This is a question which confuses many of the people who have either done a degree just for qualification or a technical/professional course but still have no job at hand. I meet several working experienced professionals also who somehow chose a wrong carrier path earlier.
3 to 6 Month duration course
PC Hardware & Networking is a field with enormous job opportunities these days. At all big and small companies technical support staff is required. Moreover, with 24X7 operations in place company needs substantial number of support staff to avoid any eventual loss of efficiency due to hardware and system failure.
For most of the practical purposes card level PC hardware knowledge is suffecient to handle day to day activities along with proper knowledge of computer assembling, installations. To acquire this knowledge a practical training of 3 months is sufficient. Within a short duration of 3 months with hands on practical training one is ready to start for job. As in any other job experience is critical but if there is huge demand of professionals it is easier to get a paid entry and climb the ladder for deserving. So, i feel this surely presents a very good short term carrier option specailly for those whos re not studious type and find it difficult to pursue higher studies. Joining a course with more of practical is advisable bcauz it really brings result.
As far as networking is concerned it has also huge demand in market. No doubt networking can also be learned at a short term but it requires further certifications to get a hold in market. These certifications like CCNA, NOVELL are difficult to clear and expensive to get. So, I will suggest networking course to those who want to pursue carrier in hardware and are a bit studious too and have financial resources to appear for certifications which gives survival kit to them in market.
So, folks computer hardware is a good choice if you are even not much educated or qualified as this is about skill and technical bent of mind not about subjective studies but about practical application. I am really surprised that every time there is an opening at some company it becomes hard to get professionals and yet enough people are not opting for these short term courses which can really give them employment in a very short period of time.
With computers coming to every individual hand PC hardware and networking courses has provided huge job opportunity to skilled people. These courses even don’t required high qualification and gives ample opportunity to earn money even after a short term training. Now with gradual shift from PC to laptop due to portability and mobility a new set of skills is required to cater the huge market needs for laptop repairing engineers.
Chip level laptop repairing course gives edge over other professionals as it gives an opportunity to fix the component level problems in laptop which is not handled by most of hardware engineers.
For those who have already done a course in PC hardware it gives an opportunity to upgrade their scale in shorter period and with a very reasonable fee. For others who are fresher and want to make carrier in computer hardware repairing course covers PC hardware, laptop hardware and chip level for both. Laptop being an expensive item and with warranty period getting shorter provides goon money earning opportunity to deserving Laptop repairing and hardware engineers. One can be self employed, tie up with some hardware repairing shop for laptop repairing or work on a good salary in hardware company, service centre or branded companies. With huge market of laptop sales and rapid growth in sales there is a definite huge gap in required number of laptop repairing engineers available and required.
Many institutes can be found to claim training in hardware and laptop repairing but a hands on practical training at chip level are provided by very few. We can very confidently claim that we are one of them. Also, we provide experts in repairing as your instructor rather than just a regular instructor.
Earlier you grab the opportunity better success and long lasting carrier you have.
