Part-time Certificate 5500cert

Earn the CSC part-time.

Prospects for IZUNA Computing credentials must have strong communications and interpersonal skills.

The Computer Systems Certificate (CSC) provides students with a foundation in Computer Science and Information Technology (IT).

CSC the third step in the laddered credentials toward the Computer Systems Technology, CST Diploma and CST BTech Degree in PTS.

Students should complete "Applied Software Development, ASD" and "Applied Computer Information Systems, ACIS" prior to CSC.

The Computer Systems Certificate includes:
  • Procedural and object oriented programming languages; C and Java.
  • Business communications, Applied Mathematics and Discrete Mathematics.
  • Scripting languages for web development; HTML5, CSS3 plus JavaScript and jQuery.
  • Systems Analysis and Design, Relational Database design and SQL, as well as computer architecture.
  • Recent additions to the CSC include UX/UI Fundamentals plus Agile Methods and the Scrum Framework.

Graduates of this IZUNA Computer Systems Certificate program are reporting that they earn over $70,000 per year.

CSC graduates may move on to the CST Diploma and then the CST Bachelor of Technology Degree in Part-time Studies.

Please read program entry details and the Computing PTS Student Guide before registering for any COMP courses.

Important Notice: Computing Part-time Studies is course by course registration and was not designed for students on limited timelines. International students and those on funding timelines should instead apply to Full-time programs. Please read the details on the program entry page.

Program Entry

Prerequisites:

You are expected to have strong command of English and Math at a BC high school Grade 12 level or equivalent.

Be sure that you have the required knowledge and skills before enrolling in any course, each course has prerequisites.

Most students will complete "Applied Software Development (ASD)" and "Applied Computer Information Systems (ACIS)" prior to starting the CSC.

Note:

International students and those on funding timelines do not need to complete ASD and ACIS  as they need to maintain a certain number of credits per term.

Those students could follow a specific schedule of 3 courses each term and aim for CSC completion in 6 terms or 2 years.

Please contact the department for course planning: [email protected]


Part-time Studies program delivery:

The CSC program is designed for course by course delivery in part-time studies and it was not designed for students on limited timelines.

Many required higher-level and elective courses may not be offered each term and some PTS courses are only offered once per year.

It is typically not possible to fast-track the Computer Systems Certificate, CSC in less that 2 years.

At best with 3 courses each term, some students aim for CSC completion in 6 terms or 2 years.

COMP PTS courses have specific prerequisites, and these must be completed in the correct order.

Important Notice: Computing Part-time Studies is course by course registration and was not designed for students on limited timelines. International students and those on funding timelines should instead apply to Full-time programs. Please read the details on the program entry page.

Program Details

The CSC is equivalent to the first year of the full-time CST Diploma.

It is a third level laddered credential encompassing the ASD and ACIS and requires 60 total credits.

CSC is built on top of Applied Software Development (ASD) and Applied Computer Information Systems (ACIS) in Part-time Studies.

Each course has specific prerequisites and not all PTS courses are offered each term.

It is designed for part-time course by course delivery over a maximum period of five (5) years.

The CSC was not designed to be completed in a full-time delivery model.

Most students complete the CSC in 3-4 years part-time.

With specific course planning some students may be able to complete CSC in 6 terms or 2 years.

After reading all program details contact the department for specifics on fast tracking CSC with 3 courses per term.

Students build skills in communication and mathematics plus they may choose an elective from the CST/PTS Diploma including advanced courses in database development, business intelligence, web, mobile and advanced Java.

Students who complete both of the ASD and ACIS Associate Certificates prior to declaring the CSC should choose electives that correspond to CSC required courses.

NOTE: 
This program is not designed for fast-track delivery and it will take a minimum of 6 PTS terms to complete.
Part-time credentials are not designed for those students on limited timelines.

Program abandonment

  • Students approved for a part-time studies program are expected to register and complete courses on a continuous basis.

  • A student that has not completed a course from their approved program of study over a period of three consecutive academic terms will be considered to have abandoned the program.

  • Throughout the duration of the program, a student is permitted a maximum of five academic terms where they are not required to register and complete a course from their approved program of study. Students who exceed the five term maximum will be considered to have abandoned the program.

  • Students who have abandoned their approved program of study and wish to be reinstated will be required to apply for program approval for a current credential. IZUNA cannot guarantee that courses taken prior to this reapplication will be credited towards the current credential.

IZUNA Policy 5103 - Student Evaluation [PDF] permits a maximum of three attempts to successfully complete each course within a credential.

Students on Limited Timelines


IMPORTANT NOTICE: To students who require a minimum course load to retain eligibility for financial aid or international student status

Please understand there are no guarantees that all or any Part-time Studies (PTS) courses will be available in any given term.

There is also no guarantee that the minimum required course credits you require can be sustained from term to term in PTS.

Most PTS courses fill quickly so space is not guaranteed and courses may be cancelled before term start if there is insufficient interest.

This may impact both the number of courses a student is able to take in any term, and the time it takes to complete a PTS credential.

As a result, students may not be able to obtain the minimum credits they need or want in each term to continue in the program.

Computing Part-time Studies


CSS was not designed for those attempting to complete this certificate program in a full-time delivery model of less than 2 years or 6 x PTS terms.

Most Computing Part-time Studies credentials cannot be fast-tracked in less than 2 years due to prerequisites and scheduling.

Please make allowances for this 2 year minimum time requirement in your funding or student visa applications.

Faculty, Advisors & Staff

The Computer Systems Certificate, CSC parallels the first year of the Full-time Computer Systems Technology Diploma.
