No They Did Not – IT Rant

IT manager says training such as OS server training is not necessary as technology can be self taught from reading online on an IT pro spare time.

I believe training is most important to any IT professionals, the IT industry is knowledge-driven, IT professionals often maintain multiple certifications, including advanced credentials. IT professionals must embrace an attitude of lifelong learning to keep up with changing (and new) concepts, skills, and technologies.

Certifications, along with their associated preparation activities, are a great way to sharpen existing skills and take them to the next level. They’re also a good way to learn new skills in areas where you may have only limited hands-on experience.
