Liam Spindler


Team Australia - IT Network Systems Administration

Liam Spindler has been playing with computers since he was young.

While at high school, his interest in computers took a more structured form and he began to teach himself basic programming in his spare time. Undertaking further studies in the IT sector after high school was an obvious move for Liam, and he enrolled in a Diploma of IT Networking at TAFE NSW in Port Macquarie.

For Liam, the unpredictable nature of IT Networking makes it an engaging and challenging field to work in, where problem-solving skills are paramount. That passion for his industry – and the desire to always do better – led Liam to compete in a regional WorldSkills competition for IT Network Systems Administration, where he was able to measure himself against his peers and identify the areas he needs to work on.

Success in the regional competition saw Liam earn an invite to compete at the 2021 WorldSkills Australia National Championships, where he was awarded a gold medal.

Now, Liam is working closely with expert Troy Pretty in preparation for the 46th WorldSkills International Competition in Shanghai this coming August. Liam’s training plan has him focusing weak spots identified during his performance at Nationals and will see him spending at least 1 hour each day on Linux configuring, documentation, and practicing services. Once Linux has been sufficiently covered, his focus will shift to Cisco networking and general troubleshooting.

Liam hopes to one day take his IT skills into the Royal Australian Air Force and combine his twin passions of IT and aviation. But for now, he is simply focused on being the best he can be and taking the time to cultivate the skills he needs to confidently represent Australia on the International stage.

Says Liam, “I believe anything is possible if you are willing to put in the effort and work hard and I want to show everyone what I am capable of when I dedicate myself.”

    WorldSkills Australia

    WorldSkills Australia is a social enterprise that has a purpose to identify, demonstrate, promote, and grow the excellence of Australia’s skills development. A not-for-profit organisation, we are a united voice for skills excellence in vocational, technological, and service oriented careers in Australia. We recognise that the vocational education and training sector is central to Australia’s economic growth, productivity, and future employment outcomes. We have a long and successful history of supporting young Australians to excel in their trade or skill by encouraging them to take part in WorldSkills events and test their skills against their peers at Australia’s most prestigious skills excellence competitions. We are unashamedly about excellence and since 1981, more to 100,000 apprentices and trainees have taken part in WorldSkills Australia activities with many going on to become leaders and key influencers in industry, small business owners and educators. In addition, during the past 40 years, thousands of industry experts and education professionals have enjoyed professional and personal development by volunteering their time and resources to support, train and mentor the apprentices and trainees taking part in WorldSkills competitions regionally, nationally, and internationally. WorldSkills events also provide unequalled opportunities for knowledge exchange between educators, industry, employers, and government departments, with a focus on best practices in skills training and development. As a result, educators and trainers, who participate as a WorldSkills Volunteers typically report improved training delivery and standards and this flows onto the RTO’s and employer groups in a meaningful way. Here is some more information on WorldSkills Australia and our competitors in action at the 2021 National Championships in Perth
