Momentum’s IT Support Specialist Certificate Program is your accelerated pathway to an entry-level job in Information Technology.

As a licensed career college, and a local charity, we are able to offer tuition support for individuals who qualify (see criteria below). Pay as little as $500 up front for training, and only pay the tuition balance monthly once you’ve found a job. This will ensure you never have to be in debt for a program that didn’t lead to a job.

1) Technical Certifications – achieve 4 technical certifications that are in high demand by Calgary employers, including:
- CompTIA A+
