But how do you become an IT specialist without a degree? Well, it’s not as difficult as you may think.

Get qualified

The first step towards a career as an IT specialist is to get the right qualification to give you the knowledge and skills you need to succeed. The good news is it doesn’t need to take years of studying at university with seemingly endless textbooks and assignments to get the qualification you need.

At TrainSmart Australia, we offer a 1-year ICT50118 Diploma of Information Technology course and a 1-year ICT50418 Diploma of Information Technology Networking course that are both designed to equip you with the in-depth IT knowledge and skills you need to become a qualified IT professional, while giving you the freedom and flexibility to study online – when and where it suits you.

Which course is right for me?

If you have limited IT knowledge and are keen to learn about a wide range of Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), our Diploma of Information Technology is the perfect choice.

Through the course, you’ll learn how to successfully provide a broad range of IT support to small-to-medium businesses. You’ll also develop a strong foundation in computing, hardware, multimedia technologies, and operating and network systems.

If you’re looking to develop your IT networking skills and knowledge specifically, then our Diploma of Information Technology Networking course is the best choice. With networking being one of the fastest-growing areas of IT, the course will give you the essential knowledge and skills you need to successfully manage the installation of networks, cybersecurity and e-business integration.

Whichever course you choose, at the end of your studies you’ll be well-prepared for an exciting, challenging and well-paid career in one of the most high-demand industries in the global job market – Information Technology.
