These days, there are many institutes which teach technical courses. It includes all courses from mobile repair technician and laptop repair technician to the Bachelor in Electronics degree. Many courses are run by institutions. Institutes have the certificate policies. This means that after the completion of the course, the institute gives a certificate to the candidate. This seems like a good deal from the outside but unfortunately the value of the certificate has become more valuable than the actual skill. No one seems to be cross checking what has actually been learnt in the class and whether it has been learnt well. Such courses only end up emphasizing on theoretical knowledge without looking into on the practical aspect of the course. This decreases the quality of good technicians and in the long run, lowers their confidence.
If you check the aggregate of students learning technical repair, you will find that only 20% of them actually know and apply the material taught in these courses. Many students do these technical courses only for the certificate. They don’t actually learn anything. Many Institutes charge very nominal amounts and teach nothing to the student and after that specific period, provide the student with a certificate. Many students don’t even know the basics of how to start or install programs in the computer. Many institutes end up teaching the old techniques with outdated equipments. The candidate suffers in the long run because they find it difficult to deal with new technology and new products. That candidate ends up putting in a lot of hard work but can’t see the fruits of this hard work because it is not smart work.
So these are the problems with conventional technical training courses. Candidates who are interested in the technical industry, try finding a good course or good online portal which offers actual knowledge with new equipment and modern techniques. Before registration, ask for a demo class and know exactly what you want and figure out if that institute is actually capable of meeting your expectations. Meet the professors and talk to them, meet the students of previous batches and ask them about their experience in that institute. Finally, be a skilled technician rather than just a certified one.
