Learners, if they are not already studying at college level, should at least be doing a trade. In fact, in the case of vacuum coating artisanal and technological processes, this is imperative. It is imperative that new learners and entrants to the related job markets that will require the applications of a variety of vacuum technologies do both. College and/or university (technical) training gives students a strong theoretical grounding.
At these levels, they are also applying themselves necessarily to science and math. Invariably, once they have received their degree certificates, most design and manufacturing businesses will require their new entrants to complete an apprenticeship. This is otherwise known as formal on the job training. But as early as high school, keen learners can already apply their minds to early higher learning by exercising initiative and proactive study and research behavior by subscribing to technical and trade magazines which are always going to keep them up to date with new theoretical introductions and the latest technological developments.
The online magazine design formats usually applied make reading and information material accessible and coherent to both beginners and established designers and manufacturers. In certain instances, material is contextually formalized while in many other categorized areas, reading is successfully carried out because there is an effort to reduce the use of industry jargon. This is pertinent to new stakeholders with no previous experience in vacuum technologies.
Online websites and/or magazines of the industrial genre need to be as functional as possible. They need to make it as easy as possible for their readers and subscribers to download important information for later use. Editorial staff also need to be fully alert to new requests for listing in order to fulfill their service mandate.
