This new program features both practical and theoretical training in computer network installation, maintenance and management, preparing graduates for positions in Canada’s growing tech sector. According to BC Work Futures, employment prospects for computer network-related careers are very good. They project that 800-plus new jobs will become available by 2015 and almost 400 positions created by retirements within the field in the same time frame.
“British Columbia is becoming more and more well-known for technology and innovation. The province is home to a number of technology-focused companies, and businesses across the country are always in need of knowledgeable, hard-working tech specialists,” says Dr. Bohdan Bilan, VP of Academics for CDI College. “Graduates of these programs will enter this exciting industry equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to jump into the workforce.”
CDI College offers a suite of four technology-based programs in BC that give students the possibility of building their knowledge base one step at a time. The Computer Support Technician is a 24-week program for students interested in learning about system support and help desk techniques through the Windows operating system. The Network Systems Administrator program prepares students for multiple professional certifications through Cisco and Microsoft in a 45-week program.
