I’ve mentioned in previous posts, numerous times the importance of upgrading your skills. In fact, it has never been more important to upgrade your technical computer skills than it is today. The reason is that, with the recession, employers are looking for more value in their employees. Employers are looking for employees who are multi-skilled and who have enough know-how to wear many hats within the company. Basically, hiring company’s want people who can do as many things as possible so that they can keep their staff numbers down in order to keep within a predefined budget.
The problem facing many people in the IT industry today is finding the time to upgrade these skills. It’s easy for an employer to demand that you be a multi-faceted and skilled individual, but let’s face it, it’s not that easy to both find the time and money to upgrade your IT skills. That is why it is so important for those of us looking to upgrade our skills to find avenues that are both within our budgets and fit the within the boundaries of our lives. That means that training needs to be flexible and be there to server us, not the other way around. The problem with traditional education is that it just is not flexible or affordable. Often, students attending the traditional institutions are also forced to learn subjects that are either impractical or for the most part useless. That is why employees looking to upgrade their skills need a practical solution to their skills upgrading needs. Today, many IT professionals are choosing enterprise cbt training to help them achieve their goal. CBT training, which is mostly DVD based, allows IT professionals to learn a new skill on their own time and within a reasonable budget. That means learning within a spectrum that is acceptable for you and that fits into your life.
In essence, IT professionals are no longer relying on traditional education to help them achieve their skills upgrade, but are now turning to DVD and Online learning, such as CBT training. This is a very important step in helping us achieve our goals and therefore staying employed.
