Online AMT Upskilling: Self-learn & Benefit through the Lockdown
With the current Covid-19 pandemic, lockdowns and working from home have become the new normal. This has meant considerable disruption to business activity, but has also resulted in a lot of free time on our hands as individuals. Using this time wisely to equip ourselves better for when the world returns to normal will be of tremendous benefit.
How can you use your time effectively?
One excellent way to make productive use of time is to upskill ourselves. This is especially true for students and personnel connected to engineering and manufacturing domains. Why?
First, because colleges and manufacturing plants have been heavily hit by lockdowns, meaning a lot of time available. But second, and more importantly, because technology has evolved very rapidly in recent years in manufacturing, making it increasingly difficult for colleges and companies to train students and personnel fast enough to keep up with the pace of change.
What better time than now for companies and colleges to impart such training to build a competitive advantage and emerge stronger from the current lockdown!
And indeed, what better time than this for an individual to equip him/herself with skills in advanced manufacturing technologies in order to leapfrog their peers as sought after resources in the industry!
Where do you start?
Fortunately, today there is a whole lot of e-learning content available to cater to this need. Unfortunately, a lot of it falls short when it comes to real-world industry knowledge. It is very important that you identify the right source of learning content to maximise the knowledge you gain.
First, identify the technologies that you believe are most relevant to your field of interest – some of the increasingly popular and widely applied technologies include CNC, Robotics, Mechatronics, Automation and so on.
Second, when you identify possible providers of courses on these technologies, assess their technology background, tie-ups with major technology providers, and their training track record before choosing them for your own training or signing up for your manufacturing company or institution.
And after you sign up?
Signing up for online training is like signing up for a gym membership – it takes commitment and discipline to make the most of your upskilling plans!
So set aside time each day, put aside potential distractions, and dive in – after all, these are advanced and complex technologies we are talking about – half your attention simply won’t do justice to the subject matter.
But once you apply yourself and hit your stride, the sky is the limit – this truly is a way to create an opportunity out of a challenging situation!
