NZQA Category 1 Provider

 Since 2004, Techtorium (with the help of our industry partners) has inspired kiwis to join the ICT industry, and for this reason, we have gained Category 1 Provider status in recognition of our successful course completions. Our modern open-plan floor layout fosters critical thinking and provides a “free” learning environment where students can thrive. Our industry trainers carefully monitor each student to ensure consistent learning outcomes and guide them towards suitable roles in the industry. Furthermore, our team of Industry Pathways Managers are actively working with New Zealand’s most innovative IT companies, enabling Techtorium students to be first in line for entry-level roles.

Message from the Managing Director:

Deciding on what direction to guide your career is both exciting and challenging. We spend a lot of time at work in our lifetimes – so it’s important for you to make well informed decisions about how to spend your time and money in this phase of your career as a student. Tertiary education is an investment, not only for yourself, but for your family. It is an investment that will allow you to grow you as a person and change the way you think. It is an investment that will present opportunities to you for the rest of your working career.

Globally, the Information Technology industry is expanding so rapidly that it is becoming increasingly difficult for IT employers to find appropriately trained employees to fill the demand – from entry level through to IT Architect roles. This is also the case in New Zealand.

For more than 10 years Techtorium has challenged the way people learn about the digital landscape. In collaboration with our industry advisory group, my team of industry experienced trainers and I have designed practical computer engineering, networking and server courses that offer students a clear pathway into the industry.

Techtorium graduates have a critical understanding of IT and only receive their diploma when I am fully satisfied that they have the skills and attributes to hit the ground running in their first positions in this exciting industry.

For those of you who have enrolled at Techtorium; I would like to welcome you to the first step in your IT career and wish you all the best for you studies. We are behind you all the way so know that your success is our success. For those who are considering a tertiary education at Techtorium, this prospectus should serve as a guide, assisting you in making the right career decision about where, what, and how to focus your career in this exciting industry.
