Our diploma is delivered online through a mix of vendor specific, vendor neutral, and trainer-developed materials, addressing specific topics in the designing, building, and testing of network servers; the designing and implementing security perimeters; and the management of such systems. Apart from technical skills training, students will also learn the basics of disaster recovery, WHS, and the privacy, ethics, and copyright within an ICT environment.
This course uses a blend of vendor specific, vendor neutral, and trainer-developed materials.
The standard course is conducted over a 12 month period; within a self-paced online learning environment.
Upskilled will gather information about your previous experience and skills, weekly study commitment and online learning experience to provide you with an projected duration for your course based on your individual circumstance.
