It goes without saying that the online information technology training and the software training courses we offer from our California IT training consultancy is expected to be sought out primarily by people who are aspiring to a career in information technology, or who are in the middle of such a career and are looking for professional development.
But regular readers of this blog will probably be well aware of the fact that there is a wide range of applications for our online information technology training that do not strictly fall within the IT field.
In the past, we’ve mentioned how certified scrum master training, certified scrum product owner training, and other sorts of agile training can be beneficial to virtually any career that requires collaboration, hierarchical structure, and divided responsibilities. These types of training certainly fit into the category of information technology training and would arguably be used to their fullest effect in that context. But they are wonderful training alternatives for someone who has an interest in IT but is not certain that he will make a lifelong career of it.
Yet, increasingly, there are many types of online information technology training that a person ought to pursue even if they specifically have a career path ahead of them that is not highly technical in itself. The fact is that IT is becoming closely integrated into the functioning of a vast array of fields and business practices. This partly explains why our online IT training consultancy also covers numerous business practices and certifications that are highly sought after in California and throughout the USA.
These include business analyst training and certification, business data analyst training, quality analyst certification, project management training, and, as previously mentioned, agile training. To a greater or lesser degree, each of these has a strong technological component without strictly being a technological field of study. Similarly, your applications of that training will probably require you to interact closely with technology within your business field, regardless of whether you consider yourself a tech.
This is a growing trend, and as such the need for information technology training is not limited to technical and business fields. It is increasingly a requirement for government and private sector jobs. Depending on the level of tech integration in your place of employment, it can be a benefit to anyone from the most influential policymaker to the lowliest service employee. And in the near future the lack of adequate training could get you into trouble if you can’t prove your competence at navigating hugely important technology.
Even Hillary Clinton is in hot water for this, according to the Washington Free Beacon. The office of the former secretary of state reportedly neglected to complete federally required IT security training. Not only is this a potential scandal involving competency and adherence to the rules, critics could easily suggest that the lack of training put the government of the United States at increased risk.
That should give you a good sense of how serious the requirements for information technology training have grown. And they have nowhere to go but up.
