As the Federal and State Governments ease restrictions, DDLS is pleased to announce a gradual return to face-to-face training. A schedule of the limited public classroom training will be made available over the coming weeks and on-demand classroom courses will also be made available to organisations who request this. In addition to the face-to-face training, DDLS will continue to offer comprehensive Virtual Instructor-Led Training until further notice.

To ensure our campuses are safe for all students, employees and visitors, we have developed a COVID-19 Safety Plan which includes modifications to our on-campus course delivery in order to adhere to social distancing and hygiene regulations. Our extensive safety protocols are listed below and a full copy of our COVID-19 Safety Plan can be provided on request.

On-campus Safety Measures

  • All DDLS facilities meet the Australian Government regulation by allowing 4 square metres of space for each person

  • Students attending courses in person are now seated at least 1.5m apart and the maximum number of participants per class has been reduced to allow for social distancing regulations. Students are required to maintain social distancing regulations at all times.

  • Upon entering a DDLS facility, contactless temperature checks will be conducted

  • We have introduced a no handshake policy

  • An increased number of hand sanitiser stations have been placed around each campus and rubbish bins are provided in each classroom

  • We will continue with our increased cleaning regime across all campus facilities

  • We are not currently providing catered lunches at any of our campuses. We will provide lunch food vouchers if suitable at nearby food venues as available. Refreshments including tea and coffee will continue to be available.

  • Breaks have been staggered to minimise people in communal hospitality areas

  • We have placed additional signage around each campus to remind students and employees on social distancing and hygiene best practice

  • We encourage everyone attending a DDLS campus to download the Australian Government CovidSafe App

As per the Government’s current guidelines and for the safety of all students and staff we ask:

  • If you are displaying any flu-like symptoms – no matter how mild – we request that you do not attend classes at any DDLS campus.

  • If you have been in close contact with a proven case of Coronavirus, we ask that you do not attend a DDLS campus for 14 days from the date of last contact with the confirmed case.

  • If you have been overseas, we ask that you do not attend a DDLS campus for 14 days from the date of arrival in Australia.

If any of these scenarios apply, you may still attend the course, via our VIRTUAL REMOTE offering where available.

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.
