Professional Development

CQUniversity offers a large range of non-award short courses through the Centre for Professional Development to meet mandatory professional development requirements as well as industry workforce development needs. Course material is developed by internal CQUniversity staff as well as external industry experts and delivered via the Centre for Professional Development's online Learning Management System (LMS). The LMS serves to provide instant access to the courses with a secure payment gateway.

Enrolments are open on a continuous basis with a self-paced study, allowing students to complete the courses within a flexible timeframe.

Successful completion of a Professional Development Course (PDC) will be awarded a Certificate of Completion outlining Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours.

Students may be eligible for credit transfer and/or Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) into some courses offered at the University on a case by case basis.

Courses can be accessed at the CQUniversity Short Courses page or directly at the Centre's Moodle site at

New courses are added on a regular basis to accommodate industry updates.
