At our Perth campus you'll gain the knowledge and skills to develop advanced Apps, Internet of Things, Big Data, database design, Cloud Applications Development, and cyber awareness using a variety of programming software and platforms such as PHP, Python and C#. You'll also be developing advanced programming skills with Cloud/mobile devices as this has been identified as a growth area by industry.

At our Joondalup campus you will embrace new technologies and develop skills in Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Games Development, Mobile Applications and Advanced Apps, Internet of Things and Robotics using Python, C# and Unity.

You will use current industry standards and emerging technology as you conduct LiveWorks projects with industry partners.

Independent thinking and problem-solving skills developed within your studies at Certificate IV level are further enhanced with real life client projects. 

Our IT graduates are confident, job ready and sought after by industry because of the specific skills gained during their study at North Metropolitan TAFE and many find employment by the time they graduate.

I have attended the end of year graduations of students from North Metropolitan TAFE for the Cert IV in Programming, Cert IV in Web Based Technologies, Diploma of Software Development and Diploma of Website Development. As part of the experience, I see their end of year projects demonstrated and have the opportunity to question them on what they have built and the extent of their knowledge. Those students are Industry ready. I have attended for at least the past fours years, probably longer, and continue to be impressed with what I see. The courses get stronger each year, and the students graduating have a lot to offer.
