Professional IT training The other response you are likely to get is that IT training is something that professionals undertake. This can be one of many things:
- Training in the IT processes utilized in the organization in which they are employed (including hardware).
- IT skills that can be transferred (helpdesk skills for instance).
- In-depth training on complicated software packages such as the ones mentioned above.
It is this distinction that can make it so difficult to really define what IT training is, and isn’t. The label itself is not useful either, because this distinction isn’t explained in the terminology. IT itself is really what allows an entire organisation to operate and goes beyond the software and hardware, but is about how these interact, how the networks are operated and how the server is set up. At the same time, people how to use parts of the IT system – computers and software packages – need to have some training as well. Essentially, IT training is simply training in the part of IT systems in which you are employed.
