Benefits of Doing Short Courses at the Watsan Training Center
Below are 5 benefits of doing a short course at the Watsan Training and Development Center.
1. Increases Chances of Employment
Finding employment is a challenge, but even more so for the unskilled and those fresh out of high school. A short course provides an individual with a skill which can assist in making that individual more employable.
2. Career Development
Sometimes skills of an academic nature are insufficient for the workplace with regard to management positions or any other position on senior level and requires certain attributes for an individual to be competent. There are short courses in the form of seminars or workshops which run for a few days whereby individuals acquire leadership, managerial and interpersonal skills which assist in career development. Some companies offer short courses of this nature to employees at the company’s expense. It is wise to take full advantage of your company sending you for a short course because adding the certificate to your CV makes a good impression whether you desire a promotion or seek a better opportunity.
3. Personal Development
Short courses can be effective to improve one’s character. For example a public speaking course is useful for an introvert to build confidence to speak in front of a crowd and will help the individual in a professional as well as social setting. There are courses that cater for both career and personal development, for example, a computer course not only proves useful in the workplace but also makes it easier to keep up with advancing technology and programs by having the basics covered.
4. Short Courses for Leisure or Hobbies (CV Enhancer)
Learning or acquiring a skill is not only for the benefit of one’s personal or career development but can be done as a leisurely activity. Examples of short courses that are suitable as leisurely activities include photography or interior decorating, typing & secretarial services and designing courses. These courses are initially set out as career options but can also be enjoyed as a hobby.
