Green ICT ACS & TAFE NSW, 17th November 2008

The Australian Computer Society and TAFE NSW are having a free Green ICT event, 17th November 2008 in Sydney, with TAFE detailing their new ICT sustainability courses: "How will the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme affect me, my job and my business?":
Two polls taken in 2008 show that while well over 70% of the population agree that Australia should act now to on climate change less than 10% understand the Australian government’s master plan for tackling climate change, the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme, and how it will affect businesses and individuals.

This presentation will provide a Plain English overview of the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme, its effects on businesses and individuals and hints on how you can act now to reduce its impacts on you and your business.

You will also hear about the new Accredited TAFE course starting in Feb 2009 "Sustainability in ICT Systems"

As with all TAFE courses you gain not only Technical knowledge but the practical backup.

The modules are:-
  1. Install and Test Power Saving Hardware
