Pluralsight adds hands-on learning opportunities for for Cybersecurity, IT Ops, and Software Development

Pluralsight, Inc., the technology workforce development company, is expanding Pluralsight Skills, adding new lab-based hands-on learning experiences for cybersecurity, IT ops, and software development professionals as well as new experiences designed to help technology learners prepare for the tech industry’s top certifications.

Hands-on learning is a critical component to any effective skills development platform and strategy, according to the vendor.

Knowledge retention and application from hands-on learning experiences is dramatically improved over alternative learning modalities, and the combination of both hands-on and on-demand skill development techniques gives enterprises the tools they need to effectively develop technology skills at scale.

“The most successful enterprise organizations have a structured approach to skill development that includes a combination of hands-on, on-demand, and instructor-led training, live or virtual. This expansion of hands-on learning capabilities enables our customers to more effectively develop their tech talent at scale and ensure that they have the skills inventory to complete their most pressing technology projects in an effective and cost efficient manner,” said Gary Eimerman, GM of skills, Pluralsight.

As enterprises work to tackle new technology advancements and ways of working following the onset of the 2020 pandemic, skills gaps have widened in critical technology areas such as cloud computing, data, cybersecurity, AI, and machine learning, according to the vendor.

With the introduction of these new labs, Pluralsight Skills now offers more than 900 lab-based hands-on learning experiences for technologists looking to close skills gaps and stay ahead of the rapid pace of change for today’s technologies.

These hands-on learning opportunities include:

  • 772 labs for cloud computing
  • 21 labs for software development
  • 63 labs for cybersecurity
  • 44 labs for IT ops

In addition to its expansion of hands-on learning experiences, Pluralsight is introducing a new tech certification landscape within Pluralsight Skills called the Certification Prep Center.

This new experience enables learners to survey more than 130 certification prep paths offered within Pluralsight Skills and get clear step-by-step guidance on how to develop the necessary skills to pass the certification exams.
