I am on my way to BCIT to take a test that lasts three days. I have been given the opportunity to get certified as an IT trainer. I have one problem: I don't know what they are testing me on. Is it content? Is it how to use their software? Is it both?
The entire course is online and the platform is actually pretty cool. I can see how this platform will enable me to do things I can't currently do, due to budget constraints. I am pretty excited about that part. I first have to pass this unknown exam. This has brought up a problem I suffered from going through high school and post-secondary, and one I see increasingly in students. I have major test anxiety!
I have never been one to downplay the anxiety of students. I fully understand, but this has reignited a need to make things even clearer. I blame no one. I may have had the inability to find the information; this could rest solely on my shoulders. All I know is that I need to be much clearer in my own online portions of my course.
Wish me luck!
