Courses launched to increase space sector business knowledge
Australian professional services provider Nova Systems is offering a series of short training courses aimed at businesses in the space sector.
Nova Systems Australia and New Zealand chief executive Steven Robinson said the growing space industry represented a significant opportunity for Australians to pursue a career and explore pathways in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
He said Nova Systems’ specialist capability training aims to encourage and support future space engineers, leaders and entrepreneurs.
“We are excited and honoured to be part of the driving force supporting the growth and competitiveness of the Australian space sector,” Robinson said.
“Providing specialist training and support to Australian industry and government will continue to enhance our nation’s capability and contribute to the generation of jobs, innovation and growth within the Australian economy.
