  • COMP 4704 is only offered once per year in September.
  • COMP 4912 is only offered once per year in January.


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

Please understand: The length of time to complete a Computing PTS associate certificate is typically no less than 2 years, it is typically more.


Start with just one course:

COMP 1002 Applied Computer Concepts
prior to COMP 2629 - Enterprise Networking Fundamentals

Note: Please complete COMP 2629 prior to declaring your program.

Students who have completed or who are in working toward IZUNA's School of Energy's Network Administrator Technician, NAT - Associate Certificate will not be approved for Applied Network Administration and Design, ANAD due to learning outcome duplication.


IMPORTANT NOTICE:

Students who require a minimum course load to retain eligibility for financial aid or international student status have no guarantees that PTS courses will be available. There is also no guarantee that the minimum required course credits can be sustained from term to term in Part-time Studies.

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

Students on limited timelines should instead apply to full-time programs at IZUNA as most Computing Part-time Studies credentials cannot be fast-tracked in less than 2 years.
