TAFE New South Wales yesterday responded to significant growth in the cyber-security industry by signing a Memorandum of Understanding with the Box Hill Institute of TAFE in Victoria to deliver cyber-security courses in New South Wales from next year.

Certificate IV and Advanced Diploma courses were developed in Victoria and are being adopted by TAFE New South Wales which will be offered to students in 2018 for the first time.

Minister responsible for TAFE New South Wales Adam Marshall said it was encouraging to see TAFE New South Wales responding to market demand and providing quality training to students in this emerging field.

 

“Cybercrime is a growing threat that has created unprecedented demand for professionals who can secure and monitor IT systems and protect personal and organisational privacy.” Minister Marshall said.

“New South Wales Government is delivering the skilled workforce for the future by making students employment-ready in rapidly growing industries such as cyber-security.”

“TAFE New South Wales offers practical, industry-led and accredited training with the New South Wales Government offering a range of financial assistance to those who want to gain in demand qualifications.”

“This course has had great success in Victoria and is accredited by the Australian Skills Quality Authority, and will bring much needed talent and skills to the New South Wales economy.” Minister Marshall said.
