Higher Certificate in Information Systems - Open Source

The Higher Certificate in Information Systems (Open Source) isa rigorous, comprehensive and career-focused qualification that prepares you for working across the software environment as an open source database developer or administrator. Given that many IT companies are now using open source software, this higher certificate is highly relevant to the information technology space.

The Higher Certificate in Information Systems (Open Source) provides you with a solid theoretical and intensive practical foundation in the basics of two programming languages and one database language, where the emphasis is on application. The core subject areas are: development and administration of the open source database MySQL, and developing programming skills in the two languages: PHP and Python. You also cover topics such as Computer Literacy and Database Design, Personal Skills Development, Processing and Logic, and using the Linux Operating System. We attribute much of the success of our Higher Certificate programmes in Information Systems (IS), to our unique Mastery Learning Methodology (MLM). This modular self-directed learning approach, gives you the flexibility to start and progress through the programme at a pace that best suits you.
