Dice Launches Dice Learning, Specialized Search Engine for Tech Training and Certification

NEW YORK, July 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Dice, the leading career website for technology and engineering professionals, today launched Dice Learning (dicelearning.com) -- a service for technology professionals to easily obtain valuable technical training and certifications needed to advance their careers. Dice Learning provides a powerful search engine offering access to over 50,000 training programs across major technology skill areas including materials from technology stalwarts such as IBM and Sun Microsystems Learning Services, and pre-screened third-party training providers authorized by vendors to develop and teach courses on their technologies.

"Traditionally, finding the right training and certification is hit or miss, leaving tech professionals with more work to identify the right courses and providers," said Tom Silver, Senior Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer, Dice. "Dice Learning cuts through the myriad of training offerings to give tech professionals direct and easy access to what in our experience are the best courses and learning materials available."

Dice Learning includes self-paced and instructor-led classes, certification tracks, bootcamps, books, videos, and seminars. Training materials are available through partners who were selected based on their reputation, scope of services, number of locations for training centers, authorizations by hardware and software providers, and the quality of training curriculum. The screening process removes the burden from technology professionals to evaluate the efficacy of different offerings.

Additionally, Dice Learning matches required skills from thousands of Dice.com job postings with training materials necessary to build those skills. The breadth of learning methods combined with Dice Learning's optimized search engine allows technology professionals to find training based on their preferred method of study in one search, as well as help them further their careers.

Courses offered by Dice preferred providers come with a money back guarantee. If an individual fails to pass the certification exam related to the purchased course in the second try, the individual will be refunded the entire cost of the courseware, class, or bootcamp for that exam. See learning.dice.com/discounts.php for details.
