The Importance Of Technical Courses For Technicians And Engineer
Attending technical courses provided by your local technical college is a good move to increase your knowledge in electronics. We cannot limit ourselves in just attending a single subject such as electronic troubleshooting and repair.
There is many subjects about electronics especially nowadays where many engineering or technical college offering courses on PIC microcontroller. Robotics and household equipments such as air condition, washing machine, tv, monitor and testing equipments are using microcontroller.
You can take up courses like programmable logic controller (PLC), Industrial Automation Electronic, Microcomputer troubleshooting, electronic control systems, networking and etc. You have the choice to attend full time or part time. These specialize courses duration usually are between 3-6 months. Competition are so great nowadays and you need more than one skill to face the challenge. I have a friend who is working in oversea told me that if you say you are good in electronic repair, 100,000 peoples are also good in this field so what makes the employers want to hire you as a technician or engineer. The answer is multitask, that's mean beside doing repair work you have to be good in other area such as networking, computer programming and etc. You will be glad if you have attended those courses.
I once attended a seminar where the speaker mentioned about company resizing, company restructuring, retrencement, lay down workers, reorganize company in other word the speaker said you are fired! We have to fully equip ourselves
and be ready to face whatever challenge that is coming on our way. I have some friends who never attend any electronic courses before and they are venturing into the repair business. Though they can do the repair work, not all equipment can be repair. This is due to their limit in understanding electronic. Their job mainly substituting components rather than voltage
troubleshooting. I always encourage them to take up at least a basic electronic course to further their knowledge and hope to bring more income for them.
As for me, besides repairing monitors and conduct classes on electronic repair, i took up internet marketing as a another field for me to venture in. Though my passion is in electronic, i begin to like internet marketing because it can generate a passive income for me. The good thing is you can make money without a website and without your own products!. I can see the potential in it because you can market to the whole world and make money while you are sleeping. If you are interested in internet marketing i highly recommend you to visit this website. I have applied GREG HESLIN'S methods and it works! I do not know about your passion, but additional knowledge whether in electronics or non-electronics is a great advantage for you and learning has no end.
I have read this quote from a bulletin and would like to share it with you.
"Destiny is not a matter of chance,
it is a matter of choice.
It is not a thing to be waited for;
it is a thing to be achieved.
