Accredited short courses

Accredited short courses, units, and skill sets are a great option if you're a qualified professional who wants to diversify your professional portfolio and boost your resume. An accredited short course or skill set will earn you official credits for the units you complete. These unit credits may even be applied to a related qualification at a later date if you choose to study a full certificate or diploma.

When you complete your accredited unit/s you will earn a Statement of Attainment.

Non-accredited short courses

Non-accredited short courses and skill sets give you hands-on training in a new set of skills you can use in your personal or professional life. They are a great way to refresh your knowledge if you've been out of an industry for a while, or even to give you a taste of a different industry altogether.

When you complete a non-accredited short course you will earn a Statement of Attendance.
