Computer training is a good job since all you need to start with is a computer, which you probably have already. Also you can require the student to purchase his own computer otherwise she could not practice. Also this is something you could start with your friends who wanted to undergo computer training. Then you can work your way up through referrals.
IT training jobs are as prevalent as the number of computer IT courses being offered online:
Start with one specific area and as you gain more clients you would have a better grasp of which courses are more popular and you can perhaps take IT computer training on the side to add to your portfolio. Once you get the certification for IT training jobs you could offer more computer IT courses.
To succeed in this career path you must have the basic knowledge required for each task. As a teacher, you should always be ahead of your students’ skills. Aside from this, you must know how to troubleshoot when something goes wrong and pinpoint what they might have done or failed to do that has been causing errors. Usually, students would say, “I didn’t do anything” and you know better than to believe that one; it’s a user-problem.
You must also constantly update yourself with the latest software and technological advancements that has immediate effect on your line of work. Every year newer versions of software are being upgraded and you must be able to update your own computer with them.
You should be able to explain things clearly and simplify overwhelming computer jargons to someone who have just started using the program. It could be frustrating when your client could not comprehend a seemingly simple task and you probably how it is to be in their shoes and so patience is key.
You should also be able to be one step ahead when it comes to lessons. One way or another, there would be someone who knows the software more than the others and you should adapt your program specifically for such clients. You should know how to keep them busy without stressing out the less knowledgeable students.
IT Training jobs take more than just the basic computer knowledge, it also requires patience and creativity in teaching.
