Gain the ICT skills you need for a career in the ICT sector

Combine work-based training as a workplace trainee in the ICT industry and learn the theoretical elements with formal training from Chisholm. Students must be employed within the ICT industry with a registered training contract between the employer and the trainee prior to enrolment. Traineeships are a great way to be paid for work, learn and earn a qualification.

Develop general information and communications technology (ICT) skills and prepare to advance your career in the field.

During the course, you will learn how to apply critical thinking to work processes; work collaboratively in the ICT industry; identify and evaluate emerging technologies; install hardware, deploy software; evaluate the characteristics of cloud computing solutions and services; apply introductory programming techniques; resolve client ICT problems and implement maintenance procedures. When you successfully complete the Certificate IV in Information Technology, you will have a broad range of skills in IT support.

Chisholm offer this option throughout Melbourne and some regional areas within Victoria. Please contact the department to find out more
