The Associate Diploma is more broad-based in content than the Diploma, covering practical application of Technical Support concepts, including an underpinning understanding of principles relevant to Technical Support, documentation, networking and system management. The Associate Diploma is a prerequisite for the Diploma but can also be a “‘standalone” qualification for trainees who do not wish to progress to the Diploma but want to enter the labor market with valuable set of skills, knowledge and competencies at a lower level. The Diploma is more specialized, providing opportunities for trainees to develop and demonstrate skills in specific areas, with pathways in Network Support and System Support. Trainees successful in the Diploma should be able to enter the labor market in operational IT support roles.
