Registered Training Organisation Kneedeep has worked with specialists at VIPAC Engineers & Scientists to develop the Defence-focused Diploma of Project Management.

With South Australian Defence contracts in the spotlight, two local companies have collaborated to offer industry-specific training to companies wanting to work in the State’s Defence industry.

Registered Training Organisation Kneedeep has worked with specialists at VIPAC Engineers & Scientists to develop the Defence-focused Diploma of Project Management.

KneeDeep Managing Director Henrietta Child says that the new diploma will equip Defence Teaming Centre members and others to meet the challenges of the Defence environment and gain nationally recognised accreditation.

“We have found a unique balance of academic learning, environmental context, and ‘defence survival skills’ with just a few war stories from those who have 30 years’ experience in the Industry,” Ms Child says.

“This is an exciting nationally recognised fundable diploma level training program for companies wanting to work more successfully in the defence industry.

“This specific Defence program will provide practical guidance, contemporary examples and ‘on ground’ experience of defence acquisition and modification projects in the Australian context.”

As an RTO and a consultancy with a strong capability in project management, KneeDeep brings existing programs and training capability to the partnership.

VIPAC contributes its long history and specialist experience in running projects from both sides of the Defence Materiel and Support Organisations and across the Capital Project Acquisition and overall Capability Development life cycle. VIPAC is very familiar with post-graduate and undergraduate training environments being accredited in Defence (Army) for Vocational Education and Training, regularly lecturing in Defence and commercial training programs, and at selected national universities.

“VIPAC has a long history of supporting major Defence projects over three decades, with a unique depth and breadth of technical expertise and practical experience,” says Jeff Walsh, VIPAC Principal Engineer for Defence Systems. “Kneedeep and VIPAC share a common focus on delivering practical outcomes through good situational awareness, strong task planning and efficient resource allocation.”
