In my years in this industry, I have learned that continual exposure to training is essential to success. With the varied types of equipment, power sources and technologies that we are deluged with daily, no one person is capable of remembering all of the key aspects of each variable we are charged with maintaining or managing. There are many sorts of training opportunities available for us to participate in. From brief lectures, multiple-day hands-on seminars, DVD's, books, tapes, to on-line forums and webinars, we are all faced with many choices. Does watching a recorded presentation enable us to troubleshoot a complex technical issue, or should our learning be enriched through interaction with an instructor and/or peers?
I have always held that people learn more through their fingertips than they do through their eyes and ears; meaning that I prefer a hands-on opportunity to learn above all other methods of delivery. Does that make me different from the rest of the world?
I'm hoping that you'll share some of your personal perspectives in answering the question posed here. As a strong advocate for continuing education, I look forward to hearing from you.
Never stop learning!
