Program description - May 2026

Information Technology is an ever-changing field with two of these new areas of expertise being Virtualization and Cloud Computing. Organizations are migrating physical infrastructure (computers and networking) of their organizations to a virtual/cloud environment. The virtualization strategy allows companies to plan and replace existing infrastructure with public, private or hybrid cloud solutions driving cost savings, better management and reduction of infrastructure support. Furthering this, companies are also purchasing or leasing cloud services as a means of provisioning services without any onsite installations of hardware. In order to help organizations succeed, specialist skills in these fields are required. This two-semester Ontario College Graduate Certificate program concentrates on hands-on experiential practices and techniques commonly employed in Virtualization and Cloud Computing. You will gain valuable skills and knowledge in evaluation, design and implementation of cloud infrastructure and services, distributed workloads, business continuity, cloud migration strategies and disparate solutions integration. Graduates will have the skills required to move into more senior IT and Data Centre positions.
