The Bedford Academy

Interactive and collaborative Anaplan model building courses

Our dedicated Anaplan training team are driven by the opportunity to empower our valued network of customers to get the absolute most from the Anaplan platform by becoming highly skilled certified model builders within their organisations.

Big or small, your business will undoubtedly achieve better results in less time by investing in your people, enabling them to become the real owners of the Anaplan ecosystem. Good preparation is key to the success of any project and we believe that having the skills to develop on the platform in-house sets you on that journey to a successful implementation and beyond.

We take no short-cuts at Bedford Consulting, our training is delivered by the UK’s most seasoned Anaplanners who will have built and delivered hundreds of Anaplan models over many years – we are Anaplan people, who are passionate about the product and nothing else.

Our Training:

All of our training courses are run in-house by Bedford people, we have a dedicated classroom in our London office to host trainee’s and give them the best experience possible – away from the day to day distractions that we find plague other traditional delivery methods. We also offer delivery of a selection of our courses remotely via our live online portal so that you can complete your certifications from any site. Regardless of where you're located, you will live and breathe Anaplan for the duration of your time with us.

We also provide all the technology and materials to complete the course so all you need to do is turn up and be ready to start your journey as an Anaplanner.

Our training is designed to be an interactive two-way experience, it’s likely you will come to the course already looking ahead to the project that lies ahead and we encourage that thought. We want you to learn from our experience, not just from course notes or materials. We want you to ask questions, probe, dig and make mistakes because the result will be an enabled customer who is far better equipped to help deliver a successful project.

Who is it for?

We strongly encourage anyone who will be involved in the project team to complete the first stage of the Anaplan Learning Path at a minimum (Level 1). This includes SME’s, project managers, platform owners and of course all designated model builders.

The more advanced courses on the Learning Path (Level 2 and beyond) are designed to up-skill your people to Certified Model Builder and Solutions Architect level, enabling them to run a project end to end, become platform advocates, technical experts and eventually Master Anaplanners. It should be the goal of every organisation to have at least one person on the advanced learning path.

“The trainer was engaging and entertaining. The course was dynamic and the trainer was quick to identify the needs of everyone in the room.”
