FDM has a track record of success providing tailored offerings to suit specific client needs. In collaboration with the client, standard FDM training programmes can be adapted to address specialised skill sets required by the client.
FDM can fully manage these tailored programmes, from targeted recruitment and selection of candidates through to training and deployment on-site.
This page highlights just a few examples of tailored programmes that have been provided for clients.
FDM’s DevOps engineers understand the importance of speed to market in software delivery and getting it right first time across the lifecycle of build, test, release and monitor.
All our software development consultants are trained in continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) and can be trained in a range of additional tools (e.g. Chef, Puppet etc) and languages (e.g. Python, Ruby) to support your code pipeline.
Test automation engineers reduce the overhead of testing by building automation frameworks to do the work. Having “Dev in Test” means testers can focus on more than just executing manual tests.
FDM’s software development consultants can be trained in test automation technologies such as Selenium WebDriver and behavioural driven development (BDD) using Cucumber as well as securing their industry standard certification in software testing through ISTQB/ISEB.
Robotic Process Automation
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) involves creating software as “digital workers” to handle a broad range of back office operations, freeing skilled human workers from data entry and other basic tasks. In the next decade RPA is predicted to move forward from simply replacing office processes to supporting actual decision making through increased use of AI, cognitive intelligence and machine learning.
FDM provides training approved by RPA software companies such as Blue Prism, UIPath and Thoughtonomy, supplementing our proven training in business and technology.
After completing an FDM programme such as Business Analysis or completing a significant part of the Software Development programme, FDM consultants transfer to a three week “boot camp” using the most appropriate RPA product to match the client need. Throughout the training consultants work on realistic projects designed by FDM and typically will complete an accreditation.
