There is such a wealth of information out there that it can be overwhelming to someone trying to figure out what they need to learn.
I mean, when you look in your local bookstore you will see a huge section of books to help, but what you won’t find is the insider information that teaches you exactly the most profitable techniques or what you absolutely must know.
You also won’t find any resources that will give you the inside information about what you need to know so that you stand out from the crowd.
STOP, if you’re about to register for our training and read this post now because we are only interested in the right type of participants for our online bootcamp courses.
In many ways, we are not like traditional classroom classes or most training schools.
For example, we focus more on experiential learning in the sense that we want you to perform well on the job and not just have a certificate that you can show-off on your resume.
This post is written for professionals looking for ways to cope with conflicting or demanding work and life commitments.
How to cope with an ever increasing workload? Tech workers are under increasing pressure to get more work done during office hours, vacation time, weekend time or even away from the office at home.
How to keep up with the demands of our careers? And IT professionals are worrying about how they can learn new technologies or sharpen their current skills because of the constantly changing face of technology.
One of the challenges of self teaching, self learning, CBT courses or traditional class room training is the lack of personalized, one on one performance review or feedback.
Training courses where both instructors and trainees can post or respond to questions are few and far in between.
This is the case even when you pay thousands of dollars for traditional class room training!
This is because training providers typically have an in-flexible curriculum and a set amount of training time to communicate their message!
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.
