When I needed a career change into IT, there was no other option available besides Montreal College of Information Technology that offered such diverse choices. With the help of their amazing counselling and open house format, they were able to  help me identify the right IT path for me. Their Networking Diploma program was amazing and the instructors, who are all experts and work in their respective fields, were of high calibre. Along with their help and support I am now a Network System Administrator. THANK YOU Montreal College!

In order to build a strong foundation in Networking, MCIT was the most appropriate place.

During the Networking Diploma course I have learned more about networking than I have in the previous 15 years of real world experience. I now have a clear understanding of sub netting and how a network functions. The learning environment was friendly and amicable. We had instructions that were knowledgeable  and then labs to practice  what we had learned. The instructor also gave us real world bottlenecks that augmented the learning process. All of this has helped me in my role as a technical  professional. I now know where to look for the stress cases in order to solve them.
