IT Training Is Supported by Tafe Gippsland and Aussie Broadband

IT Training Is Supported by Tafe Gippsland and Aussie Broadband

An accredited vocational training course – Certificate III in Information Technology – will be a nine-month course set to begin this April at Tafe Gippsland’s Yallourn campus.

Tafe Gippsland director educational delivery Linda Austin welcomed the training course and the partnership with Aussie Broadband to support students enrolling in the vocational training course.

“This is a Free Tafe course offered face-to-face with one day online, and it focuses on customer service, web development, programming and editing computer software, with graduates very likely to be highly valued and sought after by employers.”

Austin says the institute was very fortunate to have a partner to support this vocational training stream.

Aussie Broadband learning and development manager Claire Morrisey says they were excited to partner with Tafe Gippsland.

“As a Morwell-founded and based tech company, Aussie Broadband has been campaigning to bring certificate-level IT courses back to the Gippsland region for several years,” Morrissey says.

“We’re also excited to continue partnering with Tafe Gippsland as they expand their IT offerings, and help IT students see what they can be.”

Morrisey says graduates of the courses will be able to help different industries.

“We’re thrilled that Tafe Gippsland is starting this journey with their Cert III in IT and, in our increasingly digital world, IT literacy has never been more important across Gippsland and right across the national and international digital learning environment.”

The first course begins with Term 2 on Wednesday 27 April 2022. Enrolments are still open and you can secure your place by calling Tafe Gippsland on 1300 475 146 or going to the website.
