What Are Short Courses?

Adelaide Short Courses

What is a short course?

A short course is a course that doesn’t take long to complete! Short courses are a great way to gain the relevant skills needed for a new career path quickly. They’re also a great way to upskill – if there’s short courses relevant/available for the industry you work in.

How long does it take to complete a short course?

The duration of a short course will differ depending on the course you’re completing. Courses can run for just a few hours to a few months. Generally, a short course will take no longer than 6 months to complete. Short courses are the fastest way to learn what you need, rather than completing a Uni degree that may take 4 years. 

What can I get from a short course?

An Adelaide short course through HITsa will provide you with specific skills and knowledge that will help you to get a job or take that next step in your career. After successful completion, you may receive a statement of attainment (like a certificate). This shows the units of competency that you have completed as part of a nationally recognised course. 

Short courses also look great on your resume!

How much does a short course cost?

Short courses are often very affordable, with some even being fully or partly subsidised through government funding. This means if eligible, the course may be cost-free, or you may only need to pay a small contribution.
