Academy IT Pty Ltd

Operating in South Australia for more than 15 years, Academy IT has a reputation for quality Information Technology (IT) face to face training.

When COVID hit, the company explored new content and delivery methods, and adapted to survive through offering online training that met Australian Quality Framework learning outcomes.

This increased flexibility around hybrid modalities, to include in-person, virtual, and self-paced online training.

Adapting to a virtual environment meant Academy IT could offer customised programs to employers and individuals.

It could reach people wishing to enter the IT workforce, as well as large international IT companies seeking expansion into South Australia to service local and international markets.

Currently delivering the Diploma of Nursing, Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing or Disability), and Certificate III and IV in Sterilisation Services, ANMEC is also building a demand-driven Professional Development Program focused on partner organisation requirements.
