My only feedback for UofT is that there should be a faster way to finish the courses. Ryerson has a fast track program and York is introducing one. I was in the middle of a career transition but had to wait an entire semester for one of the courses to become available. There might be better certificates out there for you if your main goal is learn quickly and apply lessons in a new job.
