3 Reasons Why Authorized IT Training Matters


How often have you or your team answered cursory or even critical IT related questions with an approach of “I’ll just Google or YouTube it”? With the skills shortage at record highs and the skills gap a continuing concern among IT departments, you might be hearing this more and more often.

Sure, you might be able to find answers that way.  And yes, the internet is full of both free and easy to find information, but how do you know this information will work to answer your questions?  Unfortunately, there’s a lot of incorrect information out on the internet. Are these answers current or even accurate? Who is the person behind the source of the information posted and what level of expertise do they really have? Will these answers work in your environment with your infrastructure?

These are just a few questions that should keep both IT managers and system administrators alike up at night.  Forward thinking companies are looking to bridge their tech skills gap and upskill their employees.  And they do this with authorized IT training.  Authorized IT training is training from the source.  Here are just three reasons why authorized IT training matters.

1.
