SkillStorm Partners With Salesforce’s Trailhead Academy to Expand Access to Digital Skills Training

SkillStorm

SkillStorm is now a Salesforce Authorized Training Provider (ATP).

The Salesforce ATP program is powered by Trailhead Academy, which empowers individuals and businesses to build and validate in-demand digital skills with expert-led learning programs, role-based credentials, and workforce development strategies designed to fuel net-new talent.

By 2025, the demand for digital skills will rise by more than 50%. In a recent study, however, Salesforce uncovered that the global workforce feels they lack the proper digital skills to prepare them for the future. Nearly three out of four study respondents say they aren’t equipped with the resources needed to learn the digital skills they need to succeed in the current and future workforce.
