The Technology Leadership Academy (TLA) is a technology learning center for cloud sellers and buyers, powered by technology “teachers” from RapidScale, a Cox Business company. The overall purpose of the academy is to educate sales leaders and technology buyers on how to most ethically and effectively sell and procure cloud technology in today’s rapidly changing environment. The training material is focused on technology of all types, not just those of RapidScale and/or Cox Business.
Features and Benefits of the TLA
Managers of Salespeople and Learners
Team Managers can create accounts within the TLA and assign technology certifications to their team members. They can track progress and send reminders directly from their TLA dashboard.
There are currently three self-paced training certifications offered in the TLA. They are all taught by experienced cloud engineers, cloud consultants, product managers and/or executives.
- Desktop as a Service (DaaS) Sales Black Belt Certification
- Cloud Selling Foundations Black Belt Certification
- Business Productivity Software (Office 365) Sales Black Belt Certification
Certifications are composed of short video trainings (3-5 minutes each), PDF summaries of each video, as well as exams to ensure comprehension. Those who complete a certification are provided a TLA certification seal which can be utilized on a website, business card or email signature, showing customers that graduates have taken the time to learn and excel in technology.
TLA sales attendees have access to over 50 time-tested sales tools and assets including case studies, email marketing templates, co-brandable collateral, cloud assessments, training webinars, training videos, co-brandable vertical slicks, and more.
Those interested in learning cloud technologies in more of an a-la-carte format can learn from any of the five Schools, where our technology partners provide training materials for sellers and buyers. The materials are broken out by beginner resources, benefits and features, case studies, “how to sell” and technical overviews.
