Develop a basic understanding of Internet of Things (IoT) with the Introduction to Internet of Things short course at Victoria University Polytechnic.

This course will be delivered online in a combination of self paced learning with two instructor-led sessions. Participants will receive their login details to the Learning Management System prior to course commencement.

This introduction to Internet of Things (IoT) short course uses the Cisco Network Academy 'Introduction to IoT' program. It will provide you with a basic understanding of IoT, including:

  • what the Internet of Things is
  • how it affects business processes
  • the digital transformation across all industries.

Join a growing industry

The recent move to remote, digital work due to COVID-19 has pushed the need for rapid digital transformation across multiple industries and organisations at a national and global level.

Post COVID-19, digitally supported remote-work practices are to become more common place, and have driven the need to have an increased understanding of cyber safety, both personal and professional.

On top of this, the cybersecurity industry is growing rapidly, with the ITPA report estimating Australia would need another 11,000 Cybersecurity specialists over the next decade.

Learning outcomes

This introduction to Internet of Things (IoT) short course utilises the Cisco Network Academy 'Introduction to IoT' program to provide participants with a basic understanding of IoT, including what it is and how it affects business processes and digital transformation across all industries.

Participants will work through the Cisco learning resources, let by a qualified Certified Cisco Academy Instructor (CCAI) from VU Polytechnic. Upon completion of the program individuals will have an increased understanding of how IoT is bridging the gap between operations and IT systems, how standard business processes are being transformed, basic security concerns that need to be considered when implementing IoT solutions and how digital transformation is creating a boom in economic opportunity. These learnings will broaden an individual's organisational awareness and allow them to join in discussion regarding IoT concepts.

This program is delivered over two (2) weeks with access to a one (1) hour facilitated interactive webinar weekly. The webinar sessions are recorded to enable participates to allow flexibility for the learner to complete the online material.
