Part-time MFE options?

Currently employed as a DevOps Engineer. Prior military US Navy for 7 years and separated in 2007 working as a Test Engineer(No Degree) up to 2019 when I transitioned to DevOps.

Currently working on my Computer Science degree which will finish at the end of this year. I will be taking the CQF in 2023. I currently develop my own trading systems which are retail-based and fairly simple.

I am trying to break into the industry and I have heard the requirements are pretty steep but can only do a part-time school. I have also heard that online MFEs, are not well respected? Any suggestions? Will the CQF be enough?
