Jira certification and official courses

Good morning.

My role in an new organisation I am working for is to the PM for all projects. Thus I am responsible for the delivery and implementation of all our agile projects that will be going forward. We are a small team that is growing ... but Ive got some critical projects that are coming with big clients and I have to deliver.

Ive opted to switch to JIRA because MS  Project is just not suitable for agile software projects. But I need to get to grasps with the tool very quickly. 

My functions will be both as a PM on JIRA and as a Administrator for the tool for the organisation. I would like to know if the following courses from the JIRA University are worth it:

  1. JIRA Admin Part 1: Project Configuration
  2. JIRA Admin Part 2: User Management and Schemes

I think these are the two courses I need in the immediate to get me going in the tool. I would appreciate an opinion on somehow has done them before and if I would always have access to the video once I have purchased it for future reference.

Thank you.

Yes, you're right, those two are a good start, and other courses on there can help you with other subjects.

In the long run, you might want to keep an eye on https://www.atlassian.com/university/certification - that's for the formal certifications Atlassian will be producing in June.

Thank you.

I think I will actually go for that certification.
