Programming Courses

Programming courses

Do you like figuring out how things work? Are you both a creative and analytical thinker? Are you interested in working in the information technology (IT) industry? A programming course can open the door for you into the wonderful world of computer science, coding, web development, cybersecurity and more. 

What is programming?

Programming is everywhere — in all artificial intelligence, web development, app development, video games, mobile apps and more. It’s an essential part of any IT worker’s job as it is the set of instructions given to a computer to execute its functions properly. Programming languages, or code, is used across the industry, particularly in software development.

Programmers use a range of programming languages such as:

  • Javascript
  • Html
  • Python
  • SQL
  • CSS

Programmers are creative thinkers. As there is no one “right way” to program software and operating systems, programmers constantly experiment with new code to minimise issues, maximise output and quicken the reaction time. Programmers are constantly debugging, problem-solving and creating to give real-world users the best front-end experience.

Programming job outlook in Australia

The world is steadily becoming more automated, with AI a regular occurrence in day-to-day business. As such, the demand for workers with extensive programming skills is dramatically increasing in Australia. According to Job Outlook, employment opportunities for software and application programmers are expected to rise by 24% by 2024. Most of these jobs will be in the professional, scientific and technical services industries. 

Most programmers work full-time, with very few choosing to take on only part-time hours. The average salary for a full-time programmer is approximately $104,000

As to be expected with the higher than average income, programmers in Australia are also highly educated. 55.9% of programmers hold a Bachelor degree, with a further 25.6% holding a postgraduate qualification.

Career outcomes for the programming industry

Computer programming courses can lead you to several exciting career pathways such as:

  • Software developer
  • Computer programmer
  • Game programmer and software developer
  • Database and big data manager
  • Front and back end web developer 
  • System analyst

Different types of programming courses

From short courses to bachelor degrees, training.com.au has a range of related programming qualifications provided by trusted providers all across Australia

Choosing a qualification will depend on your career goal and study commitment abilities. Short courses tend to focus on one specific skill, such as DevOps or Python programming, while Certificate and Diploma qualifications cover a much broader range of skills. 

As most of our qualifications are online courses, you’re flexible to study from wherever you need to be, without the hassle of travelling to and from class.

Certificate

Certificate-level qualifications (Certificate III or Certificate IV) will teach the essential basics of computer programming. You’ll become knowledgeable in the core programming languages, machine learning and the foundations of data science. You will also learn how to test, diagnose and debug all manners of systems, programs and applications. This qualification will ensure you land yourself an entry-level programming role in the industry.

Diploma

Those looking to develop their skills even further should consider investing in a Diploma of Information Technology (Advanced Programming). Here you will tackle topics ranging from object-oriented language skills, testing techniques, and application monitoring processes right through to the art of creating cloud computing services for modern enterprises. Best of all, you’ll emerge with the skills to manage a wide variety of ICT projects and will be ready to thrive in roles such as assistant software applications programmer and web support programmer.

Bachelor degree

To really achieve deep learning of everything programming has to offer, you might consider completing a Bachelor degree qualification. These in-depth programs can take up to four years of full-time study to complete. This degree covers everything from programming principles, systems analysis, and database management to the latest IT security and internet technologies developments.

If you want the skills, knowledge and confidence to use code to create, fix and discover to your heart’s content, then a programming course is a must! Whether for professional or personal reasons, anyone interested in computer science should ensure programming knowledge is in their tool belt.
