I've been a tradie most of my life and decided I wanted a change. I saw an ad for CTIA and their Cyber Security course and figured why not. I really enjoyed the content and learnt a lot. After some help from their career advisor, I'm now working for a small business taking care of their cyber security and really enjoying it.
I previously worked in an administrative role for my company, but I love numbers and really wanted to find a job I was passionate about. I didn’t want to leave my current employer because they really look after us, and then we found out about the government funding. They put me through CTIA’s Data Analyst course and now I’m in a job I love AND I got to stay with my company.
I’ve always been a creative person but being a mum, I had to make sure my kids came first so wasn’t in a job I really enjoyed. Now they’ve grown up, I decided it was time to find my passion. A friend told me about CTIA and their Full Stack Developer course and I’m absolutely loving it! I can’t wait to finish and finally find a job I love!
