  • “Even though I’ve been working on my field for more than 10 years, I was un able to get a job according to my background and my expectations. After the program finished I secured a position as Tech Lead – Call Centre Architect in one of the 3 big telecom Canadian companies. If it weren’t for the bridging program it would have taken longer for me to get the skills I needed to reach my full potential and step up my career” – Domingo Los Santos, Tech Lead - Call Centre Architect

  • “After I finished this program I gain advanced concepts and skills with an emphasis on virtualization and operating systems. This course helped me open the door for new communication networks with people how are working in the field. The Mobile Systems Integration bridging program is very important for the Network IT professional. Right now I have a good job as a Senior IT Technician and I am still in contact with the people who taught me and they are ready to help even after I finished my courses.”
