Default Skilled worked - What counts as a Trade certificate in I.T.?

I will be applying to immigrate as a Skilled worker in I.T.. Does anyone
know which diploma or trade certificate, as mentioned in the following
option in the self assessment test, will meet the criteria:

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/skilled.../Education.asp
"Obtained a one-year diploma, trade certificate or apprenticeship and
completed at least 12 years of full-time or full-time equivalent studies"

I do not believe that MSCE counts, but will a City and Guilds or NVQ
suffice?

Thanks in advance.

Paul: The educational certificate has to b one that is issued by a
Government recognized or approved instute or orgabization. I presume
City and Guilds would be okay but I am not familar with NVQ although
it stand s for National Vocational Qualification.

NVQs are considered to be at a much lower level than A Levels (kind of like
secondary school exams at 16 yr old) and therefore I think it would be
questionable if they would be accepted unless it was a trade skill. I would
expect that only NVQ levels 4 and above would be of any use. Level 5 is
classed as pre-A level standard.
