How it works?
You work through 3 tiers throughout the program. You must pass each tier before you progress to the next.
Students who have little to no work experience in Australia, we advise a 12 month long program as you would need to build a portfolio of soft and technical skills.
For more advanced students who have worked in IT (local and overseas), have passed English skills test such as IELST/PTE level 8 (or equivalent) you would probably benefit from a shorter more intense program.
The program consists of three tiers.
Each tier must be completed before progressing to the next.
Tier 3: Modules
100% Remote working
Length to complete is approximately 1 to 3 months, depending on the individual pace.
The modules tier is a theoretical component which consist of videos and activities. You must pass all modules progressivley, in other words you can not skip modules as they build on each other.
