Cyber security traineeship now a reality

The proposal for a Cyber Security Traineeship gained strong support from industry associations and employers and is now a reality. The new traineeship uses the accredited course 22334VIC Certificate IV in Cyber Security. Details are listed in the Commissioner’s Information Bulletin CIB 675. Essentially those who complete the traineeship become para-professionals in Cyber Security. The traineeship is seen an entry level to ICT with focus on the technical skills trainees will need to protect organisations against malicious cyber activity. The Certificate IV in Cyber Security will have widespread appeal to medium to large employers. Some of the future job roles could include: Cyber Security Support Officer, Security Penetration Tester, Information Systems Security Support Officer, Network Security Support Officer or Website Security Support Officer. In NSW the RTO currently able to deliver the qualification is TAFE NSW. http://ow.ly/GdDT30lEoaR

Which school subjects should you choose?

These flyers are suitable for both school-based apprenticeships or post-school apprenticeships. Each flyer sets out a possible career path for the student and then suggests the elective subjects that will make that career path possible. The subject lists cover choices in years 9 & 10 and 11 & 12. The flyers are designed to make sourcing information easy for careers advisers too. Each flyer features a strong, identifiable image that indicates each type of apprenticeship. Laid out side by side, comparisons between subject choices are simple.

If you’re interested in the same sort of flyers for the Construction, Plumbing, Signs & Graphics, Painting & Decorating and Fire Sprinkler Fitting industry sectors, you’ll find them at the Apprenticeship Engagement Forum website
