Under the heading of instructor-led training, there's the subdivision of private tutors. This category is usually understood as interactive, Web-based computer instruction under the online supervision of a professional instructor in the field of your desired certification. This sort of training is best for those who already have a substantial amount of computer experience, but still wish to be informed about the latest technologies and developmental implements. The advantage of these private tutorials over classroom education is that you can do them at your own pace, at your own elected time. Hands-on experience is simulated through the use of interactive, learning examples and end-of-discussion mini-exams. You also have the advantage of your own personal tutor being able to prompt, guide, and answer your questions through e-mail. Many vendors offer a virtual classroom, or student chat-rooms where users can congregate to get technical questions answered through a discussion forum. Another interesting advantage to Web-based, personal tutor-led training is that many vendors suggest that you can transfer such education into continuing education and college credits. Private, instructor-led training might be considered a more helpful approach than independent study, especially if you're a relative novice in the subject material. Since you've more resources to rely on, you're never alone if you're confronted with a baffling question. For more information, consult a computer certification professional.
