Celebrating 30 Years of ALC Training: A Legacy of Excellence and Innovation

For three decades, since March 1994, ALC Training has been at the forefront of delivering industry-leading certification training and setting benchmarks in customer service excellence. As we celebrate our 30th anniversary, we reflect on the journey that has brought us to this milestone and look forward to the exciting opportunities ahead.

Pioneering Project Management and IT Service Management

Since the very beginning ALC has been dedicated to providing top-tier project management training. In 1999, we introduced PRINCE2® certification courses to our portfolio, becoming a pioneer in delivering this globally recognised project management methodology. Additionally, we are the longest-serving provider of ITIL® training in the Asia-Pacific region, having launched ITIL in Singapore and Malaysia in 1998 and in Australia the year after.


Trailblazing in Technology Education

In 2007, ALC made history by holding the world’s first SABSA® Foundation Certificate course in Sydney, showcasing our commitment to staying at the forefront of emerging technologies and methodologies. In 2015, we further solidified our reputation for innovation by offering the first DevOps certificate training in the Asia-Pacific region, empowering professionals with the skills needed to thrive in the rapidly evolving tech landscape.


Driving Internet Understanding and Adoption

ALC has played a pivotal role in driving internet understanding and adoption in Australia. In the 1990s, we organised pioneering seminars such as “Connecting to the Internet” in 1994 and “Ecommerce Strategies” in 1998, laying the groundwork for the digital transformation that would follow in the decades to come. These initiatives underscore our commitment to not only providing training but also fostering a deeper understanding of emerging technologies and their implications.


Achieving Elite Plus Partner Status with ISACA

In 2024, ALC Training reached another significant milestone by becoming the first Accredited Training Organisation to obtain ISACA Elite Plus partner status in Australia. This prestigious recognition reflects our unwavering dedication to maintaining the highest standards of quality and expertise in the field of cybersecurity and governance.

Joining Forces with Tesserent: A New Chapter of Growth and Innovation

In March 2023, ALC Training embarked on an exciting new chapter by becoming part of the Tesserent Group of companies as the first key step of the new Tesserent Academy. This strategic acquisition marks a significant milestone in our journey and opens up a world of opportunities for both ALC and Tesserent. This was further enhanced in September, 2023 when Tesserent was acquired by Thales, a major global technology leader with more than 77,000 staff on five continents.

The mission statement of the Tesserent Academy is to be the pre-eminent provider of cybersecurity education in the Asia-Pacific region. ALC, with its very strong background of 30 years in information and cybersecurity training, has provided Tesserent Academy with an immediate and commanding position in this sector. This union of expertise and resources positions us as a formidable force in the cybersecurity education landscape.

By joining Tesserent/Thales, ALC gains access to a much greater range of resources, paving the way for unprecedented growth and innovation. The focus will be on portfolio expansion, the development of new skills-based programs, and the creation of new certifications relevant to our region. Together, we are poised to shape the future of cybersecurity education and empower professionals with the skills needed to navigate an increasingly complex threat landscape.


Embracing the Future Together

As we celebrate 30 years of ALC Training and integrate into the Tesserent/Thales family, we remain committed to our core values of excellence, integrity and customer satisfaction. Our shared vision and complementary strengths position us for success as we work towards our common goal of empowering individuals and organisations with the knowledge and skills needed to thrive in a digital world. 

We are immensely proud of our accomplishments and grateful to our clients, partners and team members who have been instrumental in what has been achieved to date. We look forward to building on this legacy and to continue shaping the future of certification training in the years to come.
