The Certificate IV in Cyber Security one of the courses funded by JobTrainer, meaning it could cost only $50 for eligible job seekers looking to develop new skills.

Eligible staff for the JobTrainer funding are as follows Level 1 IT support staff, staff who are looking to build on their IT background and take up the role in cyber security and non-IT staff who are passionate about pursuing a career change to cyber security. TAFE campuses offering this course are Bracken Ridge, Mt Gravatt, South Bank and Ipswich, with remote learning opportunities as well (online).

The course is designed to develop the technical skills needed to protect organisations against malicious cyber activity. According to the Australian Government’s Job Outlook service, the number of people working in ICT as security specialists grew exponentially over the last few years and is expected to grow even more in the future. Those who complete the course will be considered cyber security practitioners, and will have specialised skills in website security, IT network testing, and ICT security.
