With CPX 2020 behind us, it is now clearer than ever that Anaplan is going to be a major force in the technology industry for years to come. On the flip side, technologies such as Hyperion, TM1, and others are beginning to lose their market share and are leaving many IT workers looking for new positions. Whether you are someone new to the IT space looking to start a career in Anaplan or one of those individuals in the industry looking to transition to the Anaplan platform, we at Akili can help you.

Akili is an Anaplan Gold Partner with over 100 successful Anaplan implementations completed. As Anaplan’s most trusted training partner, Akili houses the most certified instructors and courses taught of any other partner.

Akili offers the complete roadmap of instructor-led courses to help you get the Certified Model Builder certification. This certification is often the bare minimum requirement that recruiters are given when looking to staff Anaplan positions, and we at Akili provide the most efficient, cost-effective means of completing the requirements for it.

You will start with the Level 1 Model Building course, which will introduce you to the Anaplan platform. This course is designed to be an introductory-level course that focuses on the building blocks of Anaplan. You will learn about the key components of the Anaplan system, as well as how to write some of the most commonly used formulas in the system. When you have completed this course, the next step is to take The Anaplan Way course and the Level 2 Model Building Course. The Anaplan Way is designed to focus more on the project planning side of Anaplan, meaning that it is more of an informational course and less hands-on. You will learn about the Agile methodology and how to best approach working with the Anaplan platform. The Level 2 Model Building course will build upon the foundational knowledge taught in Level 1 and will teach you about Connected Planning. You will also learn more complex Anaplan formulas and other useful technical skills that will take your model building capabilities to the next level.
