When it comes to training for a new career, you want to be sure the school you choose has the complete package: skills-driven programs, supportive staff, and modern equipment.
Herzing College Montreal is offering new scheduling options to make it easier for busy adults to fit career training into their lives.
You might not guess this from looking at job postings, but network administration and systems administration are separate specialties within IT.
Herzing instructor Paula Callaghan has long been a key figure in the Ontario paralegal industry.
In early 2020, Monica Keyes-Cabral was at a crossroads: her career as a paramedic, which she thoroughly enjoyed, was taking a toll on her mental health.
She left her job just before the pandemic was declared. But she still wanted a meaningful role that allowed her to help people and support their well-being.
She investigated different training options and eventually chose the Occupational Health and Safety program at Herzing.
After an intense year of juggling online studies and helping her three young children adapt to COVID realities, Monica recently graduated—and landed a job at the same place where she did her internship.
Read on for her full story.

Medical office assistants (MOAs) have a unique role that blends administrative and patient care responsibilities.
You may have heard that thanks to artificial intelligence, bookkeepers and accounting technicians are being automated out of existence.
The World Economic Forum identified accounting, payroll and bookkeeping clerks as the second most at-risk jobs in Canada, set to become increasingly redundant by 2025.
But that's based on the notion that bookkeepers are little more than data entry clerks. For those who are eager to take on more analytical and advisory responsibilities, the move to automation can actually be a good thing.
"The current automation of accounting is mostly on repetitive tasks,” says Cindy Cao. She’s a curriculum designer who has developed college courses for accounting and payroll as well as business administration programs.
“This can be a positive change for students who want to pursue a career in accounting. They can focus more energy on analyzing the accounting information rather than being trapped in repetition."
The bottom line? Accounting professionals are still in demand, but the way they do their jobs is changing.
It’s an excellent time to launch a career in computer networking. The Government of Canada Job Bank estimates that network techs and administrators will see strong demand in most areas of the country over the next few years.
Hoping to take advantage of that trend? One of the best ways to catch an employer’s attention is by earning relevant certifications.
A September 2021 report found that 72 per cent of hiring managers were more inclined to hire candidates with certifications—a significant jump from 52 per cent in 2020.
So which certifications are most requested by employers right now? We analyzed dozens of network administrator job postings to get the answer.
Based on our findings, these are the top networking certifications that can help you begin and advance your career.
