AIICT currently offers three different courses that deal with skills in web development:

Certified Full Stack Developer

ICT40120 – Certificate IV in Information Technology (Web Development)

ICT50220 – Diploma of Information Technology (Back End Web Development)

Each program is made up of nationally recognised or internationally recognised certifications to help you gain the attention of potential employers.

Our Certified Full Stack Developer program is comprised of the globally-renowned Certified Entry-Level Python Programmer and DevOps Foundation certifications by the Python Institute and the DevOps Institute, respectively. Our certificate and diploma courses are nationally recognised, and can help you build the skills to advance your studies or land entry-level opportunities in the industry.

All are flexibly delivered online, allowing you to train at a time, place, and pace that suits you best. You’ll also get a chance to network with other like-minded individuals through our online portal, and gain access to our Industry Partner Program – a membership that helps link you to potential employers and offers you further career advice through your employment journey in web development.

Successful website developers need a balance of both hard and soft skills to advance in the industry.

On the technical side, sought-after web developers typically fare best with a “full-stack” knowledge of the field, as this grants them a complete, comprehensive understanding of the entire development process. As such, they can carry out both front and back-end tasks when the situation calls for it.

All web developers are also recommended to train in cyber security – as this field deals with the crucial practice of securing website data, systems, and networks from existing and emerging online threats. With cyber crimes rising at an exponential rate each year, the tools and knowledge of reliable IT security will grow ever-more invaluable.

Additionally, sound knowledge and experience in online marketing can help web developers rank their sites higher in search engines. This area includes skills in search engine optimisation (SEO), copywriting, and a familiarity with social media.

Of course, soft skills in communication, critical thinking, analysis, and creativity are also highly valued. The best web developers have a keen ability to work and share ideas with others; a sharp eye for the fine details; and the drive to innovate and think out-of-the-box.

Aspiring web developers typically require a formal qualification or two to find employment in this field. According to Labour Market Insights, these can include credentials in web design, digital media, digital design, and other related sectors. While university degrees are a common study pathway, vocational education and training (VET) courses are also a popular choice – providing students with a highly flexible, affordable option towards building the skills they need.

AIICT offers such courses at varying skill levels (boot camp, certificate, and diploma-level training), comprised of widely recognised qualifications to help you stand out in the job market.

However, training web developers are also recommended to pursue their own personal projects – helping them build and explore their skills through practical experience. Internships are also an effective way of achieving this, helping you apply your training to an actual workplace environment, while building your connections with new peers and potential employers in the industry.

The Federal Government has developed a system called the Unique Student Identifier (USI) to help Australian students' gain access to their results when they complete a nationally recognised course, or part thereof. The USI is generated online, does not cost anything and will be recorded whenever you enrol in a nationally recognised VET course.
