Highlights

  • Intake 2 of the Australian Defence Force Cyber Gap Program will begin in February, with 287 carefully selected, eager participants being upskilled and trained in the cyber domain.
  • ADFCGP partners with Cybermerc.
  • Participants are receiving a 12-month professional membership to the Australian Computer Society (ACS).

The Program aims to train 800 cyber experts as part of a $41 million Government initiative. The Australian Government has asked Defence to provide leadership in uplifting Australia’s national cyber workforce through the Program, where benefits flow to Defence and our nation.

This year the Program has partnered with Cybermerc, who will be delivering the cyber skills modules and challenges for participants to enhance their cyber skills in coding, platform development, cyber training and more.

User Acceptance Testing on Cybermerc’s Learning Management System is currently underway. 

Participants are receiving a 12-month professional membership to the Australian Computer Society (ACS). ACS certifications are essential in supporting the development and recognition of our Australian sovereign cyber workforce.
