I find that I frequently want to see the members of objects I am working with, and prefer to do this in a GridView. If, however, there are objects of different types in the collection there can be issues.  When simply  sending the collection to Get-Member there are separate results for each object type, but when then piping this to Out-GridView the member collections get merged in to one GridView.

To get around this I wrote my own cmdlet Out-MemberToGridView which launches a new GridView for each object type in the collection.

function Out-MemberToGridView{[CmdletBinding()]Param([parameter(ValueFromPipeline=$true)][Object]$inputObject,[string]$Title,[Switch]$Wait)

Begin{[String]$objectTypes = @()}Process{$objectTypeName = $PSItem.GetType().FullNameif (-not ($objectTypes.Contains($objectTypeName))){$objectTypes += $objectTypeNameif ([String]::IsNullOrEmpty($Title)){$GridTitle = $objectTypeName}else{$GridTitle = $Title}$PSItem | Get-Member | Out-GridView -Title $GridTitle -Wait:$Wait}}End{}}

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. According to the National Centre for Vocational Education Research, preference for accredited training courses has declined steadily in recent years, with employers increasingly less satisfied that these courses provide their employees with the most relevant and important skills for their business. This has led many organisations to preference non-accredited training provided by private technology vendors such as Microsoft and AWS.
