The ICT30120 - Certificate III in Information Technology - Focuses on Cyber Security Awareness where you will explore elective units that focus on cyber security along with general ICT units with the assessments tailored towards Cybersecurity.

There's a skills shortage in cyber security workers, an area that provides interesting and challenging work, as well as high salary potential.  This course may help you build the foundational skills needed to find a career in cyber security.

This qualification reflects the role of individuals who are competent in a range of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) roles, including animation, basic cloud computing, basic cyber awareness, digital media skills, generalist IT support services, networking, programming, systems and web development.

Individuals who work in these fields apply broad sets of skills, including foundational knowledge in critical thinking and customer service skills, to support a range of technologies, processes, procedures, policies, people and clients in a variety of work contexts.

The course is offered online using a mix of a Learning Management System which holds the learning content, assessments, quizzes, activities and links to explanatory videos.  Each week Goanna will conduct two sessions using Microsoft Teams where the trainer will discuss a predetermined area of the course content and take questions.  These sessions along with other trainer explanations sessions will be recorded for students to access online in case they were unable to attend a session or wish to review.  Students will also be able to ask their trainer questions via email or book a one-to-one session with a trainer. You will also get links to free software or tools you may need to complete your course.

It is estimated that a student may take anywhere from 6 to 18 months to complete the Certificate III, working approximately 10 hours per week, depending on their existing skills, knowledge, and the amount of time they dedicate to the course. Students who have prior IT qualifications or industry experience may be able to finish the course in a shorter timeframe.
