You Learn Something New Every Day
Each month, in conjunction with the mailing of the newest issue of Certification Magazine, we post a whole new batch of articles for each job role section of the CertMag Communities. Odds are, if you’re in the IT industry, there’s a community for you.
For instance, I am the author of this month’s Trainers feature, “ Bringing Slow Learners Up to Speed.” The article is geared toward the industry’s educators, but that doesn’t mean you can’t learn from it if you’re involved in, say, security.
I interviewed Vic Melfa, CEO of The Training Associates, and Laurie Campbell, technical training manager for New Horizons Computer Learning Centers Colorado. They both had some great advice for trainers who need to find ways to bridge the knowledge gap in their classrooms. Non-trainers also can gain insight on what it’s like to be on the other side of the desk, and how the can use their time (and their trainer’s time) more effectively to get the best results from a class.
So, the moral of this blog entry: Take a look around, even at things that may be outside your area of expertise. You just may learn something new!
