You can earn a Certificate II, III or IV in a short amount of time. Choose a certificate level based on your level of experience and the role you’d like to be qualified for.

  • Certificate II courses prepare you for entry-level positions or apprenticeships in a variety of industries. As well as providing basic knowledge, a Certificate II demonstrates to a potential employer that you are actively interested in their industry.
  • Certificate III courses develop skills, theoretical knowledge and problem-solving abilities. This level of qualification is ideal if you want to move out of entry-level roles, or shift into a new career, such as a qualified Florist.
  • Certificate IV courses are designed for supervisory and management positions. This qualification level is valuable if you want to advance your career in the industry you already work in, or build on skills you’ve acquired through previous study.
