Our Information Technology courses have been developed according to the requirements of the Information and Communications Technology Training Package (ICT15), in consultation with our industry partners and have been approved for delivery by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA). They are nationally recognised qualifications within the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF)
