Montreal college course content is aligned to the industry requirements and is delivered by industry experts. This coupled with the fact that the training is hands-on, enabled me to succeed in the job interview. I was working a technical support specialist with a large corporation. Even though, I had a stable job, I realized that I needed to enhance my skill set to be more relevant in the job market, secure my future and earn more. To provide a fillip to my stagnating career, I invested in learning BASIS administration. I choose Montreal College after extensive research. In fact, the irony was that there was no other college offering a similar program. Having completed the training, I am and glad that I choose Montreal College. They provided the best learning platform including an instructor with many years of industry experience, learning aids and importantly practice labs that provided practical and hands-on training.
