It should be expected that activities in many spheres of business will soon be transferred to a virtual workspace. These trends form a demand for the training of specialists who are not only experts in their professional activities, but able to work effectively in a significantly different form of business.

Technical preparation for this process is an important issue which needs a proper solution, along with the psychological aspects of training for mental readiness.

To ensure a smooth digital transformation in non-IT industries, it`s professionals should find a way to adapt to the digital world. This can be done through specially designed courses and trainings of specific industries and provide accurate insight into the digital technologies and tools which can be applied in the area of professional knowledge.
