Computer Based Information Systems (CBIS) is a part-time certificate program designed to help you upgrade your professional designations. Delivered entirely online, the program attracts working professionals from a wide range of positions within the public and private sectors. It enables you to build a strong foundation of theoretical knowledge, balanced by practical application, in computing and information systems, together with specialized knowledge in the areas of networks, systems analysis, databases, the Internet, business information technology, and education and workplace training.
The CBIS program is comprised of five core and four elective courses. You may apply to the program and enrol in courses at your own pace, or enrol in individual courses that pique your interest, without applying to the program. It’s a convenient way to learn and a great combination of theory and practice that will shape your perspective on a rapidly changing work environment.
The certificate is designed to create opportunities for mid-career professionals rather than for those starting their careers. It is recommended, participants have completed at minimum, secondary school and possess in combination with their education a minimum of five years' work experience. Applicants should meet all course-level prerequisite requirements. If you do not meet these course-level prerequisite requirements, we encourage you to contact the program administration office to discuss your background and other previous education.
