Skill sets and short courses

Skill set
A skill set is a great way to complete units of competency in short blocks of study. Like a short course, a skill set can be studied part-time or full-time but has a much shorter duration. Skill sets are designed to allow you to pick up blocks of units and build your skills in a pathway to a full qualification, while allowing you to continue working full-time or away. They are also ideal in helping businesses fill skills gaps quickly or in assisting employees to aim for their next career step. Skill sets can be full-time when they involve more than 12 hours tutorial time a week, or part-time for any other shorter attendance per week. They can vary in duration from 1 or 2 days to 10 weeks, depending on how regularly you will be required to study.

Short course
Short courses help you build skills for enjoyment or to explore your passions. A short course sometimes does not have any units of competency or just one or two blended with other units that allow personal or hobby development. In some cases, short courses while not always including nationally accredited units, can be designed to gain accreditation or licensing by industry bodies for safety or industrial purposes. Short courses can be full-time when they involve more than 12 hours tutorial time a week, or part-time for any other shorter attendance per week. They can vary in duration from 1 or 2 days to 10 weeks, depending on how regularly you will be required to study.
