Who should attend:
This is an overview course that assumes no technical background, nor space operations experience. Whilst the program contains technical material, a technical background is not necessary for learners to achieve all program outcomes.
The learner audience will come from a wide cross-section of industry, government, military, and personal interest backgrounds.
Those who need to appreciate how humans interact with the contemporary space domain without needing to replicate or implement the techniques to do so should attend the course. Those who work in space-adjacent or space-enabled industries and commercial operations, or law and policy-makers who need insight into how space policy and law may intersect with their area of expertise should also attend. People who are interested in seeing how current technologies and capabilities either assist or degrade space security, or demonstrate the contemporary space contest will also gain immense value from this course.
People looking to build upon any exposure to space or space technologies, or are considering longer-term post-graduate education in space operations and would like to gain more insight before deciding to undertake additional formalised study should also consider attending.
