Necessity to be trained
Whatever profession you may be in, there is always the necessity of career training; lawyers, doctors, engineers, chefs, social workers, health care providers, technicians and the like – all need career training and retraining as the demands of the job change with the today’s technology. If anyone refuses career training, he will soon go into incompetency and obsoleteness. He will not be able to survive in the modern world if he does not keep up with the times.
While at school, one has already begun the process of training for a career. That is why we go to school; to be trained to take on the preferred or targeted niche. During the course of study, there is the practical aspect where a student undergoes hands-on training where he gets a feel of the real life situation under supervision. This type of pre-career training prepares the student to embrace the future job scope and responsibilities.
Career training also comes on when you start working; there will be changing demands which require the staff to be retrained; or a change in technology which enhances our work style to produce increased results, which every organization eyes at. Hence, in the respective professions, there is an absolute need to undergo career training which one terms as re-training or refresher courses. A definite advantage of career training is that the trained or re-trained employee will be equipped with the better productivity tools – knowledge and skills, to propel him into the forefront of demand which leads to career success. Every organization wants to be projecting higher results every year, even though the market is getting more competitive with more and better players.
There are many ways that you can facilitate training for yourself. Your employer can be the main source where most established organizations recognize the importance of career training to keep their staff productive and efficient. This is a good source of training as the employers acknowledge that their staffs are their main asset.
Another source of training can be on your own provided by outsiders, skill providers and educators. These trainings can happen over the weekends, evenings, part of the day or over a short period of time like days or weeks. For instance, language and computing skills can be picked up or enhanced which may be relevant to your job scope if you meet different nationalities in your job environment or if your office uses computing facilities to communicate such as email or teleconferencing.
Even managers and other senior positions require career trainings so that they remain relevant and alert to the changing demands to their products and services; otherwise, the company may incur loss because the management was not updated on the latest or newest facility which could be their latest competitor.
