According to a 2018 CSIRO report, Australia’s cybersecurity sector is set to triple its revenue to $6 billion over the coming decade, with the cybersecurity workforce also forecast to grow in excess of 60%, reaching 31,600 by 2026.

“Australia currently faces a critical skills shortage, with demand for qualified security specialists outstripping supply – something this partnership aims to rectify,” said Jon Lang, CEO of DDLS. “DDLS’s Cybersecurity offering is growing and will continue to be a big focus area for us into the future. We’re very excited to now have the ability to offer one of the world’s most highly regarded cybersecurity certifications to our Australian clients.”

“DDLS is a strong partner for promoting (ISC)²’s education program, which will provide more localized support for cybersecurity professionals seeking (ISC)² credentials in Australia,” said Clayton Jones, managing director, Asia-Pacific, (ISC)². “This new relationship will benefit cybersecurity professionals by offering them approved CISSP course materials, which will in turn better equip them to protect data, networks and infrastructure.”

(ISC)2 certifications confirm broad, comprehensive professional knowledge in the critical areas needed to develop and protect systems and data in current business and working environments. The five-day training course supports candidates’ pursuit of certification and is based on (ISC)2 education materials. Candidates who go on to pass an (ISC)2 examination and gain endorsement are granted membership to (ISC)2, continuing professional educational resources and the support of a global practicing community.

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.
