North Island College has announced that it will receive $100K from the British Columbia government to support 40 spaces in a new technology certificate program. According to the Comox Valley Record, NIC is in consultations with industry and employers to ensure that students graduate with the skills to meet the sector’s needs. The certificate will reportedly enable students to work in IT within a year. “NIC has been very diligent in seeking feedback from industry and tech-based enterprises in their curriculum development,” said Graham Truax, executive in residence at Innovation Island. “They are mindful of where the puck is at, and where it is going.” BC | Comox Valley Record
