Are technology colleges a good way to enter the job market?

How do the modern Canadian technology colleges rate? I need to help a friend decide which college or path would be best for her to enter the technology job market.

I am helping a friend decide whether or not colleges like Herzing or CDI in Montreal, Quebec have a good reputation, or are effective as institutions of learning. She is interested in entering the technology job market as a programmer, analyst, or web programmer, by taking one of the 16 month courses they offer.
She is not thrilled with the idea of university (McGill or Concordia) as admissions, tuition and time commitments would place her in financial straits.
Answers to the following questions will help her make a better decision.
1) Are these colleges worth the tuition? 2) Is the job placement really as advertised? 3) Do they have quality teachers? 4) Is the quality of education good? 5) Which would be the best (any anecdotal evidence would be great!)
Thank you all.
