Who is a Computer Professional?

A computer professional is a trained person, who acquired a certificate in computer training. Computer professionals are those who have undergone one form of formal computer training, or the other, on the usage of the computer. These categories of people are involved in the development, maintenance, and use of computer systems.

A group of computer professionals works together, to produce both the computer hardware and software. Another group of people, of diverse professions, makes use of the computer to achieve one thing or the other, in their various fields. All these people are referred to as people-ware. They include computer programmers, computer operators, computer engineers, graphic artists, book publishers, and medical doctors. Without the people-ware, the computer cannot function. This can be compared to the driver of a car, without whom the car cannot move.
