The training courses are designed to span across the entire spectrum of skills requirements and will assist staff in gaining the relevant skills needed for career development and progression.

The new partnership is aimed at leveraging Sayres and UTS’ respective wealth of knowledge in defence training and tertiary education. 

Commenting on working alongside UTS, Sayres Australia chief executive officer Craig Powell is keen to deliver high-end technical training to the Defence and government sectors, particularly in the highly sought after and rapidly developing cyber and artificial intelligence domains.

“This partnership brings a synergy of Sayres’ extensive defence training experience with UTS’ tertiary education systems to provide an end-to-end training solution in key capabilities for Defence and government.

“Delighted to be partnering with Sayres to empower current Defence personnel to gain the skills and training relevant to prepare them for their constantly evolving professional landscape.
