Student testimonials

I chose to study digital marketing because I think it’s a great field, and you can use your degree to work in so many areas. I like everything about CCTB, and I learned so many things about SEO and Google Analytics that I use in my co-op program right now.

Luisa Alencar, CCTB student

"One of the barriers for all immigrants and new graduates is to enter the job market. But when I entered this program, CCTB made this very easy for me. I got my first job offer immediately after the program, which was higher than my expectations."

Razieh Mokhtarnameh , CCTB alumna

"I just graduated from CCTB and right now I’m a business analyst at one of the government agencies. I don’t just think CCTB helped me, I think are still helping me now by providing feedback, responses, interview preparation and more."

Samuel Arawu, CCTB alumnus

"I completed my Software Quality Assurance testing through CCTB college. It’s amazing! It’s hands-on training and gives the experience of learning what we do in the work environment, which helped me to gain confidence to enter the new world of IT."

Vinitha-Kaliraj, CCTB alumna

"After taking the courses, I was ready and confident. In one of my interviews, the interviewer was impressed that I had that certificate. The instructors and the support team were so motivating and helpful that all students could catch up with the class."
