Thi Phuong Trang Luu, Certificate II in Information, Digital Media & Technology
What a great honour! I feel so excited that my hard work was recognised. Winning this award has inspired me to pursue goals that I initially thought I couldn’t obtain. I also feel more set in focusing on IT Networking.
I’m really grateful to my trainer Sathish Paluvadi. His explanations of illustrating difficult tasks with real-life scenarios has been helpful, and I credit his outstanding method of teaching, which led me to receive my award.
I'm currently still pursuing a Diploma of Information Technology Networking. I also had a job as a Technical Support Engineer for a Windows migration project. I assisted staff with technical support of computers, by diagnosing and resolving problems. I also provided support, setup, test and training of all workstations.
I really enjoyed my experience because I got to learn a lot. Not only that, I used some skills that I picked up from studying at RGIT.
What I feel most lucky about is that I am gaining specialist skills and employment opportunities that allow me to be part of an IT company anywhere in the world.
Hey RGIT, are you hiring?
