Discover the Best Professional Skills Classes Online

If you are someone who works or you will be headed into the workforce soon, you should know about professional skills and why they are important. The general definition of a professional skill is a competency or ability that you use in the workplace that would be beneficial at 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). Professional skills can help you succeed in your job, regardless of factors such as your field, age, or level of experience.

Why You Should Learn Professional Skills Online

Learning professional skills online can potentially be a source of stress relief, since you will better understand how to be a good employee. You may believe that you would not use your professional skills during your free time, but that is most likely not true since there are many aspects of professional skills that can be transferred to your personal life. And remember that learning professional skills online will help you help others, since you will be able to do your job more efficiently and effectively. 

Once you have a basic understanding of professional skills, you will learn 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 newfound professional skills will look amazing on your resume. The more professional skills you are able to add to your toolkit, the more likely it is that hiring managers are going to be interested in bringing you into the fold. 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.

Virtual Professional Skills Classes 

While you might be intimidated by the idea of taking an online professional skills class at first, it is good to remember that they have their pros and cons, just like in-person classes. 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. Project Management for Administrative Professionals is an American Management Association offering that is designed to help executive secretaries, administrative assistants, office managers, and more give their best at work through exceptional project management skills. You will learn how to juggle the many responsibilities that come with project management throughout this three session course. How to be an Ally is another American Management Association course that will educate you about issues surrounding inclusivity. You will learn how to find common ground with others and actively support individuals from different groups, which will help your organization’s diversity and inclusion program thrive.

Coaching from a Distance from the American Management Association is a class for managers who cannot be face to face with their team. This unique offering will help you develop coaching skills that can be used with your fellow professionals through virtual communication. The American Management Association also offers Taking On Greater Responsibility will teach you what you need to know to step up to the plate and lead while working on a team and juggling new assignments. You will acquire new skills and prepare to make a positive difference at work, all while getting ready to grow as an employee.

Online vs. In-Person Professional Skills Classes

The main difference between an online professional skills class and an in-person professional skills class is that you are not in the same room as your instructor or your classmates when you take an online communication skills course. That being said, you should still get instructor feedback which will help guide you to adding to your professional skills. Always remember that if there are any required materials, you are most likely going to have to purchase them yourself if you take an online class, whereas they may be supplied for you when you take an in-person class. If the materials are not supplied for you, your instructor should provide you with a list of items that you need to purchase.

Can I Learn Professional Skills for Free Online?

Yes, you can get started with learning professional skills by watching free videos, which can be found on sites such as YouTube. Bear in mind that feedback from a qualified instructor helps most people learn quickly and easily. If you want to further your professional skills, you should strongly consider taking a paid online professional skills class.
