Industry has found that, while universities prepare students academically, they are not well prepared for professional work. Students gain excellent academic knowledge of the world of IT, but they are not always well equipped to apply this knowledge to solve real life problems…
Employers do not have the time or resources to provide the necessary training for the transition from student to professional employee.
FDM Academy bridges this gap, providing students with a unique opportunity to acquire these skills in a professional environment. What is offered is in some way similar to an apprenticeship or an internship, however in this case the training period is only 12 weeks! In addition to our ‘core technologies’ (Unix, SQL), trainees are also provided with a well rounded set of professional skills to equip them to meet the general requirements for employment with blue chip companies. These include CV writing, time management, communication skills, interview techniques.
Trainees can now confidently start their career with a finely tuned skill set, rather than broad-based theoretical knowledge. A definite win-win … and FDM’s success is a testimony to this.
