InnoTech College is a new post-secondary education institute in Alberta. It is both government licensed and government designated. With several renditions of its Programming Diploma completed or underway, InnoTech is continuing to improve and update its operations to continue working side-by-side with industry in educating our students to ensure that they are learning those skills that are most relevant to today’s employers. We also focus on ensuring that all of our students are supported and mentored both within and outside the classroom, to enable their successful completion of our programs and transition into or back into their chosen career.
InnoTech’s 2017 focus is on the continued improvement of its SharePoint Specialization Programming Diploma. It is the only post-secondary program in Alberta that takes a student with no previous programming experience and transforms them into a Programmer with a SharePoint Specialization.
many online SharePoint courses charge a couple hundred dollars for a single day of training, and those courses that teach in-class courses often focus on general knowledge and theory rather than on teaching skills applicable to the industry. These features of other programs, along with the demand for qualified SharePoint Developers in the industry, InnoTech College is proud to say its core program is its SharePoint Specialization Programming Diploma focused on lower cost for what the student receives and specific training of skills required and demanded in in the industry.
The program is eight months long, the tuition cost is the equivalent of two semesters of a university degree, the teaching prepares students for transition into the industry immediately following graduation, full-time or part-time work commitments are manageable with the class schedule, and the learning environment is designed in such a way that all types of learners can succeed.

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 as many opportunities to receive feedback and support from our skilled instructors as they might like.
