Hi SnowGlobe,

today I want to share with you all the Training and Learning options we offer. I think this is a very relevant topic, as a continuous study and a deeper knowledge are always necessary to get the most from everything and, in this case, from Snow Software applications.

We have a very skilled team that works to offer and tailor training options. Below I've summarized them, but feel free to contact your dedicated Snow Account Manager in case you need more information about what we can offer.

 

Global Training

Official Snow product training will help you to get the most out of Snow solutions. Training is aimed at both beginners and SAM professionals. Ideally, you should start the training program with the Snow Inventory Administrator or the SLM User Training - depending on your individual area of responsibility.

 

Available Courses:

• Snow Inventory Administrator (SIA 1-day course)
• Snow Licence Manager User (SLMU 2- day course)
• Snow Licence Manager Advanced User (SLMAU 1-day course)
• Snow Automatic Platform Administrator (SAPA 1-day course)
• Snow Optimizer for SAP Software – available only in Hamburg.
• Snow Device Manager Administrator SDMA – currently available only in Sweden or bespoke

 

All courses are certified, and a short exam is taken at the end of each course. You can find our scheduled courses here: https://www.snowsoftware.com/int/resources/training 

 

Language Options

The default language for our training is English. However, courses are offered in German from our Stuttgart and Hamburg hubs. French and Italian courses are also delivered from our location sites in Paris and Milan.

 

Training Hubs

We have 4 main training hubs all of which offer a dedicated training room. Except Hamburg one, the other facilities include laptops for delegate use.

 

  • Bracknell, UK
  • Stuttgart, Germany
  • Hamburg, Germany
  • Solna, Sweden

On-Premise Training

You may have several staff members who require training and deem it easier to have trainers visit your premises. This can be arranged for a maximum of 10 delegates and either a standard course delivered or something more tailored to specific needs. (Please contact your Account Manager to ask for more information or request it)

 

How to book onto a classroom training course. 

You can book onto a training course selecting the desired one/s via the Snow website: Training.

This prompts a request and your place will be confirmed once availability has been checked and booking authorized.

 

Alternatively, you can liaise with your Account Manager to request a place.

 

Subscriptions

A good value for money option is to purchase a subscription. We have 2 options available that can allow a group of users to enroll onto an unlimited number of courses at the training hub. Please contact your Snow Account Manager to know more about the details of this offer.

 

Online Learning (Partners only)

The Snow Academy is currently only available to Partners. 

A Snow Identity will provide you with direct access to the Snow Academy, Snow Support Portal as well as the Snow Globe Community. If you already have a Snow Identity, simply login via the dedicated link using the ‘login with Single Sign On’ button and begin your learning program. If you haven’t got a Snow Identity you can self-register here: Register for Snow Identity.

 

Note: Of course our Training team is working to expand the current offer, to extend the courses to more recipients and include always up to date topics. 

 

I hope this post is helpful to know more about the available options. Feel free to contact us if you have more questions about it!
