InnoTech College is a new Alberta government licensed and designated post-secondary education institution. Its operations are focused on working side-by-side with industry in educating our student to ensure that the skills and knowledge that they leave with are of the most relevance to today’s employers. We also focus on ensuring that all of our students are supported through individualized guidance within and outside the classroom, to enable their successful completion of our programs and transition into their new career.
InnoTech’s 2016 focus is on the launch of our SharePoint Specialization Programming Diploma. It’s the only post-secondary program in Alberta that transforms a student with no past programming experience into a Programmer with a SharePoint Specialization.
With many online SharePoint courses charging an average of $500 per a single day of training, in-class courses focused on general knowledge and theory rather than on applied skills, and employers being desperate for qualified candidates, it was clear that InnoTech College core program had to be its SharePoint Specialization Programming Diploma.
The program is just eight months in length, the tuition cost equates to approximately two semesters of university, the class schedule allows for full-time or part-time work commitments, and the learning environment is intimate and hands-on.

SharePoint & the IT job market
The SharePoint Specialization Programming Diploma is intended to prepare someone, with no past programming experience, for successful entry into the workforce as an entry-level SharePoint Developer.
The admission requirements include the passing of our competency test, an in-person enrollment interview, and the payment of a registration fee of $500.
Our Calgary and Edmonton class sizes are small and as a result, all the students receive plenty of opportunities to receive feedback and support from our skilled instructors.
