INDEPENDENT CONSULTANT PROGRAM
What is TechnoFro's "Independent Consultant" Program?

As with any skills, only through repetition can one become a proficient technology engineer. TechnoFro’s Independent Consultant program encourages former students to pursuit their entrepreneurial ambitions and establish their own clientele – while having the benefit of leveraging TechnoFro’s infrastructure and personnel assets should they encounter an issue outside of their current level of expertise.

 

Is this program currently available?

No. This program is slotted to begin later in 2020. Students will be contacted once it has commenced.

Which TechnoFro resources are available to participants of this program?

TECHNICAL ESCALATION

Growth requires stepping outside of ones comfort zone. Should a participant encounter a client issue that they cannot solve, TechnoFro mentors will work with program participants  to resolve their client’s issue. This service allows the participant to select how transparent their TechnoFro assistant is to their client while working the issue.

INFRASTRUCTURE RESOURCES

Building clientele takes time and dedication, but once established – providers quickly discover how fast tracking client issues, equipment, and paperwork becomes overwhelming. From service agreements to issue tracking, TechnoFro allows program participants to leverage our established systems so that they can focus on their clients and skill set.

PAYMENT PROCESSING

Participants are able to tender credit card transactions for their clients through TechnoFro’s online portal at no extra cost.

What's the cost to participate in this program?

TechnoFro collects 20% of each transactions solved with the assistance of their personnel and/or infrastructure.

Do I have to route all of my clients' requests through TechnoFro while participating with this program?

No. The intent of this program is to allow the student to establish their own clientele – while using TechnoFro as a ‘safety net’ ; we strongly encourage participants to utilize our services only when they encounter a technical issue with one of their clients that they cannot solve. 

For Example: Shonna completed TechnoFro’s Adult program last month and is excited to start repairing computers for the company she owns. Shonna carries two sets of business cards: one branded with her company and her title as owner, and – the other, a TechnoFro branded business card which lists Shonna as an Independent Consultant. Shonna is free to engage with her clients using whichever card she wants.

Given the above example, some students may choose to engage clients as Independent Consultants of TechnoFro for the first few months after completing our course – until they’re confident in their ability; whereas other participants may choose between which card to give out – depending on their familiarity of the issue at-hand, on a case-by-case scenario. 

As part of this program, am I limited to types of technical issues I can pursuit?

Yes. To ensure that TechnoFro has mentors qualified to address the client issues that participants may escalate, participants are provided with a list of issues with which TechnoFro mentors can assist. Participants are welcome to take-on any issue they wish, as long as they understand that they will be solely responsible for any issues not listed as supported by TechnoFro. (The list of accepted issues will be posted shortly) 

CURRICULUM
What's the difference between the in-class and after-school curriculum?

The in-class curriculum is designed to meet the governing education board requirements for the participating institution – which typically requires graded assignment and assessments.

The focus of the after-school program is to provide students with a supportive environment in which they discover, create, collaborate, and master a wide range of technology disciplines.

Why Linux?

From the smart TV in your bedroom to the iPhone in your pocket, parts of Linux are virtually everywhere; yet very few experience its power before entering the work force. As cloud computing continues to balloon in both prevalence and scale, employers are increasingly looking for employees possessing Linux skills along side traditional Windows abilities.

How will the open-source tools (such as InkScape) help students be prepared for using proprietory applications such as Adobe Illustrator?

The key to learning is mastering the concepts of a discipline, after which, varying techniques – such as those employed in different programs – are quickly attained. Open-source apps excel in their affordability and limitless customization – but usually lack the ease of their proprietary counterparts; thus once an individual knows how to execute a task using open-source software, the learning curve for that vary task using a proprietary alternative is nominal.

Open-source is the heart of innovation. It’s a community of passion-driven experts sharing contributions to collaboratively create the best product possible. Early exposure to the open-source ideology endows future engineers with boundless resources.
