Traineeship Details

Our Traineeship is based on the Two-track vocational training:

1) There's a practical part that concentrates on actual work and the making of things.

We give interns/trainees/apprentices actual tasks that would help the company grow.

These include among others:
a) writing feedback to determine how we can more properly organize ourselves in terms of communication
b) evaluating the company to determine how we can achieve CMMI (Capability Maturity Model Integration) Level 5
c) conducting Quality Assurance (QA) of our products/services
d) developing new and add-on software using existing tools

Given that we're a computer services company, the intern/trainee/apprentice ought to be able to understand computer software development.
Having said this, besides the technical aspect, we've learned that the person should also understand business.

2) There's specialist theoretical instruction.

We have the interns/trainees/apprentices do online courses and read offline materials.

a) Online courses

Examples of these include among others:
a) Java programming language
b) Android Software Development

b) Offline materials

Examples of these include among others:
a) Code Complete
b) The Different Drum

Whichever course or material, the interns/trainees/apprentices would have to physically come to the Usbong HQ to teach what they've learned to the team.
We then ask them questions that we don't necessarily know what the answer is.
Here, it is important to be able to recognize the inter-relationship between seemingly unrelated fields, e.g. economics and computer science.
