Level up your skills with our online IT training

The evolution of technology is nothing new. Some of us may remember the ’20 goto 10’ days of the BBC Micro, while others will have been tablet-toting toddlers, weaned in the digital age. Whatever your starting point, one thing is certain: the pace of change will only increase. Keeping your knowledge and skills updated on a regular basis is crucial if you don’t want to fall behind.

Online IT training from The Professional Alternative is your partner on the roller-coaster ride of technological evolution. We have information, insider know-how and top tips to support you as you climb through the ups, and provide the momentum needed to sweep you through the downs.

What’s included in our online IT training

We make online IT training fun, with interactive tutorials guaranteed to keep you engaged. Multimedia training materials, including videos, animations, podcasts and more, ensure that even the driest of subjects are accessible and easy to digest.

As with all our content, our online IT training meets the requirements of the regulators, including the ICAEW, ACCA and the SRA, and everything you access on our site is fully tracked and recorded to make your year-end CPD reporting an absolute breeze.

Management system user guides

Practice management systems (PMS), document management systems (DMS), client relationship management systems (CRMS), case management systems (CMS) – we offer down-to-earth guides for all the management systems you need to know. The perfect entry point for those starting out, they also make excellent cheat sheets for anyone who just needs a quick refresher.

Online collaboration

In a world where hybrid is the norm, with teams working across the country (and around the world), being able to optimise the collaboration tools at your fingertips makes all the difference. Our detailed guides show you how – from banishing time zone slip-ups to getting more done in fewer hours.

Implementation guides

Anyone who has ever been involved in the roll-out of a new IT system will know that the road to technological nirvana is filled with “but we’ve always done it this way” potholes, “this will never work” cul-de-sacs, and “everything was fine the way it was” diversions. Which is why the implementation guides in our online IT training exist. They’ll help you avoid the usual speed bumps and put you on the fast track to success.

Introduction to AI

Artificial Intelligence is the hottest tech topic in recent years as we take giant leaps towards the future. But it opens up a lot of questions. What are its strengths and weaknesses? Can we trust it? Is ChatGPT trying to steal my job? Will the robots rise up and take over the planet? Cutting through the hype and hysteria, we present you with the cold, hard facts, along with plenty of ‘dos and don’ts’, and a healthy sprinkling of possibilities to fire your imagination for the days, months and years to come.

Website design and SEO

What makes a good website? How can you get to the top spot on Google? If you’re reading this, wishing you had a site this fabulous, the good news is our online IT training has a section dedicated to designing web pages that will truly stand out. We spill all the beans (front and backend), giving you invaluable insights into SEO, web design and keyword research.

Cyber security

And finally… Because any chain is only as strong as its weakest link, we have a full suite of content dedicated to cyber security. Created to complement our cyber security eLearning, it will keep you, and your teams, safe online.
