Short courses for the construction industry

Upskill, re-skill, or learn new skills with these short courses, and pay next to nothing — all thanks to Construction Skills Queensland.

The Construction Skills Queensland Short Courses Program delivered by TAFE Queensland provides funding for a range of competencies and skill sets for existing workers in general and civil construction industries wanting to update their skills and knowledge in specific areas.

These short courses, which include short courses/individual units of competency, Certificate, Diploma and Advanced Diploma level training, are suited to current tradespeople who want to upskill and those who simply want to gain formal qualifications for the skills that they have already learnt in the workplace. 

Short courses are a great way to acquire new knowledge and skills in a short amount of time but what’s on offer exactly? So many to choose from: see full list, and here are some of our favourites.
