What will I learn?

Our nationally accredited Information Technology courses are for anyone who requires specialist skills and knowledge to administer and manage information and communications technology (ICT) support in small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) using a wide range of general ICT technologies. Persons working at this level apply a wide range of higher level technical skills in ICT areas such as networking, IT support, database development, programming and web development.

Our graduates are eligible for student membership at Australian Computer Society (ACS). The ACS is the association for Information and Communications Technology (ICT) professionals, with a large and active membership from all levels of the ICT industry. The ACS is the public voice of the ICT profession and the guardian of professional ethics and standards in the ICT industry, with a commitment to the wider community to ensure the beneficial use of ICT. The ACS is a member of the Australian Council of Professions.

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

Study Path

Training is delivered in stages which correspond to AQF Levels IV to VI. The preferred pathway for a qualification is for students to complete the requirements of the previous level qualification before progressing to the next level – thereby achieving more than one qualification.

Applicants without the previous level qualification will be considered if they have relevant qualification and/or vocational experience. We aim to equip our graduates with the necessary skills and knowledge to enable them to successfully satisfy the demands of the workplace.
