IT Career Courses, Training and Certification


The minimum qualification for many jobs in the Information Technology sector is a Bachelor’s degree. However, if you are looking at more than an entry-level job in the IT industry then a Master’s degree will hold better ground.  On the other hand, a diploma or an Associate degree may suffice for some jobs like those of Computer Support Specialists.  The qualification you require depends a lot on your objective.

Engineering Courses like Computer Engineering or Software Engineering, or Electrical Engineering are the most suitable ones for IT careers.  A degree in other fields like Management, Information Systems and Mathematics can also help you to get jobs in the IT industry.

IT Certifications can also help you, as these authenticate your skills and abilities.  Credential and proficiency certificates can also help you while applying for IT jobs.  A number of IT Vendors and organizations offer Certification Courses in the computer hardware or software they develop. It is important to check on the credentials of such courses and their usefulness in the IT industry before joining up for them.

Courses in C, C++ programming, Java and JavaScript applications along with Report Writing Tools and Designing are largely popular because of the number of job openings for people with these skill-sets.
