Box Hill Institute

Box Hill Institute has launching Victoria's first vocational qualification in cyber security - Certificate IV in IT (specialising in cyber security). The qualification has been developed in conjunction with industry experts in cyber security from Australia's leading internet service providers, banks, security companies, telecommunications and information technology organisations.

This qualification can also be undertaken as a traineeship and is supported by the State Government's Back to Work Funds Project (BTW). The BTW funding can provide significant financial incentives for employers taking on new workers as trainees. Students with a higher qualification may still be eligible for the Victorian Training Guarantee (VTG) Funding.
This hands-on qualification will allow participants to gain practical knowledge in the following areas:

  • Communications Skills
  • Working with Teams
  • Basic Networking
  • System Testing


  • Programming Security Scripts
  • Website Security
  • Network Security
  • Managing System Security


Trainees would be required to undertake a 4 week intensive training at the Institute which would then drop to 4 days per week at work and 1 day per week training at the Institute. When at work, trainees would need to be supervised by an experienced IT professional in conjunction a member of the Institute's IT and Security teaching team.
