Study with IST for free
Interested in studying with us for free? Studying with Industry Skills Training for free has just become a whole lot easier! The Labor Government has just unveiled an extensive $57 million package for the training sector that will deliver free short courses and slash fees for thousands of people living in WA, as part of a state recovery plan.
As a result of COVID-19, we have seen a number of Australians lose their jobs and revamp their career. By upskilling employees in industries that are booming right now, this can boost workplace morale and increase levels of productivity.
