Leveraging 20 years of strategic and advisory services to Australian Federal Government departments and the private sector.

DDLS, Australia’s largest provider of corporate IT and process training, has expanded its business operations with the launch of its new advisory consultancy brand, DDLS People.

The new business unit builds off DDLS’ 20-year history of delivering complex logistics and supply chain projects, as well as learning and development activities to the Australian government, primarily the Department of Defence.

DDLS People will continue to provide these services to the Department of Defence, while increasing and improving its offering to include strategic advisory and project management services. The new investment is aimed at expanding the company’s reach into the greater public sector, as well as private enterprises.

Jon Lang, CEO of DDLS commented, “This is an exciting step for DDLS as we continue to expand our reach into strategic advisory services. The launch of DDLS People is our commitment to innovate the way we service our clients with skilled consultancy. DDLS People has a long and established history working with the Department of Defence and a range of Government organisations and corporations to deliver successful programs and outcomes.”

DDLS People provides services to some of the largest agencies within the Department of Defence and has a solid track record of delivering results with commitment and passion over two decades. Since its inception, DDLS People has delivered over 200 Defence projects and upwards of 1,000 logistics systems training courses per year, to organisations such as the Navy, Army and Air Force.

“We help organisations test and implement a range of project and program management methodologies depending on their businesses requirements. These methodologies drive a path towards workflow optimisation to improve business productivity and profitability, while ensuring compliance. We also develop large-scale customised training programs for organisations and deliver these via flexible modalities including face-to-face classroom learning and more recently a virtual classroom model to facilitate remote learning,” added Karen Smith, DDLS People Account Director.

Our AIICT brand expands portfolio with ten new courses to help address ICT skills shortage
The Australian Institute of ICT (AIICT) has introduced a new series of industry certified bootcamp programs and nationally-recognised qualifications to meet the surging demand for skilled ICT professionals in Australia.  The bootcamps support the Morrison Government’s recently announced Digital Skills Organisation (DSO) pilot, which recognises the importance of non-accredited training to support the development of skills of the future workforce. The bootcamp programs run for six months and comprise of several vendor-specific certifications. The courses include ‘Cloud Computing Certified Professional’, ‘Certified Microsoft Full Stack Developer’, ‘Certified Artificial Intelligence Professional’, ‘Growth Marketing Professional’ and ‘Certified Project Management Professional’. The decision to introduce the bootcamps follows the VET sector’s increasing move away from nationally recognised qualifications to vendor-specific, industry-certified training.
