Fast Track Delivery of Critical Skills in ICT
On 16 June 2020 the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) endorsed fast-tracked ICT projects ‘Getting a job in IT’ and
‘Getting a better job in IT’. These projects received Ministerial endorsement on 14 July 2020. These fast-tracked projects responded to
industry’s need for short, industry relevant courses (skill sets) to assist in transitioning new workers into the ICT industry and upskilling
existing workers. The approved skill sets were created to cover skills in cloud computing, cyber security, data analytics and the internet
The ICT Industry Reference Committee (IRC) has created this Interpretation Guide (‘the Guide’) in relation to the five skill sets listed
● ICTSS00099 Cloud Design and Configuration Skill Set
● ICTSS00100 Cloud Implementation and Maintenance Skill Set
● ICTSS00101 Cyber Incident Response Skill Set
● ICTSS00102 Cyber Incident Threat Detection and Prevention Skill Set
● ICTSS00103 Cyber Security Strategy and Governance Skill Set.
The Guide was created to support registered training organisations (RTOs) use of these skill sets, through additional guidance for
creating course content and assessment plans. The use of these skill sets will support the ICT industry to respond quickly to areas of
critical workforce and skill needs in the recovery phase of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This Guide provides trainers and assessors delivering the above skill sets with insight from industry stakeholders, peak bodies, and
other RTOs that will assist in creating meaningful and effective support material. The Guide consists of notes and interpretations
relating to certain parts of units of competency within each skill set which may benefit from further clarification.
