TRAINING: Technical Communication Certificate at VIU

On September 1, 2008, Vancouver Island University officially came into
being. The Ministry of Education for the province of British Columbia
designated the former Malaspina University-College as a regional
university with the new name 'Vancouver Island University'.

Running out of 4 campuses spread around the region, Vancouver Island
University has been in existence (as 'Malaspina') since 1969 and
continues to serve its widely dispersed student body with a breadth of
both trade and academic programs.

Vancouver Island University (VIU) has a highly-respected online
development team and is active in online education in both the credit

nd
the world.

The Technical Communication Certificate program at VIU has been in
existence since 2004. Its focus has always been on training working
professionals to help them upgrade their skill set in order to advance
and make lateral career moves within their organizations. With a focus
on software training, VIU has recently expanded its program electives
to
keep up with the changing demand of the industry.
