ComIT – a registered charity that provides free IT career training courses to those who can prove a need – has three January courses with application deadlines approaching.
On Dec. 20, online applications for its Node.js course, Java course, and .NET course will be closed on its website.
Each course not only guides students through the related coursework but also provides sessions on resume building, interviewing, and teamwork, as well as other necessary soft skills for the job market.
The Node.js course will be taking place in Vancouver starting on Jan. 6, while the Java and .NET courses will be starting on Jan. 7 in Winnipeg and Jan. 13 in Edmonton, respectively.
In 2020, ComIT will also see be hosting three courses in Regina, Saskatoon, and Calgary, five in Winnipeg, two in Edmonton, and one in Vancouver; although those courses do not have a set subject matter as the organization sets those according to changing market needs.
Additionally, the organization is working to add more courses in Vancouver, Toronto, Kitchener, Montreal, and Ottawa.
ComIT’s founder, Pablo Listingart, says meeting market demands is all the more important with the rate of change in the IT industry, pointing out that even those with established skills and careers in the industry may need to look at adapting their roles to maintain a job.
Some topics covered by ComIT so far include Full Stack .NET, Full Stack Java, NodeJS, React, Unity 3D, and automated testing, with an eye on creating courses on digital marketing and tech sales in the near future, according to Listingart.
Founded by Listingart, ComIT was established in 2016 after Listingart immigrated from Argentina to Canada and provides free IT career training to those who may not be able to afford it.
