SURVEY DONE BY LICORICE
Q. What’s your aim in joining a course or training? (MA)
Respondents with a percentage of 29.94% join a course simply to develop their skills. This goal is considered not surprising since the objective of a course is to train its participants about specific lessons or skills.
With the growing educational standards, professionals are being replaced daily. This is mostly for those who have a low market value in terms of the skills that they bring to the job. Training programs are great for improving one’s set of skills and adding accomplishments and certifications to one’s CV. This makes sure that a person maintains a relevant market value in a job.

For New Job
Other 15.17% of respondents join a course to develop a skill to move from a current job to a newer job or new place. Sometimes, a job move needs certain skills to be developed. So before moving to another job, some of the Indonesian will train themselves in training programs or courses.
If you are offered a new job or assignment, it is expected that you will do a great and successful job on it. As a result of this expectation, most professionals are driven into taking up training programs so that they can better understand the assignment, its requirements, the expectations and how to complete it successfully.
Add Different Perspective
According to the result, we can see that there are other reasons why Indonesian joining a course. Some of them mentioned that joining courses may add a different perspective. Training programs provide a platform where you can get to hear other people’s varying perspectives on different issues. This information is often from both the facilitators and participants. In some instances, you might even get information that you were not seeking initially, which you can then use to improve your business.
