    Best hard skill you've learned / class you've taken?

    hey fellas - I'm in commercial insurance (cyber), middle mgmt position, decent job but feel like I'm stagnating. Most of my day to day is repetitive transactional deals that don't require much creativity or skill once you're reached a certain level of competency.

    Our company offers $5k a year (and more if you make a case for how it will reasonably effect your performance) towards third party training/classes. Has anyone taken anything here, either through a university or otherwise, that they felt really benefited them? Something they've found they use day to day? I need to take my development into my own hands. Any recommendations?

    Thx!

    Different skills will benefit different people.

    I've gotten the most mileage from my classes that are related to what I do and I've gotten virtually no benefit from classes not related to what I do. I work with data so basically all the technical classes related to data I use on a regular basis and everything else I haven't really used. I have done a ****load of programming classes and I barely ever touch anything outside of SQL from day to day. I learned a ton of AI/ML and most companies don't touch it yet so that has been a waste so far but probably won't be in 5-10 years.

    Sorry that's probably not much help. I would say learn a technical skill that is relevant to what you're doing and learn it specific to a technology that is in use right now where you are. Is it possible they are using a data visualization platform like Tableau, Power BI, or something else? You could learn that, would be interesting ( I am biased obviously )

    Advanced Combative Carbine, Midrange: https://www.ridgelineshooting.com/st...e_Carbine.html

    Teaches how to employ a rifle from the muzzle to 500 yds in compromised shooting positions for accuracy and speed.

    It was a lot more affordable when ammo was $300/1k for 5.56 but still a great class.
    What part of "Shall Not Be Infringed" are you having trouble with?
