A Look At The Growth Of The Computer Training Industry

A Look At the​ Growth of​ the​ Computer Training Industry
It started with a​ math problem .​
That problem brought on​ the​ challenge of​ more complex math problems .​
Humans were performing these complex math problems using various methods .​
Then came the​ abacus: a​ simple instrument designed to​ aid in​ performing mathematical calculations .​
One might say that this is​ where computer training began: the​ first teacher training the​ first student on​ the​ operation of​ the​ abacus .​

Many years hence,​ other devices were created to​ aid in​ mathematical computations,​ yet the​ original 'computer' - the​ abacus - remained .​
Through the​ aid of​ electronics came the​ first computer .​
This first computer could fill a​ room .​
In fact,​ there are many from that era in​ use to​ this day: they still fill a​ room .​
the​ purpose of​ the​ first computer was to​ complete complex mathematical operations in​ little or​ no time .​

In the​ beginning,​ computers were the​ forte of​ scientists and mathematicians .​
Then they became more prevalent making their way into universities and other higher learning institutions .​
At the​ universities and other higher learning institutions sat students undergoing their first computer training classes .​
Students anxiously stood in​ line after line to​ sign up for computer training classes: many were turned away due to​ over-crowding .​

As technology advanced,​ these super computers began shrinking in​ size .​
In fact,​ computers can now be found that are smaller than a​ cornflake: they are properly termed microchips or​ mini-computers .​
Along with the​ shrinking size of​ the​ computer came the​ shrinking price of​ a​ computer .​
Eventually,​ computers became affordable enough for the​ average Joe to​ own .​
Not only were they small and affordable,​ they were portable (think laptop) .​

With all of​ these computers,​ somebody needed to​ know how to​ use them .​
Universities offered computer training courses as​ well as​ small colleges and technical colleges .​
What was once considered an​ intellectuals pursuit only,​ has become commonplace .​
High Schools initially offered computer science's where basic computer programming and computer basics were taught .​
the​ computer then made it's way into middle schools and on​ into elementary schools .​
It's come to​ the​ point where everyone attending public schooling is​ exposed to​ some form or​ another of​ computer training .​

It's gotten to​ the​ point where young school-aged students began having more experience than the​ older generation .​
In fact,​ it​ seemed they were outpacing their elders in​ at​ least that one area of​ expertise.
The older generation began to​ recognize the​ need for computer training .​
Many were busy raising the​ younger generation .​
This generation found it​ difficult to​ take time to​ attend formal computer training in​ a​ classroom environment .​
Still others,​ busied by a​ full time job faced a​ similar dilemma .​
Computers were in​ the​ workplace and the​ higher paying jobs were going to​ those with computer knowledge or​ outright expertise.
Companies,​ institutions,​ and computer experts recognized this and took advantage of​ it .​
the​ lack of​ computer training and or​ lack of​ time created a​ niche .​
Computer training took off .​
Online computer training courses became available for just about anyone that could find their way onto the​ internet .​
This truly brought computer's to​ everyone.
Considering the​ above account,​ one can't help but wonder what the​ next step in​ the​ growth of​ computer training will be.
