You always want to make sure that the training programs your attend match your career interests and aspirations, right? … so pay close attention to what I am about to say next.
Effectiveness of Traditional Class Room Training
Late last year I was mentoring, coaching and training a software development team. One of the members of the team had paid more than $6,000 (Six Thousand USD) for a class-room based training & certification program.
To fund the training which required an upfront, full payment, he raided his savings account and took on additional debt.
He would typically drive to the training vendor’s location 3 times a week, in the evenings and on weekends. He would then be assigned a computer and training manuals. Most of the times there was either no instructor present or there was no student to instructor interaction!
The good news is that he got his certification alright, after about 6 months of rigorous study. When I was hired to coach and mentor the team, his IT Director complained to me that that he was the least effective team member on the job in-spite of his training and certification!
To his credit, I would say that he was driven to learn and succeed … and he would have been doing better in his career, if someone had mentored him more effectively. Well, in spite of the fact that he was more certified and more trained (via the traditional class-room trainers), he was still the least paid and least regarded person in the office!
The problem is that some of the traditional class-room training and certification programs that abound … only help students pass their certifications … but that is not what managers really care about. Managers care more about your ability to solve business problems fast, effectively and efficiently than on the type of training or certifications you acquire!
Performance Enhancing Training
I interact with a lot of IT professionals who have the right degrees or professional certifications or attended expensive training and certification programs and still can’t perform on the job!
That is what my training focuses on … practical real-world skills … personal mentoring … access to a wealth of experience … relevant and comprehensive job-focused training curriculum! I only focus on what works and I drop all the garbage being taught in traditional class-room training that bears no relevance to your manager’s expectations and needs!
I only focus on “hot / in-demand skills” and I do not waste my time or yours chasing down the rabbit trails of obscure training courses, which only serve to bloat up the training curriculum but do not improve your on the job knowledge, skills and performance … need I say more?
