“I had no prior knowledge of website development but had always been curious to learn how a website worked. So, I researched online and found an online training which taught about website development. Its content seemed interesting and so I enrolled for it. The quizzes and coding challenges along the way made this learning journey quite interesting. I ended up learning much more than I had expected.

Immediately after I completed the training, I began my search for relevant internships because I was eager to work on live projects. I applied to an internship with a startup and shared the link to the e- commerce website I had built as a part of the training in my application and within a week, I received an email stating that I had been shortlisted. I was then given a task wherein I had to design a homepage for their website with a header followed by a photo carousel, services, and other details. I put everything I had learned during the training to use and got hired after an interview. Now, I am working as a front-end developer with them. My responsibilities include developing various blogs and websites for the organisation and testing them for speed and performance. I also work on their SEO plans, meta tags, and WordPress plugins.”
This is what Sanya Singh, a student of Northern India Engineering College, had to say about her tryst with online training how it helped her embark a professional career.

Every year, lakhs of students graduate but most them are not able to get a job or an internship. It might be due to lack of relevant skills or knowledge about the subject. Online training can help bridge that gap at an affordable price and make you stand out from the rest.
To help you understand how online training can make the difference, we have listed the perks it offers below.

1. In-depth knowledge:
Online training is designed for the masses hence, the training is broken down into several segments and covers the basics quite well. The entire training will have tests and assignments to provide you with an in-depth knowledge. At times, your syllabus might not be updated with latest
developments in your field of study but online trainings help you learn the latest technologies.  Also, your learnings will be put to the final test by completing the project at the end of the training.

2. Live experience:
Online training would give you an opportunity to test all that you have learned into live situations; academically and professionally. It will help instil confidence in you to change your approach as per the objective rather than the conventional approach. The projects which you do as a part of the online training will help you apply the theories on to real-life situations. For instance, you could make a new website for your college or an exam-bank app for your batchmates as a part of your project. You will get hands-down experience through these projects.

3. Opportunity to explore:
School or college is a difficult stage for everyone. Either we are not sure about which field to pursue graduation in or with time lose interest in. Online training can help solve that problem. The duration of the training range from 4-6 weeks and it will help you understand where your interest lies. Before you start looking for opportunities to work, it is essential to establish if you are interested in your field of study and have a good knowledge of the subjects.

You wanted to learn something new at the convenience of your home. After thorough research, you got yourself enrolled in an online training. You had everything planned out, but the outcome isn’t what you had in mind. To help you avoid some of the common mistakes that students make and yield the best possible outcome from the training, we have listed few things you could do.

1. Timetable:

The biggest perk online training has to offer is the flexibility. You can pursue it at your own
convenience, but it is essential to realise that it should be used as an advantage rather than a disadvantage.  Students after enrolling start procrastinating and end up not finishing the training. So, to avoid that, it essential to break down each module and make a timeline for respective modules on the basis of the content. Apart from making it a seamless journey, it would also help you in realising the progress made and the journey you are yet to cover.

2. Practice:

The knowledge that you gain can only be effective only if you practice. So, to ensure that
you gain an in-depth knowledge about the subject, it is quintessential to practise all that you have learned and thus put to the test your abilities and skills attained by completing the test and assignments on time. You could even browse the internet for more study material or make a problem statement of your own that you can solve using the skills attained.

3. Research and seek answers:

While learning, it is normal to have doubts, but it is equally important that you seek
answers for things you didn’t quite understand. A thorough research about the and jot every doubt you have and then reach out to support or the subject matter expert for the answers. The more unresolved doubts you have, the less you will learn. So, remember, you are an anonymous user to the platform so your doubts as frivolous they may be, can be asked without hesitation.

4. Practical applications:

So, you have learned all that you wanted to but how to put them to the test? Well, that is
where practical applications come. The new perspective that you gained from the learnings
should be put to the test by figuring out better ways of evaluating a problem. To look for
problems or ideas that could be solved using the application of the training. The knowledge
gained from the online training will help put you a step ahead of your peers and a certificate at the successful completion of the training will help validate that as well.

Initially, things might be a little difficult to manage but remember that you have already taken the hardest step – realizing the need to upskill yourself and enrolling in a training.  During the training, if you ever start to jitter, remember why you joined the training and what you wish to gain because once you have a clear sight of the goal, there isn’t much that would deter you from your path.
