The milestone is yet another example of Nova Systems’ ongoing commitment to foster, develop and mature sovereign T&E capability and deliver a highly skilled and competent Australian T&E workforce that can support current and future needs with expertise to develop and apply new T&E approaches.
As a registered training organisation (RTO), the Australian owned and controlled engineering services and technology solutions company delivers a range of sovereign, in-country training programs covering areas including T&E of complex systems, model based systems engineering, communications and logistics.
Nova Systems offers the nationally recognised Certificate IV in T&E and Diploma of T&E, which provides practitioners with the knowledge and skills required and incorporates the latest defence policies, processes and operational framework.
Since the company was founded more than 20 years ago, Nova Systems delivered these courses to a wide range of professionals across defence, including the Australian Army, Royal Australian Navy and Royal Australian Air Force.
Nova Systems Chief Executive Officer Jim McDowell said: “Test and Evaluation will always be our bread and butter.
“We are proud to have trained the Australian T&E practitioner community for more than two decades ensuring Australia has a skilled T&E workforce, capable of addressing the challenges and opportunities posed by emerging technologies and the requirements of a sovereign T&E capability.
“In turn, our training is supporting our service men and women increase safety, survivability and availability of the equipment they use every day – from submarines to tanks to frigates.”

Nova Systems Test and Evaluation Capability Lead Tim Grabert said Nova Systems has an “unrivalled reputation” in the field of T&E.
“We are the best in the business, and our training is delivered in Australia, by Australians – this is why people come to us for specialist T&E training,” said Mr Grabert.
“Our consultants learn continuously through working with our partners including the Australian Department of Defence and defence industry and apply their experience to their teaching.
“The course is hands-on and focuses on delivering practitioner skills and knowledge, so ultimately practitioners can deliver this complex work.
“We're constantly updating our course offerings with the trends and best practice that we’re seeing first-hand in the industry.”
Mr Grabert said the Certificate IV course had been invaluable in helping leverage Nova Systems’ name as a leader in T&E.
“Many people who complete the course come back and ask us to support them as clients or come to us for advice, so delivering this training course goes hand-in-hand with our core business,” Mr Grabert said.
“Nova Systems has trained a large percentage of the Australian T&E workforce across both Australian Government and industry. As a global leader in T&E, we’re really excited to be continuing this work to support more Australians in this critical capability.”
