Has any self paced training material been made available for Jira Align?

It would be very helpful.

Funny you should ask that.  We are finalizing our first self-paced Jira Align course right now.  Jira Align - Program Essentials should be released sometime in early July.  Thanks for your interest.

Would be very interested in that as well Jay - concern is there is so much topics (based on user role/and of course the Admin function as well)  - This sounds encouraging., as there are many views in the system  - if the training is to be self-paced it should allow a user to work through Jira Align -   We started a Confluence page trying in our APMO to share with Users (gets big fast). Thx

@Rob Horan do you have "Training Simulations" turned on in your Jira Align instance?  These are more snippets of functionality, many customers have found them valuable on learning some key functionality. 

As Jay mentioned, we are excited about the upcoming self-paced Jira Align training that will be available soon.  

I second this

We have a lab in the new course to explore the Training Simulations as well.  The Training Simulations have a lot of useful content to help you be successful in your agile at scale approach and use of Jira Align.  The lab image for this course has them turned on so you can explore them.

@Tom O_Connor- I currently don't have access to an instance of Align, but i have been asked about training options. Thanks!

  This is what was posted by Atlassian in December "The Jira Align Team is currently working with Atlassian U to develop a series of both Online and Instructor Lead/Publicly available classes. Unfortunately, we do not yet have a date for general availability, but I'm sure there will be a boisterous market announcement, as these are ready."  Unfortunately I believe that this is still the case.  Remote Summit there was some presentations on Align but other than that I have not seen or been able to find any training.

We did have a Jira Align course that was slated for Atlassian Summit 2020.  Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, Atlassian Summit 2020 Las Vegas was canceled and the presenter portion of the conference was presented virtually.  The pre-conference training sessions were canceled.  This is when the Jira Align course would have been taught.
