The Information & Technology Bridging Program is specialized training tailored for foreign-trained IT professionals. Participants receive a 16-week technical and soft skills training conducted jointly at CCIS and SAIT, followed by a 10-week internship at esteemed local IT firms. We help foreign-trained IT professionals in successfully transitioning into the Canadian IT industry by equipping them with current technical and soft skills, along with valuable Canadian work experience.
