"Skilled IT professionals are in huge demand worldwide! Take a certification course, take a ticket to travel".
"The strong demand for IT professionals worldwide - and the opportunities that demand presents for those looking for jobs - is perhaps the biggest catalyst in the rise in certification. Even the most difficult certification requires far less preparation time or financial investment than a four year degree in computer science. Certification can give an individual a quick introduction to the IT industry and the newest technologies, as well as an advantage in the job market. In employment advertisements, companies often list specific certifications as a requirement for a job."
What do you want to learn? Develop your learning objectives by completing this statement: "After taking this course, I will be able to..." Use this statement to determine if a particular course will meet your learning objectives.
What's your personal learning style? Most learners feel more comfortable if they know there is an instructor available to guide them and answer their questions. Others people prefer to learn at their own pace. Many learners like to interact with other attendees through discussion groups or chats. Visual learners like more graphics than text. Other learners prefer to listen to narration than read text. Choose a course with delivery methods that are compatible with your learning style. A self-study course may not be right for you if you learn best with an instructor and group discussion. If you prefer a self-study course, determine the extent to which you can control the pace of the course and determine the order in which to take lessons.
Where do you plan to take the course? Decide ahead of time where you'll take the course. Will you take it at your desk or at some other location? Plan to take the course where you'll be free from distractions and interruptions. Some people choose to take their course before or after work hours.
How much time can you realistically devote to the course? Some courses can be completed in an hour or two. Others may take a week or more. Match course duration with the time you have available.
What type of computer system do you plan to use for the course? Your computer's Internet connection and processor speed will determine how well the course will run on your system. Some courses require plug-ins, such as Flash. A few courses may not be accessible or run properly because of your company's network configuration or firewall. In some cases, the vendor can adapt the course to your Internet hook-up.
How much can you or your company afford to pay? Courses can cost anywhere from a few dollars to hundreds of dollars. In general, technical and computer courses cost more especially if certification is involved. A course with a live instructor, chat sessions and multimedia will also cost more than a self-paced one with limited media.
