Top 5 courses for the first half of the year

Getting up to speed with a framework or methodology is a great way for people to upskill and for businesses to create more effective staff, but it can be daunting to choose from the substantial array of courses.

To help you get started, we've put together a list of the five courses that should be considered in the first half of 2015. From ITIL to PRINCE2, it's time to become more capable.

ITIL Foundation

IT is a powerful area of business, and one with the ability to transform how companies work. Of course, it's never as easy as simply taking on a new technology.

ITIL is the best possible course of action as it's a widely accepted approach to service management that helps both individuals and organisations use IT for business transformation.

If you want to get started with ITIL, Foundation is the best possible introductory certification. ALC Training is hosting the necessary courses throughout key Australian cities from January 2015.

COBIT5 Foundation

While businesses may know how to implement IT and utilise effectively to transform operations, there's also a need to actually manage and govern the systems on a day to day basis.

COBIT5 is a great way for enterprises to do so, providing globally accepted principles and practices – as well as analytical tools – to increase trust in information systems. For companies holding back from IT it's an excellent framework to understand.

COBIT5 Foundation courses are being held in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Adelaide, providing a great starting point for companies and individuals wanting to start using the framework.

TOGAF 9 Level one and two certificate course

Improving business efficiency may sound a like a difficult task, especially in larger companies with hundreds of employees. However, it's actually far easier when handled through a methodology.

TOGAF9 offers the necessary knowledge for individuals and businesses, and it's used by organisations across the globe for exactly this purpose.

The Level one and two certificate course is an excellent starting point, taking participants through the basics of TOGAF9 and setting them up for future courses.

This course is being held in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth through until June.


Security has been quite a hot topic in recent years, especially as IT has continued to grow within the workplace. Now more than ever IT security needs to be a top priority, as the sheer amount of sensitive data at risk could mean severe breaches.

SABSA is an excellent solution to security concerns, as it's a proven way for individuals and businesses to implement strong security architectures. What's more, it can continually be used to effectively ensure business security.

Courses are being held in Sydney and Melbourne for the Foundation course – an excellent launching point for this capable framework.

PRINCE2 Foundation

Project management is something every business and individual is going to need at some point, whether it's for running a trade show, conference or internal project within the company. When it comes time to host such an endeavour having a strong framework is invaluable.

PRINCE2 Foundation is the best possible option for those needing a capable project management framework, as the course takes participants through the advanced PRINCE2 framework, which is designed specifically to ensure projects are handled correctly.

PRINCE2 courses are available in all major Australian cities throughout the first half of 2015.
