Best short courses in Kenya

Short courses in Kenya are becoming essential in the selection process for open job opportunities in Kenya, so consider taking up one before you head off to pursue your degree or diploma.  Whether its foreign languages or professional courses, in doing so, you will pick up skills such as leadership, management and development along the way that will put you at a better advantage
1. Professional certification courses
I know after very few form fours are thinking about careers but being that you are headed there, it’s about time you thought about what career you want to pursue.
Short certification courses are very necessary when it comes to finding jobs among top employers such as multinationals, the government and NGOs.
The first thing you need to do is carry out research on the various professional courses that are available in your area of study and start working on that.
If you want to pursue accounting for instance, will need to pursue CPA or ACCA you are looking to get jobs fast after you are done with your major course.
And then, there are those required certifications to demonstrate your knowledge of various Accounting packages, including, Quickbooks, Sage, Pastel, Tally SPSS Project Management among others.
If you dream is to go into HR, you can begin with a professional Diploma in Human Resource Management while those looking to go into procurement will need to take up CIPS courses if they are to get good jobs and salary alike.
For marketers, there is CIM and those looking to get the upper hand in IT can pursue short course like Cisco CCNA and CCNP, Microsoft MCSA, MCSE or MTA, Oracle, Linux, CompTIA and the likes.
This also will boost your Computer Science Degree since in university there is lest Practical.
While at this moment this may seem like a dream too far, as you go on you will realize that professional certifications are becoming more and more of a requirement as the job market progresses so find one that appeals to your profession and take it up.
2. Computer packages
Least but not least, some of you may already be pursuing this and I must agree that it’s one of the short courses in Kenya that form four leavers should pursue.
It doesn’t matter if everybody is doing it, but knowing your way around a computer will come in handy when you are looking for a job.
Think about it, no one will want to hire a graduate who does not have knowledge on how to use a computer or to send a basic email. 
Some of the common Computer Applications Package you must have include
  1. Ms Office this comprises of ms word, excel, power point, access, publisher
  2. Graphics software like Corel draw, photo shop, illustrator, In Design, Page maker
  3. Web development and Blogging and on this case i recommend WordPress or Adobe Dreamweaver Because they are very easy to learn.
  4. Video Editing skills also can make you sharpen your mind. and i recommend Adobe Premier. 

Use this free time that you have to take up computer package course.

3. Driving
While this course may not seem so important to you if you are not looking to become a driver but most Kenyan companies today are adding possession of a Driving License as a requirement for various jobs.
Take for instance if you go into sales, you may require moving around and this will require you to drive.
There are some companies that provide cars for their stuff as part of the employment package and may use the driving expertise as a means of determining the most qualified candidate for the job.
So, quit asking what you should be doing, go on and enroll for a driving class.

4. Foreign Language Course
We are living in a country where foreign languages are taught in some primary and secondary school.
As a four four leaver, if you are looking to stand out and make a mark in the job market, start thinking long term.
Yes a copter applications certificate is important, but take it from me, rarely will anyone ask you for it when you are looking for a job unless you want to work in admin.
Alliance Fran├žaise is very popular in teaching French short courses.
And there are so many institutions in Kenya that teach other foreign languages like Chinese, Spanish, Italian among others.
Take it from me, it’s not only interesting to learn a new language but this short certificate has the potential of opening up so many doors for you in future.
People have gained free scholarships to study abroad just by mastering a foreign language.

How to Protect your Images with Password Before you send them Online

If you need to share a private image online and you are concerned that it may get leaked, then you can password protect the file before sharing it with anyone. Then even if it gets leaked, unauthorized people will be unable to see the image until they know the password.There is a free software named Lock Image to password protect Image files.

Lock Image is an open source tool that converts and image into exe file. The exe file contains the image file which can be seen by entering the correct password. This tool is portable which means that you don’t have to install it and you can carry it in your pen drive with you. Here’s the procedure to create password protected image files using Lock Image,
1. Download Lock Image (the LockImage-0.1-bin.zip file) from this page. Extract the zip file and simply double click on it to launch Lock Image.
2. To password protect any image, just drag it into the application’s window. Then go to File > Save, enter the file name and click on the Save button. At this point the password window will appear,
 
Password,Image,Lock
Lock Image

Isn't it cool.

Set Video as Your Wall Paper

1. I assume that you already have VLC media player installed. If not, then you can get it from this page. Download and install it. The start it.
2. Go to Tools > Preferences. Select the video tab from the left panel of the preferences window. Now in the Output drop down list, choose DirectX video output. Click on the save button.

VLC




















 3. Restart VLC.

 4. Now just play any video using the VLC media player. Once the video starts playing, click on Video > DirectX Wallpaper, and minimize the VLC window. You’ll immediately see the video set as wallpaper. You can work normally and the video wallpaper will behave just like a normal wallpaper. 

If you want your old static wallpaper back, then uncheck the DirectX Wallpaper in the VLC media player (Video > DirectX Wallpaper).
Also, If you are using the Windows Aero Themes, then it will automatically revert to basic theme because of the DirectX output. But don’t worry, you can easily turn on the Aero theme after you are done with this little game

I would suggest to set videos like Nature videos or default Video you get with Windows 7.That looks Cool
