'New Start' for IT professionals affected by COVID-19 redundancy

Get a 50% discount on selected publicly scheduled IT courses for IT professionals affected by COVID-19 redundancy.

'New Start' - 50% discount for affected IT professionals

We want to provide valuable learning and skills - "a new start" - to New Zealand IT workers affected by COVID-19 redundancy, as they look for their next position.

To help we're offering a 50% discount to those affected on Equinox Training delivered public courses running in Auckland and Wellington, New Zealand.

The 'New Start' offer is available to individual IT professionals and also to employers wanting to help IT staff who are going through redundancy.


Public courses eligible for 'New Start'

While we provide a range of IT professional courses, the 'New Start' 50% discount applies to courses delivered directly by Equinox Training, not our partner courses. Courses eligible for the 50% discount include:

Agile and DevOps

Business Analysis

Solution architecture

Professional Consulting


Other courses

While our public courses delivered with partners do not qualify for the 'New Start' 50% discount, we will work with our partners on a case-by-case basis to try to help those affected who wish to attend one of these partner courses. While this is unlikely to be a 50% discount, we'll try to help in some way.
