Australian ICT training firm sets up hub in PH
DDLS, a leading information and communications (ICT) technology and cybersecurity training business in Australia, has set up shop in the Philippines through a local venture backed by conglomerate Aboitiz Equity Ventures.
DDLS opened on February 20 its first training campus in BGC, Taguig, marking the group’s expansion into the Asia-Pacific.
The 500-square meter training facility consists of seven state-of-the-art training rooms, equipped with the latest technology as well as telepresence technology to help students and IT professionals master skill sets necessary to immediately enter the workforce.
“With DDLS present in every major city in Australia, we wanted to replicate this model in Southeast Asia, and the Philippines showed the most potential. Having skilled workers in the ICT industry who can monitor, secure and mitigate against any risks is a requirement that the industry has identified, and DDLS is responding to these needs by training the next generation of professionals in a new state-of-the-art facility,” Jon Lang, CEO of DDLS, said in a press statement on Friday.
“The Philippines campus was designed to be conducive for learning, to match the quality of instruction that our trainers are able to impart,” said Mike Calma, DDLS Philippines country general manager.
DDLS, a wholly-owned subsidiary of EdventureCo, teamed up with AEV to bring quality IT training to the Philippines.
