    I was so nervous going into this class as a complete novice. Within minutes, I felt at home. Both the instructor (especially the instructor) and the other classmates were warm, non-judgmental, and open. I felt energized as a person and informed as a performer. Needless to say, I have already signed up for the same class next week! 10 stars if I could! Thank you!
  • Python Developer Immersive

    Reviewed by David G. on 11/24/2019
    I loved the class a lot because of the fact that it was a week and able to compress all that information into it. I also liked the 10AM start, not too early. The 5pm end was a little late for my particular week that week, since I had things to do for about 3 days of the week and had to leave early. However, any week-long class will present that problem with trying to fit errands before or after the class. The teacher was very fast and he could type as fast as he could talk. I tried to keep up and coded along with him as he presented, which really helped with the hands on and understanding being able to actually see it run in front of me. This type of hands on also keeps me engaged versus just sitting there watching someone lecture. Sometimes I couldn't quite keep up, but all is good, I still got the main points and lots of information in a short time. The exercises were also good practice, but with me, it takes time and experience to be able to rattle off code with intuitive understanding, so I'm not worried about that yet, since with practice, I know it becomes second nature. Overall, I like the way Practical Programming teaches, and I'm thinking of taking more classes from there.

Discover the Best Professional Skills Classes Near Me

Are you a part of the workforce, or are you looking to get a job in the near future? Either way, you should know all about professional skills. Generally speaking, professional skills are defined as career competencies and abilities used in the workplace that are beneficial for nearly any job. For this reason, professional skills are a combination of hard skills (job-specific duties that can be trained) and soft skills (transferable traits like good work ethic, communication skills, and leadership). When used properly, professional skills can help you succeed in your job, no matter your field, age, or level of experience.

Why You Should Learn Professional Skills

Learning professional skills may help you relieve some of the stress that comes with work, because you will better understand how to be a good employee. While you might not think you would use professional skills during your free time, you probably will–good communication skills, for example, can be beneficial in just about any part of life. By learning professional skills, you can even help others because you will be able to do your job more efficiently and effectively. 

Once you learn the basics of professional skills, you will discover that there is a global community that is passionate about honing their professional skills. It might be a good idea to research local clubs, groups, events, and organizations where you can meet others that are interested in polishing their professional skills.

Lastly, your passion for professional skills will look excellent on your resume. Think of it like this: the more professional skills you can develop and acquire, the better your resume is going to look to potential employers. You may even be able to ask for a raise at your current job or a higher salary at a new one if you can prove that you know the professional skills you include on your resume.

5 Ways to Learn Professional Skills

The idea of learning professional skills may seem overwhelming at first, but it does not have to be difficult and you do not have to do it on your own. When you first start your journey into learning professional skills, it may be intimidating to try and figure out what the most important things to learn are and how you can hone your professional skills. Many people who are new to professional skills may get discouraged when they realize exactly how many professional skills there are to master, or when they do not do well with learning a skill the first time around. This is why in-person professional skills classes are the ideal way to learn: they give you an up close and personal demonstration of what professional skills are and how to take advantage of them, and your instructor can give you real-time feedback while answering your questions.

Live online professional skills classes are also a great way to learn professional skills without having to commute to a class. They are accessible to almost anyone, which is good because not everyone has an in-person professional skills class that is close to them. And even though they take place online, a live online professional skills class still features a live instructor who can answer your questions and give you assistance in real-time. This type of feedback is incredibly valuable and makes live online professional skills classes the next best option to learn professional skills.

Self-paced or on-demand professional skills classes, such as those found on YouTube, can also be a good option especially if you do not want to invest money in learning fashion right away. Learning professional skills will most likely not require you to purchase much in the way of materials. These self-paced or on-demand professional skills classes allow you to learn as quickly or as slowly as you want, and you can utilize them around your schedule rather than having to attend a class on a certain day, at a certain time. Professional skills classes like these are great for anyone with a busy schedule.

Learning about professional skills from someone you know, like a relative or friend, may be another option. This is largely dependent on your schedule as well as the schedule of the other person, and whether the professional skills they possess are similar to or different from what you want to learn. There are many different types of professional skills, and the kind that your friend or loved one is familiar with may not be the one you would like to learn. That being said, this can be an excellent way to learn professional skills while also allowing you to spend time in the company of someone you are close to.

There are professional skills groups that you could attend as a beginner, but be aware that many people in professional skills groups are looking for socialization and networking opportunities, not to teach someone else professional skills. The exception to that rule is if the group specifically states that they welcome beginners, or that someone in the group is looking to teach beginners.

In-Person Professional Skills Classes

If you would like to learn about professional skills in-person, CourseHorse can connect you with classes that will help you.

Virtual Professional Skills Classes 

Taking an online professional skills class might seem daunting at first, but like in-person classes, they have their pros and cons. One good thing about taking a virtual professional skills class is that you can attend it from anywhere. That means you can work on developing your professional skills in the comfort of your own home, in your backyard, or another quiet area. You also do not have to commute to a classroom, which saves both money and time. The biggest con about taking an online professional skills class is that you generally have to supply your own materials, but most of these classes do not require much more than your presence.

If you are interested in online professional skills classes, CourseHorse has options that will work for you. For example, Managing Personality & Behavioral Styles at Work is offered by Perception Insights. This class is designed to mitigate arguments and misunderstandings that occur in the workplace by educating you on different individual behavioral styles and how to help them behave harmoniously.

What Will I Need to Learn Professional Skills?

Generally, you will not need any materials to learn professional skills beyond your initial enrollment in a class. That being said, if for some reason a professional skills class required additional supplies, you would be given a list of what to buy by your instructor. You may want to bring something to take notes with to your class, such as a pad of paper and pen or a laptop. Those are items you most likely already own for other purposes.

Is it Difficult to Learn Professional Skills?

While learning good professional skills can be difficult, it is something that is accessible to anyone who is willing to commit the time and effort necessary to be successful. If you apply yourself to gaining knowledge of professional skills, you will most likely wind up being more effective at work, and you may even wind up getting a promotion or the job of your dreams.
