Recent changes to the ICT Training Package has seen the ICT50715 Diploma of Software Development superseded by an equivalent qualification, ICT50718 Diploma of Software Development.
Whilst ICT50718 Diploma of Software Development has been added to the College’s scope of registration, enrolments are yet to commence. As such, students are permitted to continue enrolling into the 2015 version ICT50715 Diploma of Software Development). Students must be aware that they will be transitioned to the 2018 version (ICT50718 Diploma of Software Development) before 29/01/2020* unless they complete/cancel the course before that date. The effect of this change to their studies will be minimal, and the resulting qualification will meet all requirements for accredited training so the same level of qualification will be achieved. If you have any questions regarding this topic, please contact our Course Consultants for further information.
* Please note that this date is the last day in which certification can be issued. As such, an earlier date to complete may be issued by the Faculty.
