Short courses

Short courses are a great way to pick up new skills for professional and personal development. In addition to courses that commence each term, South Metropolitan TAFE has a range of shorter courses that take ongoing enrolments. That means you can get started with your study sooner, getting you on the right track to boost your career options.

Our short course program has been designed to focus on providing vocational skills, aligned to the needs of employers and industry. This will help you gain the skills you want now and create a pathway to consider further education and training options.

If you would rather talk to someone we have our course information team available to take your call on 1800 001 001, or you can send an email to info@smtafe.wa.edu.au.
