Thinking About A Career In IT But Don’t Know Where To Start Or Get Training?
For those who know me, I always try to have an even temperament with an ‘always on’ positive attitude. There’s enough negativity in the world, and it won’t get any help from me. That being said, TODAY, I’m really excited and find it hard to keep this in. Here’s why. For anyone looking to get IT training to start their career, they’ve got a wonderful opportunity from PluralSight.com! Pluralsight‘s online IT training platform provides over 5,000 courses online for just $29.95 a month, or $299 a year. That is an AMAZING VALUE! Seriously, that’s amazing. I know what I’m talking about because I hold one of the IT credentials in one of the courses they are providing online – the CompTIA Security+.
Pluralsight Is An Established Company With A Rock Solid Platform
Even though they are not a new startup, Pluralsight has been around for a long time – over ten years actually. They’ve been at work perfecting their platform, their content and the quality of their course offerings. Recently, they went public with their IPO. Alot of people may not have been familiar with PluralSight before their successful public offering. But, the IPO wasn’t where they won me over.
I became a believer when I visited their website and looked for a course that I actually teach in a real physical classroom. If you knew what I’m paid to teach this class at schools and companies, you’d understand how much of a bargain this really is. It’s not uncommon to charge students over $3,000 for their Security+ course and exam preparation. Pluralsight has them all beat hands down.
Access To Online Training Is Convenient
Rather than pay for a traditional academic environment for just one semester in just ONE IT course, you could for an ENTIRE YEAR of online IT training from Pluralsight. As a bonus, you would have access 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year in ANY IT SUBJECT YOU CHOOSE! Wow!
This is HUGE! But don’t take my word for it. Check out their website and see for yourself. They are teaching courses that help you obtain knowledge required to secure today’s most in-demand jobs.
IT Security Skills In Demand – Pluralsight Helps

These vacancies are expected to balloon to over 3,500,000 positions which will need to be filled by 2021, just 3 years from now!
Smart companies are looking for cost effective but measurable ways to train existing IT talent. Pluralsight helps meet this need. I can vouch for the quality of their offering. Even if you have no desire to get on-line training, or you already have an established career, Pluralsight can help. Furthermore, giving the gift of a Pluralsight IT subscription could be the best GIFT you could give someone. It’s a great gift idea for graduation season, christmas, birthday, father’s day, or other holiday.
