There are many school and college in Myanmar, teaching IT subjects. They give you certificates and diploma. But They are expensive for most people. For those who cannot afford to attend such kind of education centers, I want to give you step by step study path to learn IT by self-study way with no cost.
Free courses –
1. Microsofot Windows Operating System Fundamentals
2. CCENT (Cisco Certified Entry Technician)
3. Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist
4. Basic Programming (Web Fundamentals)
Microsoft Windows Operation System Fundamentals (WOSF) is easy to learn. It doesn’t cost you too. You can buy book to learn and study online on free websites. You don’t need any teacher for it. I believe so. It will only take you one month. You can even finish it within a week if you can study fast.
After WOSF, you can learn Networking fundamental. You can type and search Networking Fundamental course online free in Google. I suggest you to learn CCENT (Cisco Certified Entry Technician). It is easy. There are many easily understandable books to read.
After CCENT, you can learn MCTS (Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist) by self study method. If you finished MCTS, you can become a desktop technician in an enterprise company.
After MCTS, you also need to learn web development fundamentals. It include Basic HTML and Basic CSS. After you finished the course, you can become a front end developer.
The above course I am showing you all are free to learn. I didn’t mention about Microsoft Office Word, Excel, Power Point because I believe you already learnt it. But it takes time too to become an expert at Word, Excel and Power Point. If you become an expert on them, you can become a become a trainer too.
After finished every courses, I also suggest you to sit for exam. For example, you can sit for Microsoft Windows Operation System Fundamentals. It doesn’t cost you too much too. It is under 90 USD cost exam. If you can handle certificates, you can easily get lots of opportunities from enterprise companies. There are also exam for CCENT, MCTS and Basic Programming.
After you finished all of it and got certificates, your skill is better than so-called IT diploma degree holders in Myanmar. You don’t even need to attend any class if you have passion to learn. You can ask seniors. You can google. You can expand your horizon in system administration, networking, programming, software engineering, accounting and so on depending upon your passion after finished all the steps I shown. I hope it help you a lot. You are welcome to ask me for any help.
