Dialog Academy

Dialog Group Academy

Dialog Information Technology is known across Australia for its ability to undertake IT projects of any size, in any industry with any technologies. The key to Dialog’s success is its highly skilled professional consultants.

Continually enhancing the skills of Dialog consultants is paramount to Dialog’s success. To achieve this Dialog created the Dialog Group Academy.

The Dialog Group Academy offers a range of online courses, in-house workshops and other learning media to Dialog consultants. Content and exams are sourced from external training organisations (such as skillsoft.com and YellowHouse) and from internal sources.
