Continuing professional development (CPD) is a requirement in some careers but even if your job doesn’t rely on CPD it’s still a good idea to complete short courses to keep your skills fresh and up-to-date. A string of short courses also adds to your value in the work place because employers (current and potential) will be impressed by your dedication to self-improvement.
You can take your pick of TAFE short courses in Australia. TAFE short courses are usually designed to complement certificate or diploma programs but there are also stand-alone courses for people who want to learn more about their hobbies. Many of these courses are offered online but you can attend classes or arrange for special corporate short courses at your office.
You can also find university short courses along the lines of digital photography, feng shui and bridal makeup. Once again, university short courses usually add to or complement existing programs but many universities also offer one-off lectures on specialist subjects by experts in that field.
Short courses are great for professional and self-improvement and their benefits have long-term rather than short-term effects. Now Learning promotes a range of online and classroom-based TAFE and university short courses in Australia. Ensure that you’re always up to date with what’s new and happening in your industry; enquire about a short course now.
