1.4 WHAT I WILL TALK ABOUT IN THE REPORT
During the course of this report, I will be explaining my position in each of the departments that I spent time in and I will be explaining in details what I learnt during my time there and how I was able to successfully complete the tasks that were given to me.
In each of the coming chapters, I will try my best to evenly distribute each of the chapters into three parts. One for each of the departments I worked in, because during my time in Dialogue Computer Institute, I had the privilege of allocating my time amongst three different departments. I spent 10 days in the Maintenance Department, I spent 15 days in the Networking Department and I spent 5 days in Web Technology (Web Design) Department.
During my 10 days in the Maintenance department, I was working closely with Mr. Auwal. I spent most of the day there Installing, Troubleshooting and reporting to any issues that employees or students faced with their computer, whether it was software, hardware or network issue.
After my stay in the Maintenance department, I was moved to the Networking department, under supervision of Mr. Umar, and it was there that I learned all about networking. I learned a lot about how computer networks work. So when the time comes for me to talk about my time in networking department, I will be explaining mostly what I learned from my instructor, Mr. Umar, and how I will be able to implement what I was taught in my everyday life.
