The first functional computer came up in the 1940s. The first widely sold and successful desktop computer was the Apple II introduced in 1977 by Apple Computer. It is evident that computers came very late. What has now become a reality is the omnipresence of computers and computing technology in all avenues of life. Computing technology has become a great enabling medium, and all areas are adopting it to increase efficiency. Thus, not only has there been an explosive growth of computers, computing technologies, accessories, networks, etc, but also an exponential growth of technicians to work on and develop those resources.
The insatiable industry requirement of such technicians has created a seller’s market for the latter – there are more vacancies than there are technicians. Therefore, many people are joining the core area of information technology, computer programming and development, either in search of employment, or to enhance their income. In developing countries like China, India, the ASEAN countries, as well as Ireland and some Central Asian countries, young people are joining the computing field in large numbers. To train and equip those upcoming technicians, training school of all shades and hues have come in up recent years. While not all of them maintain requisite standards, they do provide the market with a workable workforce that drives the economy. The computer training schools are not the cause but the effect of the ensuing IT revolution, and they in their turn are feeding it.
In this section of the directory, we provide you with links to various computer training schools and other resources.
