Australian Digital and Telecommunications Industry Association Inc
ADTIA was established in 2010 for the Digital and Telecommunication industry as a member based industry association to promote best practice in the industry through technical standards, workforce development, skills training and quality assurance processes.
ADTIA works closely with its organisational members, networks, technical committees, Governments and other stakeholders to implement strategies within the ICT industry. ADTIA emphases’ is on Knowledge, Opportunity and Growth for the Industry and its workers.
Workplace health and safety aspect of the work being done and the quality of installations within the premises are important areas not just by the worker but also for the customer. ADTIA members and industry are supportive of making the industry safer for all workers and customers, and ADTIA and its industry members are willing to assist in whatever capacity to achieve this outcome.
ADTIA is a key player in the Telecommunications infrastructure rollout program including the National Broadband Network (NBN), IP networks and the convergence of these technologies in Customer Premises, mobile telephony, wireless and complex building cabling. ADTIA was the industry association engaged by the Digital Switchover Taskforce to assist with the rollout of the analogue to digital national project.
The proposed Multi Technologies Mix to be used for the Broadband Network into homes and businesses will provide a broad based model to support a Digital Economy in which technology devices will continue to evolve and require technicians to support installations and upgrades.
The digital revolution that is occurring will include the concept of smart cities that are more sustainable, efficient and supportive of citizens. With the expansion of the digital age through Governments, industries, internet services and knowledge flow, there will be a greater requirement for technicians to be trained and provided with workforce development as our technology changes.
