​​​​​With our free Hays Certified technology training programme, we aim to help technology professionals qualify for those contracts which will earn them more.

Why offer free training?

We’re your lifetime career partner, helping you develop your skills so that you can pursue bigger and better contracts. We offer training to help you develop your career and reach your goals, but also to ensure you gain a competitive edge to thrive in today’s fast-paced market. This helps us find you the best contracts and makes certain that organisations always have the most skilled workers available.

Once you’ve completed a course, you’ll receive an exclusive Hays Certified accreditation validated by the relevant certification body and when we send your details to employers, we’ll prioritise your application for contracts that match your new skills and career ambitions.

What’s the period of exclusivity?

When you sign up for the Hays Certified technology training programme, you agree to give us five days of exclusivity from the time of your course completion, or your current contract’s end date, where we will help you lock down a new contract.

An exclusive partnership with your career consultant is the most effective way to manage and develop your career. Employers prefer exclusive candidates, so working with us alone can help you get better contracts, with better day rates. If you wish to continue an exclusive partnership beyond the five-day minimum, just let your consultant know.

What does the training involve?

Hays Certified training aggregates modules from top training providers and provides certification from relevant accreditation bodies. Our wide range of courses allow you to rapidly upskill in the following areas:

  • Data science
  • Agile project management
  • Cloud engineering
  • Cyber security

Training courses range from 2-15 hours to complete, and consist of video and interactive content interspersed with quizzes to cement your knowledge of the subject matter. Many of our courses will also help prepare you for further formal exams or certification assessments. Having undertaken any of our training courses, you will have the skills and confidence to apply for in-demand and big-reward contracts, and fulfil your professional ambitions.
