Workday offers various training through the Learning Management System, such as On-Demand Education as well as in-classroom. The online training is professionally done and are high quality videos; some include an automated tutor, while others are with a Workday Trainer going through the system and presentations. This is definitely valuable in the very beginning of the project where Subject Matter Experts can learn the foundation of Workday. It is a great way for remote users to understand the basics of the system and is valuable to refer to throughout the full life cycle of the implementation. Workday also provides informative videos that contain pertinent information for upcoming updates.

Personally, I have taken all forms of training and consider it to be very beneficial. The only concern that I receive from customers is the price and cost of travel.

I have done for report writing and mass imports (EIBs). They give materials and you run through examples, i.e. you don’t just watch them do tasks, so that is helpful. Training is expensive – a single reporting writing class is $600 per person for virtual training.

• In-person training. WD was not very upfront about cost of training. It is quite expensive (had to travel to either Chicago or California, on top of training cost) and we could only afford to send one person (me) to get basic training. Basics were somewhat helpful, but could have been better. She got bits and pieces, but felt that a sold week of more rigorous, systematic training would have been better.

There are 11 different courses. They have on-demand training one hour sessions and host half day training sessions – e.g. report writing split across 2 half days, where you go into a classroom online instructor led. The online stuff is all provided by Workday.
