Why complete an Employability Skills Course?

Refresh your skills or learn new ones to keep your workplace skills and certifications up to date or re-enter the workforce.

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.
