Providing all your face-to-face training needs...


We pride ourselves on providing the best face-to-face technical training in South Australia, and we are pleased we can now offer this online, and now with the easing of distancing restrictions, in person.


1) We have live trainers hosting class environments online where video, audio and screen sharing facilities are available to provide all the benefits of in person training mentioned above. Attendees have access to a live trainer via video conferencing, all course materials, relevant virtual environments and the ability to chat with the trainer and other students in real time.

Simply search for the course your looking for and complete the information form as normal. We will contact you to arrange and confirm the training delivery.


In these uncertain times, Academy IT more than ever, aims to support businesses and individuals in developing their technical knowledge and competencies in the workplace. With many staff now unable to attend work, we see this as an opportunity for businesses to support the personal development of their staff by providing training in readiness for future growth and technical needs following the global pandemic.


2) With the easing of distancing restrictions, Academy IT is back to providing in-person training. This means your staff can again attend our training rooms for all your training requirements. 

Although the restrictions have been eased to allow now 1 person per 2sqm – as an extra health precaution for our clients, visitors and staff, Academy IT restricts the number of persons per training room or break-out area to less than what is permitted.


Located in the heart of Adelaide at Harmer House - Level 2 / 5 Leigh Street - we are close to buses, train and tram stations and parking facilities. We are South Australian owned and operated for over 12 years, and as such are aware of the requirements of South Australia's organisations for premium technical training.


Academy IT is the only South Australian owned and operated Microsoft Learning Partner. What this means for you is you have access to the latest and most up to date Microsoft Official Courseware, we provide official Microsoft Certified Trainers and can even provide access to Microsoft Official Learn On Demand online training!

We offer courses as diverse as Cloud, Security, Databases, Programming and Networking right through to ITIL, Service Desk Analyst and applications training for Adobe Suite and Microsoft Office. With Office 365 applications and Microsoft 365 and Azure services becoming more popular, we are ready to provide instruction for you and your team in SharePoint, Teams and the entire Office and Microsoft 365 lineup.

We have three training rooms with up to date facilities available for your experience. With those training rooms, we also have real instructors... trained specialists who are actually in the room with you, able to answer your questions and provide that personalised support. In class training also provides the opportunity to meet and network with other students working with the same technologies who often become great sources of information and experience.

Our current customers include many state and commonwealth government departments, multinational and large companies and many, many small South Australian businesses.

We also now offer in partnership with the Australian Computer Society, the "Professional Year" program where IT Graduates undertake instruction to prepare them to be industry ready. Academy IT is the only provider of this program that has an IT focus! We offer students not only work experience as part of the program, but an opportunity to undertake vendor training while studying introducing them to students who already work in the industry. For more information, select "Professional Year" in the menu above.



Recent Testimonials...


Having been recently appointed to a new role which would require a focus on SQL and reporting, my organisation had searched for a local training solution covering both Transact-SQL query language and Analysis using SSRS.
We found Academy IT as a recommended Microsoft Certified Training Partner in Adelaide which appeared to suit our needs.
Initially there had been some concern with not attending one of the larger, and more widely recognised, training companies interstate, however my preference had been to make use of our local providers and not be required to travel interstate for a week or longer in order to complete my training.
I have now completed my second course through Academy IT and can say that the training received from Academy IT is both professional and well structured.
Courseware supplied has been presented in line with the expected framework, and I am impressed they chose to expand the second training session to match a new revision of the material which had been received after my initial booking was accepted.
Facilities are well presented and more than adequate, allowing for much larger groups to be received than we had required.
Their premises are also conveniently located close to both transport and parking facilities.
Should opportunities arise for future training, I will definitely request Academy IT as my preferred provider.
- Jason (March 2018)


The content provided by Academy IT and their trainers was excellent. Before starting their course I didn't think I would go back to study, but after the training they provided me with, I am now thinking about what to enrol in next at their academy.
I would recommend anyone wanting to enrol in an IT course consider Academy IT as their provider.
- Bradley (July 2018)


The last training course was outstanding. Best training experience I have had in years. Aaron is a great trainer.
- Andrew O’Regan SAGE Automation (September 2018)


The course we have been taking with Aaron this week has been very good. His instruction was very clear and he was flexible with focus on our areas of interest relating to our roles.
I always enjoy training at AcademyIT and wanted to let you know.
