What participants say about Industry Placements

“I was interested in getting an entry-level IT certification, while also gaining work experience at a relevant company. This course allowed me to do both.”

“Before this opportunity, I was unsure on how my professional career would develop and what I would be doing after completing the Certificate IV. I now have employment and further study for the next 2 years and potentially a full-time position or university pathway after completion.”
