and help managers gauge their team's areas of expertise.

The enhanced reporting output provides more comprehensive reports for end-users and managers, helping them better understand their strengths and weaknesses in relation to Red Hat technology. This, in turn, facilitates more informed discussions around training and development needs.

For managers in charge of a team, using the skills assessment tool is straightforward - like being able to add trainees individually or through a bulk upload feature. Once the team is established in the system, managers can evaluate their collective knowledge, identify areas for improvement and receive tailored recommendations for a suitable starting point in their learning journey. Managers can assign courses to their team members through the same methods of individual or bulk upload, streamlining the process and providing a more effective training experience.

Completing a skills assessment is a valuable resource for anyone looking to develop their skills in Red Hat technology. Whether you're interested in diving deeper into Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat OpenShift, Red Hat Ansible Application Platform or any of our other technologies, you can find the best place to start by completing a free Red Hat Skills Assessment today.
