Technical training courses should be dynamic and include practical exercises, demonstrations and maybe some simulation. Some training vendors use remote labs for their hands-on courses, whilst others including ourselves use real equipment in the classroom so students can get a real feel for the work.
Even our hands on technical training courses explain the theory of a technology before explaining how to configure various pieces of equipment such as Routers, Switches, Hubs and Gateways. Some may argue “why do I need the theory”? Well, I remember when I first got involved with TCP/IP and networks. I also wondered what the benefit of learning the theory was. I then attended a data network troubleshooting course and troubleshooting methods with reference to the OSI 7 Layer Reference Model were described in detail. Three broad methods, the Top Down approach, the Bottom Up approach and the Divide and Conquer method. It was then that the penny dropped about the benefits of understanding the layered network models like OSI and TCP/IP.
We use a lot of acronyms in our industry and our instructors will always define what an acronym stands for. Our courseware always includes an Abbreviation of Terms at the back for delegates to look up for future reference.
Case studies form an important component of any technical training course, particularly when Telecommunications or Data Networking is concerned. Real World examples are a great way of explaining a particular topic, or at least putting it into perspective. All our instructors have Real World experience to call upon and they used their previous experiences to backup the theory and labs.
Although the term “Technical Training” covers a multitude of disciplines, the general format of this type of training is broadly the same.
When it comes to Training Courses, we offer an instructor-led open course schedule and can also offer our courses as onsite events at your convenience, wherever in the World you are.
