Companies Should Explore Various Sources Of It Training

Aug 15, 2008
IT training can be deemed as a very good investment among companies and business which basically rely on information technology for their operations. Without IT training, their employees will suffer from inefficiency. They will be unproductive and unsatisfied with their jobs. Moreover, the lack of adequate IT training may lead to interruptions and delays in business operations, wasted monetary resource spent on the IT equipment, and minimal utilization of the IT tools and applications.

As apparent as it may seem, IT training is an essential part of ensuring the productivity of a company. In acquiring IT training for the employees, companies are faced with three main source options. These options are discussed as follows:

Internal source of training

This means that the HR or the administration will ask an expert employee or employees in the company to implement and conduct the training. This may be the supervisors themselves or the IT administrators and personnel. The experienced personnel will then be responsible for preparing the materials for the IT training- from the presentation tools to the course materials.

Among the benefits of this type of source is the fact that it saves on the deemed expenses for the otherwise professional training. It also offers a more personal training for the attendees as the trainers will be their fellow workers. However, the downfall of this type is the fact that these trainings may be considered substandard as compared to the other official IT trainings which offer certifications. Moreover, the absence of the requested trainers in performing their supposed work tasks and operations may result to problems with the business processes.

Public courses

This source of IT training may be in the form of seminars and workshops delivered by IT schools or by professional IT training providers. These courses are conducted in specific training areas and they provide their attendees with both lectures and hands-on experience with IT tools and equipment. Note that since this is a public course, attendees of this training will include other individuals from other companies.

Most of the time, such type of training is applicable when there are only a few employees need the IT training. Most companies opt for such training choice when they need to update their IT personnel with fresh and new computer applications and programs.

Among the benefits of this type of the training is the fact that the employees are trained by professionals. As such, the superiority and efficiency of the training are assured. Moreover, such trainings will provide accredited certifications which often add to the credibility and reliability of not only the trained employees, but the company as well. However, it should be noted that such types of trainings may be very expensive, especially if a large number of the labor resource is required to take the IT training.

IT consultants and system suppliers

There are many trainings and seminars that are provided by training organizations that specialize on IT. These are specialized courses that are held within the company premises and designed specifically to meet the IT needs of the company.

Such type of training is highly advisable for companies who opt to provide all their employees with IT skills of various levels and categories. While this type of training may be more affordable than public courses, such does not highly recognized accreditations and certificates if not conducted by the system suppliers or manufacturers.
