Default Working in IT - would following qualifications help

I have worked in IT for 7 + years. However I don't have anything other thatn
secondary school education, and my question is; would having an MCSE or CCNA
/ CCNP qualify as a trade certificate.

Or does anybody know where I can find this out.

Many Thanks
Martin.

No, those are not trade certificates of any kind.

Formal post-secondary education and/or training/apprenticeship are required
to get more points in education factor. Go back to school, and earn a degree
or diploma at least. But note that even with Master's or PhD degree you
won't be able to reach pass mark if you don't have well educated spouse
and/or close relatives in Canada and/or HRDC approved job offer and/or at
least moderate skills in French.

It is impossible to tell you what areas you should improve without knowing
all details of your qualifications. You may email me directly for free
evaluation.

I knew U of Portsmouth accepts MCSE/CCNA providing credit towards their degree/master course.. You can probebly apply and get examption for your first degree, and the course is available on-line too... It's around 1-2 years total duration.. keep going...

You have no chance of getting a job in IT in Canada. Bare minimum
reqruiements are:
5-10 years relevant work experience.
University Degree at a top university.


MCSE, CCNA and CCNP are only useful when you have a university degree
in Computer Science or Computer Engineering. And even then, they are
barely useful.
