Short Courses

CQUniversity offer a range of accredited, non-accredited and non-award short courses for professional development across a variety of interest areas. If you are looking at upgrading your skills, or have a talent or interest that you would like to pursue, our suite of short courses are designed to bring you the knowledge and skills you are looking for.

Non-accredited courses are short courses without formal assessment for people over 15 years and are typically held for two to three hours a week, over six to eight weeks. Accredited short courses are designed to provide knowledge and skills across a wide range of topics including automotive, art, beauty, information technology, hospitality, small business, languages and sport.

Non-Award Short Courses (PDC) are designed to meet professional development requirements as well as industry workforce needs and you can start at anytime. Successful completion of a Professional Development Course (PDC) will be awarded with Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours and a CQUniversity Certificate of Completion. Articulation into accredited courses at CQUniversity is available for some of the courses on a case by case basis.

There are courses across many industries and customised courses can be developed by CQUniversity if your organisation has specific needs.
