Atlassian training sized to fit your needs

Since I wrote Atlassian training is not one-size-fits-all Atlassian University has released a lot of great training material.

Remember, just as the Atlassian toolset is highly configurable to suit your way of working, Atlassian training is not one-size-fits-all either.

Free training options

The free training catalog has been has been extended beyond Bitbucket and Jira Server. The platform indicator shows whether a course is available for Data Center/Server or Cloud.

The self-paced tutorials are listed in the sub-topics:

  • Atlassian Cloud 101 - focused on Confluence, Jira Service Management, and Jira Software including Advanced Roadmaps, Next-Gen projects, and Jira Reporting.
  • Free tutorials - covering a range of commonly used Jira apps along with using Opsgenie on mobile and Git.
  • Free skillbuilders - these are a great way to extend your knowledge and come with the option to sit an online-proctored quiz to earn a skills badge.

 You can also check out the Community training video library - a growing list of short videos. Many of these videos are the same content as self-paced tutorials just broken down into a friendlier length. These videos and more can be accessed on Atlassian Product Tutorials YouTube playlists.

Hands-on courses

Sometimes you want more out of training than just watching videos. Atlassian has a range of courses that include access to a lab environment along with practise exercises to enhance the training materials. Hands-on courses are available in a range of delivery methods.

On-demand courses come with access to the recordings and demos for 30 days. During that time you have access to an optional hands-on virtual lab (though Data Center/Server courses have a timer with a limit of 24 hours total time spent in the lab over the 30 days).

To up-skill as a team you can have virtual or onsite training with an Atlassian Authorised Instructor. This interactive experience including access to the hands-on virtual lab relevant to your platform and can be organised through Atlassian or directly with one of the 50 Atlassian Training Partners available worldwide

You can also contact your local Atlassian Training Partner for dates of any upcoming public courses. This month we (TechTime) are launching #SkillShareAotearoa, sharing our Jira skills through a series of public Atlassian training courses. Our aim is to create a culture of Skill Sharing within New Zealand, creating engaging opportunities to kōrero (talk) with Atlassian experts and boost Jira skills.
