Sydney, Australia 12 August 2014 – DDLS, Australia’s leading IT Training Provider, has acquired ITIL® courseware and other Intellectual Property from ProActive Services. ProActive Services entered voluntary liquidation on May 6, 2014 and a sale process of IP was conducted. ProActive had operated in Australia for 25 years delivering ITIL training and consulting.

Mal Shaw, CEO of DDLS, said “DDLS has delivered ITIL, PRINCE2® and Business Analysis training at our six facilities in Australia for many years. We have expanded these offerings to include training in Project, Program & Portfolio Management, AgilePM, COBIT®, Facilitation and other related courses. In ITIL we are seeing increased demand which we believe reflects our clients’ move to Cloud Computing and their need for Best Practice frameworks to manage this transition. This acquisition expands the ITIL training services that we offer”.

DDLS will incorporate the courseware, simulations, assessment tools, consulting IP and other materials, that it has acquired from ProActive, into its offerings over the coming months.

Mal continued “DDLS strives to deliver high-quality training to our corporate and government clients and this shows in our high pass rates for student certification. We invite former clients of ProActive Services to continue their ITIL learning journey with DDLS.”

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.
