First InfoTech Class Graduates


Thirty-nine McMaster staff members will receive their certificate of completion in InfoTech Coach Level – the first of three levels in the InfoTech Leader Program.

The ceremony took place on Tuesday in the Great Hall of the University Club and featured provost and vice-president, academic Harvey Weingarten congratulating staff and presenting them with their certificates.

Jointly developed by the Centre for Continuing Education, Computer Information Services and Human Resources, the InfoTech Leader program delivers training in emerging computer technologies, including web design, security and information management.

Supported by the McMaster University Futures Fund as part of the Skills for the New Millennium project, the program's objective is to locate computer expertise within individual departments and Faculties.

The graduation coincides with the start of another cohort of Level I InfoTech Coach students (now open to off-campus applicants) and the beginning of the Level II InfoTech Adviser portion of the program. Upon successful completion of all three levels, participants will receive a Diploma in Applied Information Technology.
