Hi there, I am looking to enter the field of cybersecurity and have no IT experience. I have taken some courses at a smaller community college (A+, Project+, Network+, Windows Server, Azure [3.9 GPA overall]) but didn’t complete a certificate or diploma. I’ve been told by both below schools that transferring credits is not an option.
Admissions at CDi/Vancouver Career College gave me their pitch today and it all feels a little too good to be true. I am seeking help in determining if this is a good program to get me into the field or a money grab. The program is only 18 months and requires only high school so I am also skeptical of its quality. They also claimed students work part time during the program.
Here is CDi/VaCC’s course listing page:[Cybersecurity Specialist Courses, Program & Diploma | Vancouver Career College BC](https://www.career.college/programs-and-courses/cybersecurity-specialist/)
My best alternative seems to be BCIT’s program (linked below).[Industrial Network Cybersecurity, Diploma, Full-time – BCIT](https://www.bcit.ca/programs/industrial-network-cybersecurity-diploma-full-time-5265dipma/#courses)
Any tips, help, suggestions greatly appreciated!
