Spring 2022 Alumni Programs
The digital world is constantly evolving. It is important for jobseekers and those at the beginning of their tech careers to stay on top of new in-demand skills that employers are looking for. At NPower Canada, we work closely with industry experts and employer partners to identify in-demand skills and gaps in the labour market, adjust our program offerings accordingly to ensure our participants and alumni are equipped with up-to-date skills that will help them advance in their career.
That is why we are excited to announce our Spring 2022 Alumni program offerings. Our alumni have exclusive access to these programs to upskill and climb the career ladder. Our alumni can choose between three different programs for the Spring 2022 cohort: Google Project Management, AI 900: Microsoft Azure AI Fundamentals, and CompTIA A+.
Applications for all of our alumni programs are now open.
Christian G., who has taken advantage of our alumni programs, said that completing our Google Associate Cloud Engineering program landed him a promotion at work. He is now working on his Jelly Academy certification to learn skills that will help him launch an online business. He has this to say to fellow alumni,
“If you are an alumni of NPower Canada, you should make use of the programs on offer. After all, they’re free, and you get valuable skills and training in return for your time. The course loads are absolutely doable, even with a full time job. Go for it!
Our Google Project Management program is back by popular demand. According to a report by the Project Management Institute, demand for project managers is growing faster than demand for workers in other occupations. We’ve already seen tremendous employment numbers with our previous Google Project Management cohorts – 86% of our 2021 Google Project Management graduates are employed.
The Google Project Management program will run from June 27, 2022, to October 2, 2022. Participants must be available for two 2-hour classes each week, with both morning and evening classes available. An additional weekly commitment of 15 hours will be required to complete coursework and assignments. The program will be delivered virtually. For more details on how to apply here, visit this page.
The Microsoft Azure AI Fundamentals program is new to our roster and available for graduates of our Junior Data Analyst program. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated automation and digitization, and with it, the need for IT talent with AI skills. Between 2015 and 2019, the number of businesses that implemented AI worldwide increased by 270% and AI adoption across the economy relies on knowledgeable talent to operate the systems.
The Microsoft Azure AI Fundamentals program will run from May 23, 2022, to June 26, 2022. Participants must be available Monday to Friday between 11:00am – 3:00pm EST, with an overall weekly commitment of 20 hours. The program will be delivered virtually.

A CompTIA A+ program is being offered as an instructor-led program for participants who graduated from our Junior IT Analyst or Junior Security and Quality Assurance programs. The program will provide alumni with better understanding of the fundamentals of computer hardware and software, as well as advanced concepts surrounding security and networking. The program covers a broad diversity of knowledge required of technicians today, and alumni will acquire transferable skills.
The CompTIA A+ program will run from May 23, 2022, to June 26, 2022. Participants must be available Monday to Friday between 11:00am – 3:00pm EST, with an overall weekly commitment of 20 hours. The program will be delivered virtually. For more details on how to apply here, visit this page.
