CPD accredited points, graded assessments, discussions with expert coaches about real-world scenarios and membership in the Rolls-Royce Agile community are part of a new optional paid-for package. The course will be accessed via leading training partner edX, and the first 100 verified certificate learners can get a 20% discount on the paid-for package using the code: “R2DLAGILE20”.

The course content includes video tutorials, interviews, multiple assessments and case studies, while the paid-for learning experience includes accreditation, access to expert coaches, graded assessments and networking opportunities. In some countries, participants can seek subsidies from professional learning programmes, or have the course paid for entirely by their employers.

Manisha Mistry, head of digital culture at Rolls-Royce, said: “Agile skills have been incredibly popular and people have told us that they want more content that is practically applicable in their industry settings. This course is designed for Agile practitioners by Agile practitioners and the timing means participants could start 2021 fully certified as agile trained and ready to go.

“This course builds on our experience of applying agile skills as a key part of Rolls-Royce’s mission to be the world’s leading industrial technology company. We think this course can really help people and businesses who want to develop a digital culture and an agile mindset to improve their opportunities.”
