We began a new series titled becoming a computer skills guru. It was eye-opening to say the least (if you did not read that issue, you will do well to find and read it now, that is the background to what we are doing today and the next few weeks). And I promised that I would begin taking you through the three routes to becoming a computer skills guru on the computer. The routes were given as:
• Register with a Trainer
• Train yourself
• Acquire tutorial software
I told you, you could use one, or two, or all of the three, any or all will work, so, beginning today, I'll show you how the work and their merits. We'll go one step after another.
Register With a Trainer
This is about the best of all (if done right), because by this, you will stand on the shoulder of giants, thereby standing taller than your equals. What kind of trainer can you register with?
This is the very important question! You can not just go anywhere and register yourself with them because they say they are a computer school. These are the questions you should ask yourself:
• Do they really know the job?
• Do they really have the equipment to train people?
• Do they have the professionalism to teach and train?
• What is their track record over the years?
• What is their bill?
• Do they give their clients the required attention?
• Do they operate an on-the-job process for their clients?
These are the important questions you need to ask before you put your name, money and time into a particular place or person (trainer).
I know some quacks with big names, yet they know and do nothing at their training school, only ripping innocent and unknowing persons (clients) off their money, after all those people (the clients) know nothing too, and since they do not know, they will not know they are being cheated, until it is too late.
In the same vein, I know good trainers too who are really good on the job.
