What is Digital Ready?

Digital Ready is a free online training course for small businesses and organisations. It's an initiative of the Australian Communications Consumer Action Network (ACCAN) and the federal Department of Industry Innovation and Science and aims to equip small business owners, organisations and clubs with the skills and knowledge to take advantage of digital technology in growing their business.

Digital technology is moving at a fast pace and many small business owners need advice on how to benefit from the opportunities the digital world offers.

Having an online presence and using the internet to improve internal processes can bring many benefits, but too often small business has not been able to make the most of this technology. To assist with this, we have developed six comprehensive Online Learning Modules.
