Why Should Companies Invest in a Python Training Program?

Why should companies invest in a Python Training Program long
It’s esti­mat­ed that in the next decade, hun­dreds of mil­lions of employ­ees will have to com­plete train­ing to keep up with large-scale mod­ern changes such as dig­i­ti­za­tion and automation.
And, with recruit­ing resources need­ed to hire a devel­op­er cost­ing at least $22,000, com­pa­nies are invest­ing in the busi­ness ben­e­fits of employ­ing peo­ple who under­stand Python dur­ing these times of tech advance­ment. There­fore, it comes as no sur­prise that now could be the per­fect time for your busi­ness to invest in a Python train­ing program. 

Python is now a top-choice lan­guage taught across aca­d­e­m­ic depart­ments, includ­ing eco­nom­ics, physics, and even fields that are tra­di­tion­al­ly less tech­ni­cal such as soci­ol­o­gy — grow­ing in pop­u­lar­i­ty as a skill that employ­ers are seek­ing out because of its appli­ca­tion across busi­ness func­tions. Addi­tion­al­ly, Python can be run across oper­at­ing sys­tems, adapts well to oth­er pro­gram­ming lan­guages, and there­fore has devel­oped an enor­mous user base. Because of its wide range of appli­ca­tions and abil­i­ty to scale to com­plex projects- while still being eas­i­er to under­stand with less nuance than many oth­er cod­ing lan­guages- Python is con­sid­ered a great choice for com­pa­nies hop­ing to expand their employ­ees’ cod­ing expertise. 

In a post-pan­dem­ic world, it is clear that human inter­ac­tion is valu­able to learn­ing and live instruc­tion makes a dif­fer­ence, espe­cial­ly for learn­ing cod­ing lan­guages where prob­lems faced by begin­ning pro­gram­mers can be hard to trou­bleshoot indi­vid­u­al­ly with only a down­loaded train­ing pro­gram. A cor­po­rate Python train­ing pro­gram, taught by a live instruc­tor can bring impor­tant skills to a company’s employ­ees, improv­ing pro­duc­tiv­i­ty, whether Python is active­ly used in work on a day-to-day basis or not. Learn­ing a cod­ing lan­guage encour­ages employ­ees to prob­lem solve in a way that may be out of their com­fort zone, advanc­ing their crit­i­cal think­ing skills. It can also help improve col­lab­o­ra­tion across busi­ness func­tions as employ­ees from one depart­ment that may not nec­es­sar­i­ly use Python dai­ly are still able to par­tic­i­pate and pro­vide feed­back in more tech­ni­cal con­ver­sa­tions with oth­er depart­ments. Addi­tion­al­ly, as dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tions become more com­mon­place in cor­po­ra­tions, hav­ing employ­ees with a back­ground in Python can improve over­all adop­tion rate because of greater under­stand­ing of the impor­tance of infor­ma­tion shar­ing, as exem­pli­fied in open-source. 

Hav­ing a live instruc­tor to lead a cor­po­rate Python train­ing pro­gram can pro­vide many ben­e­fits for these cours­es com­pared to more down­load­able, asyn­chro­nous options. Live instruc­tors are a high­ly valu­able resource with help­ful capa­bil­i­ties beyond what tools avail­able on the inter­net can pro­vide. For one, hav­ing an instruc­tor for a train­ing pro­gram gives new cod­ing stu­dents an oppor­tu­ni­ty to ask ques­tions spe­cif­ic to their indi­vid­ual issues and receive feed­back and answers in real-time. Live instruc­tors can assess how the employ­ee is com­pre­hend­ing learn­ing mate­ri­als to keep every­one with­in the train­ing pro­gram on track, which is espe­cial­ly impor­tant for cod­ing cours­es where lack of under­stand­ing can stop pro­gres­sion until any mis­un­der­stand­ing is resolved. Addi­tion­al­ly, hav­ing employ­ees learn with a live instruc­tor as a cohort enables them to more deeply under­stand the train­ing program’s con­tent through col­lab­o­ra­tion and fos­ter­ing a com­mu­ni­ty with­in the company. 

Momentum’s live instruc­tion and cus­tomized cours­es can help your com­pa­ny reach the next lev­el by upskilling employ­ees across depart­ments with the tech skills that are high­ly valu­able in busi­ness today. Learn more about our bespoke cor­po­rate train­ing offer­ings today.
