How to choose the best institute?
Choosing the best institute to learn the course you are interested in is the key to your career success. If you make the mistake of choosing a substandard institute, where the teaching standards are below par, then not only does your job opportunities get affected, but also your confidence level would become very low, & you may lose interest in the field altogether.
But there are so many training centers in the city & it’s not easy to decide upon the best institute; so, we have listed certain factors that you should consider before zeroing in on the best training facility.
1 Website – The website of the institute, in most cases, would mirror their standards too. Any professional organization would have a professional website, & you can assess their values to a large extent by looking at their website.
2 Infrastructure – All good companies will have a decent infrastructure. It may not be huge or have any fancy things in the reception, but it should look neat & must radiate a positive feeling. Like website, the infrastructure of the institute will also represent their quality.
3 Ratings, Reviews, Testimonials, Word of mouth etc. – This is the most important factor, as word-of-mouth reveals a lot about the company & their services. Do a thorough research about them in Google & Social media before making the final decision.
4 Curriculum – Check their curriculum & confirm if it’s an updated one, keeping up with the current industry trend. Look for institutes that are offering more content, as far as the course curriculum goes.
5 Practical sessions – Practical sessions are the most important for your learning, whatever course you want to do. Check if the institute has a spacious lab & enough number of good configuration systems. You must give preference to those institutes that offers unlimited lab hours, as practicing for more hours under the supervision of a trainer will make a big difference to your overall learning.
6 Value additions – Always choose the institute that offers most value additions (co-curricular activities), as it would give a student an all-round edge. Value additions may be Placement assistance, Seminars, Events/Contests, Company visits etc.
Now there are 2 factors that you should NOT consider while choosing an institute to pursue the course you are interested in –
Fees – Always remember that Quality comes with a cost. Never choose an ordinary institute over a better one just because it offers the course for few thousands less. You may save few thousands today by choosing an inferior institute, but what you lose in the long term will be extremely high.
Distance – Don’t make the mistake of only looking for those institutes located nearby your house, as you might lose out on good ones situated a little far. Be prepared for the little inconvenience of travelling a few kilometres in traffic for few months, in order to learn from the best center. This little difficulty you suffer for a short duration will pay rich dividends in future, if you get better quality training from a better institute.
Hope you find these factors to be helpful while choosing the best institute to pursue the course you are interested in. ALL THE BEST!
