August 24, 2016

Vancouver’s Native Education College has partnered with Professional Quality Assurance Ltd to offer a software testing certificate program for Aboriginal learners. Dan Guinan, NEC President, noted the booming technology sector in BC and said that Aboriginal youth can gain valuable on-the-job training and advancement opportunities once basic skills are obtained. The Aboriginal Software Tester Training Program aims to meet the need for skilled entry-level IT workers in Vancouver and across Canada. The certificate program includes four months of in-class learning followed by a two-month internship.
