About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

This micro-credential has been designed to meet the needs of two distinct learner groups who are preparing for a future career in the information technology (tech) industry:

- Learners in transition between school and tertiary study (including but not limited to school leavers).
- Mature adults planning a change of career pathway, who are aware about tech as a possible career but unsure about the opportunities and need to explore.

For both of those groups, the purpose of the micro-credential is to equip learners with the level of knowledge required to make informed decisions when planning their future tech industry careers.
