      (NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C.)--Is your small- to medium-sized company short on resources but big on computer challenges? Do you need to build a database, network your computers, or have some programming done? Help is close at hand.

      Students in Capilano College's Technical Computer Professional program are available for eight-week work terms from September to October.

      "We have the best accelerated program available," says Nancy Nowlan, program development manager. "Students are learning the backbone of technology and of e-commerce.

      "They are keen, motivated and smart," she adds, "and most have previous degrees, a high level of maturity and previous work experience. Plus, instructors are there to back them up if they run into any difficulties."

      Trained in Microsoft and Novell networking, Visual Basic programming, Access and SQLdatabase management, systems analysis, hardware, and operating systems, students are willing and able to take on a variety of tasks and projects.

      "Companies who want to initiate a Web presence, retailers who want to start database marketing, expanding technology start-ups who need some help, or larger organizations with IT departments who need temporary assistance could all benefit from students in the one-year accelerated diploma program," Nowlan says.
