Insights On Commercial Computer Training For Microsoft MCPD

What could a trainee searching for Microsoft authorised training expect to come across? Patently, training providers should give access to a number of course choices that meet the requirements of training tracks certified by Microsoft.

It's a good idea to talk through what you're looking to do with an advisor - and if you're uncertain, then take counsel on which area of the industry would be right for you, based on your likes and dislikes and your character.

When you've settled on the career track for you, an appropriate course has to be selected that's goes with your skills and abilities. You should expect to be offered a bespoke package for you.

Several companies supply a practical Job Placement Assistance facility, to help you get your first job. Because of the growing need for more IT skills in this country today, it's not necessary to get too caught up in this feature though. It's actually not as hard as some people make out to secure a job once you're trained and certified.

Bring your CV up to date as soon as possible however (advice can be sought on this via your provider). Don't wait until you've graduated or passed any exams.

A good number of junior support jobs have been bagged by people who are in the process of training and have still to get qualified. At least this will get you on your way.

The best services to help you find a job are usually specialist independent regional recruitment consultancies. Because they make their money when they've found you a job, they're perhaps more focused on results.

A big grievance of many training course providers is how much people are prepared to study to pass exams, but how un-prepared that student is to get the role they're studied for. Have confidence - the IT industry needs YOU.

Don't get hung-up, like so many people do, on the training process. Training for training's sake is generally pointless; you're training to become commercially employable. Focus on the end-goal.

It's quite usual, in some situations, to thoroughly enjoy one year of training but end up spending 10 or 20 years in something completely unrewarding, simply because you did it without some decent due-diligence at the beginning.

It's essential to keep your focus on where you want to go, and then build your training requirements around that - avoid getting them back-to-front. Keep on track and study for a job you'll enjoy for years to come.

Before you embark on a training programme, it makes sense to chat over the exact market needs with a skilled professional, to make sure the learning course covers all the necessary elements.

If you're like many of the students we talk to then you probably enjoy fairly practical work - the 'hands-on' personality type. Typically, the world of book-reading and classrooms can be just about bared when essential, but you'd hate it. Consider interactive, multimedia study if learning from books is not your thing.

Research over recent years has time and time again shown that becoming involved with our studies, to utilise all our senses, is proven to produce longer-lasting and deeper memory retention.

Start a study-program in which you'll receive a library of CD or DVD ROM's - you'll begin by watching videos of instructors demonstrating the skills, followed by the chance to fine-tune your skills in fully interactive practice sessions.

Always insist on a study material demo' from the school that you're considering. The package should contain slide-shows, instructor-led videos and interactive labs where you get to practice.

It's usually bad advice to choose training that is only available online. Because of the variable quality and reliability of all internet service providers, it makes sense to have CD or DVD ROM based materials.

A so-called advisor who doesn't question you thoroughly - it's more than likely they're really a salesperson. If someone pushes specific products before understanding your background and whether you have any commercial experience, then you know you're being sold to.

Quite often, the level to start at for someone with experience is substantially different to the student with none.

For those students commencing IT study from scratch, it can be helpful to start out slowly, beginning with some basic user skills first. Usually this is packaged with most training packages.

Well Done! By landing here you're probably toying with the idea of re-training to work in a different industry - that means you've already taken one more step than the majority. A small minority of us are happy and fulfilled in our work, but no action is ever taken. So, why not be one of the few who decide to make the change.

Before we even think about individual training courses, discuss your thoughts with an industry expert who can talk you through what to look for. Someone who has the ability to get to know your personality, and find out what types of work suit you:

* Do you like to be around others at work? Perhaps you like being a team player? Perhaps you prefer not to be disturbed and enjoy responsibilities that only you know how to deal with?

* Building and Banking are struggling today, so think carefully about the sector that will be best for you?

* Is this the final time you want to study, and if it is, do you suppose your new career will offer that choice?

* Do you have niggles about your chances of new employment opportunities, and being in demand in the employment market to the end of your working life?

We would advise that your number one choice is IT - it's common knowledge that it's on the grow. It's not full of geeky individuals gazing at their PC's every day - of course those roles do exist, but the majority of roles are carried out by Joe averages who are earning rather well.

Most of us would love to think that our careers will always be secure and our work futures are protected, but the likely scenario for most sectors throughout Great Britain right now is that there is no security anymore.

Of course, a marketplace with high growth, where staff are in constant demand (because of a massive shortage of properly qualified workers), enables the possibility of real job security.

A rather worrying United Kingdom e-Skills study showed that more than 26 percent of all available IT positions cannot be filled mainly due to a chronic shortage of trained staff. Showing that for every 4 jobs that are available across computing, we've only got three properly trained pro's to fulfil that role.

This disturbing concept clearly demonstrates an urgent requirement for more properly certified IT professionals across the United Kingdom.

It's unlikely if a better time or market conditions is ever likely to exist for obtaining certification in this hugely expanding and blossoming sector.

Many students presume that the school and FE college track is still the most effective. So why then are commercial certificates becoming more popular with employers?

With 3 and 4 year academic degree costs becoming a tall order for many, along with the industry's increasing awareness that vendor-based training often has more relevance in the commercial field, we've seen a big surge in Microsoft, CompTIA, CISCO and Adobe accredited training courses that supply key solutions to a student for considerably less.

Patently, an appropriate degree of associated information has to be covered, but core specialisation in the required areas gives a vendor trained student a huge edge.

What if you were an employer - and you required somebody who had very specific skills. Which is the most straightforward: Trawl through a mass of different academic qualifications from various applicants, having to ask what each has covered and what workplace skills they've acquired, or pick out specific commercial accreditations that precisely match your needs, and make your short-list from that. You can then focus on how someone will fit into the team at interview - instead of having to work out if they can do the job.

Usually, trainers will provide mainly work-books and reference manuals. Obviously, this isn't much fun and not a very good way of studying effectively.

Studies have consistently verified that an 'involved' approach to study, where we utilise all our senses, is much more conducive to long-term memory.

Courses are now available in the form of CD and DVD ROM's, where everything is taught on your PC. Using video-streaming, you will be able to see the instructor presenting exactly how it's all done, and then have a go at it yourself - via the interactive virtual lab's.

Every company that you look at must be able to demonstrate some simple examples of the materials provided for study. You should hope for instructor-led videos and a variety of interactive modules.

Go for CD and DVD ROM based physical training media in all circumstances. You can then avoid all the difficulties of broadband outages, failure and signal quality issues etc.

An important area that is sometimes not even considered by potential students mulling over a new direction is 'training segmentation'. This basically means the method used to break up the program to be delivered to you, which makes a huge difference to what you end up with.

The majority of training companies will set up a program spread over 1-3 years, and courier the materials in pieces as you complete each exam. This sounds reasonable until you consider the following:

What if you don't finish every section? And what if the order provided doesn't meet your requirements? Due to no fault of yours, you might take a little longer and therefore not end up with all the modules.

Truth be told, the best solution is to have their ideal 'order' of training laid out, but make sure you have all of your learning modules right from the beginning. You then have everything if you don't manage to finish inside of their required time-scales.
