    Information Technology Specialist

    http://computertechnology.vcc.ca/its...AL_DEPT_ID=682

    Is this program good? Is it better to take a tech program @ bcit then at VCC? Is this program similar to any bcit's programs? Has anyone taken it? If so, tell me about it, thanks.

    Check out the job market to see if it has recovered from the crash of a few years ago. If not, IT Specialist is going to be a euphamism for "Burger Flipper".

    I'd do what Madcat suggested first, if you still want to do it defintley choose BCIT over VCC. Maybe I just know lucky people but I have 5 friends that graduated from BCIT from different things, Engineering, Computers, Framing/boarding App. and everyone of them had well paying jobs within a month of graduation or sooner.

    Church doors are always open to whoever wants to enter, but they're only open to those who are willing to be sheep. The service of God is really service to those self-proclaimed holy men who hold the franchise. Accumulating material grandeur is the goal, not the improvement of the people's lives. Independent thought is discouraged. Raising the individual up is not part of the plan; keeping the flock docile, distracted, and deluded is what it's all about.

    There was a good read about the IT profession a while back.

    I think Adamantium said a few good pieces on there....but I couldnt find it.

    But the base of the thread was that becoming an IT is akin to working at MCds unless you know someone and/or are exceptionally good at what you do.

    I took the Professional Web Developer's program at BCIT for $21,000 and thought it was over priced for what you get. If I were you, I would consider taking some individual courses at both institutions and see who has the most to offer for the money. I work at VCC and find that the courses here are not bad. But, technologically, BCIT is the leader.
