What's happening now...

Do you love growing things?

Do you like getting your hands dirty? Do you like being outdoors? Naturally! Then a school-based NSW Amenity Horticulture traineeship should be perfect for you. Come along to a showcase day at Andreasens Nursery, 1543 Elizabeth Drive, Kemps Creek on Wednesday, 28 November. Your questions will be answered. There will be hands-on workshops — nursery/plant production; green wall construction and irrigation; pathing construction; and a climbing arborist (that’s more of a demonstration). AND … lunch. BUT … you MUST book, you can’t just show up. Contact Suzanne.taylor22@det.nsw.edu.au — do it now.

Congratulations Suzette Po Williams, winner of the Outstanding Female Security Professional award

The Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OPSA) are set up in collaboration with security associations and groups across many countries. Suzette is pictured with Paul Haskell-Dowland, Associate Dean (Computing & Security) at Edith Cowan University, who presented the award. Suzette’s 25 year plus career at Central Monitoring Services has covered all aspects of security work. Without doubt, however, the highlight of her career was acting as the Project Development Officer for the CMS SHLV SOS Link Device. The device gives survivors of domestic violence immediate access to police assistance when outside the safety of their homes. The program is run in collaboration with Family and Community Services, NSW Police and NSW Police Link Command. ‘I believe very strongly in on-going professional development for the members of our industry and entry-level training that encourages new entrants to join our ranks and create career path for themselves,’ said Suzette.

Cyber security traineeship now a reality

The proposal for a Cyber Security Traineeship gained strong support from industry associations and employers and is now a reality. The new traineeship uses the accredited course 22334VIC Certificate IV in Cyber Security. Details are listed in the Commissioner’s Information Bulletin CIB 675. Essentially those who complete the traineeship become para-professionals in Cyber Security. The traineeship is seen an entry level to ICT with focus on the technical skills trainees will need to protect organisations against malicious cyber activity. The Certificate IV in Cyber Security will have widespread appeal to medium to large employers. Some of the future job roles could include: Cyber Security Support Officer, Security Penetration Tester, Information Systems Security Support Officer, Network Security Support Officer or Website Security Support Officer. In NSW the RTO currently able to deliver the qualification is TAFE NSW. http://ow.ly/GdDT30lEoaR
