Since most of HRtraining’s training courses are delivered online, some students wonder what kind of computer skills they will pick up after completing their training. This post aims at identifying some of the most useful computer skills you will gain from online training.
First of all, online training teaches you to use a browser on the internet. Most of us are not programmers or designers and we only use the internet to search for information. In addition, you can literally find information about anything you can think of on the internet. By doing the training online, you will naturally pick up this skill as online training is essentially a practice of browsing numerous web pages.
Second, online training equips you with the ability to use search engines wisely. Even if you have never used a computer, you must have heard of search engines like Google, Yahoo or Bing. Being able to find useful information by specifying the terms you use in the search engines is a useful skill that will not only help you find the information you want, but also save you time. For instance, when you try to search for the train timetable for trains going from Brisbane to Sydney, what search terms will you use so you won’t see timetables for trains leaving Sydney for Brisbane? When you do your training online, you will need to use search engines very often. At the end of the training, you will have had developed some good ideas about how to use search engines.
Third, typing using a keyboard! As you will need to type in your answers, after the training, you will be fairly sufficient in typing on a keyboard. Without doubt, this skill will make life so much easier for you when it comes to writing emails, drafting documents, chatting with family and friends online, etc.
In summary, completing training online gives you the opportunity to obtain basic computer literacy. In this day and age, knowing how to use a computer is expected. The time when a person who could use a computer was considered a genius is gone. If you have never used a computer before, it is a good time to start!
