Additional program-specific fee information for Computer Systems Technician - Networking.
Before deciding to attend Georgian College, I had 10 years of experience in retails sales management and nightclub security management. I had pretty much hit a standstill, which is why I decided to go back to school.
I started with little more than a casual hobbyist’s knowledge of computer technology, but I got to learn from a staff of experienced, enthusiastic professionals who work to stay current with modern trends in technology. In two short years, my co-op employers and incredible instructors were able to instil in me the knowledge, confidence and professionalism I needed to realize my goals and land what became my dream job.
I’m a member of the data centre management team at BMO, responsible for infrastructure logistics. We manage both the planning and physical installation of hardware and cabling in both development and live production environments. I’m lucky enough to work on a team with highly skilled, highly experienced individuals who all bring something different to the table.
Georgian College was able to help take a retail sales manager and turn him into a highly paid, legitimate IT professional – I think that pretty much speaks for itself!
At Georgian, I learned that the old cliché “Anything is possible, as long as you’re willing to work hard enough” might not be such a cliché after all.
