Box Hill Institute of TAFE is now offering a "Vocational Graduate 
Certificate in ICT Sustainability" at its Nelson Campus in Melbourne 
<http://www.bhtafe.edu.au/Courses/GCIS1.htm>. The course includes 
subjects of "Manage improvements in ICT sustainability ", "Use ICT to 
improve sustainability outcomes", "Lead personal and strategic 
transformation" and "Principles of sustainability".

In May I visited Box Hill Institute to talk to Frank Mentiplay and 
other staff about the course. The course will initially be face to 
face on campus, but they are looking at e-learning and distance 
education options.

It is good to see a range of green ICT courses becoming available in 
Australia. The Box Hill Institute course slots in neatly between the 
very hands-on units at Petersham TAFE in Sydney 
and the management level course I am running at ANU on Green ICT 
Strategies (COMP7310) <http://cs.anu.edu.au/students/comp7310/>.

I have suggested to Box Hill Institute of TAFE we get together and 
propose common standards for green ICT education, which will apply to 
both the vocational and higher education sectors.
