Technical Training

I have recently done some 'virtual' technical training on a certain technology.  It always seems to be the same to me.  Now Im not a fan of 'virtual' training.  I need to be there with someone and able to ask questions and interact.  Virtual training does work for some, but not for me.  But one thing I do think is that training should actually prepare you for installing equipment, from start to finish.  It seems like what I typically see is that the trainer will go over what each feature is instead of what it is AND how to implement it.  I mean the labs that they give you just do this 'step 1, do this. step 2, do this'.  It just seems like there is a better way of teaching this stuff.  Maybe this works well for some people, but it doesnt for me.  Im thinking in the future, I might want to be a technical trainer.


  1. Shane, you and I are on the SAME page!! I've been to some of those training just follow the steps, but there is no understanding that is passed on. In fact, the material presented appears to be written by someone that doesn't even understand what they are doing. Ready to start our own technical training company??

    1. Yeah, I am. When you get tired of your job, let me know. :)
