Short Courses & Skill sets
Train4Life is an innovative training organisation dedicated to supplying relevant and valuable industry training. Our trainers have current and significant industry experience, including cross sector knowledge and multi sector skills.

What is the difference between a Short Course and a Skill Set?

Short courses are a great way to acquire new skills or to enhance (or refresh) your existing skills, without having to go through the assessment procedures of a nationally recognised unit of competency. Short courses can be developed to meet a specific industry need, and can be run on demand for organisations.

Skill sets are a group of key nationally recognised units of competency to meet an industry need. Skill sets allow workers to build on their existing qualifications to keep their skills up to date or to develop skills in a new area without their needing to complete a full qualification, enabling them to progress in an industry, to move between different sectors in an industry or into a new industry.

Train4Life Skill set attract Skills Capital funding (An ACT government training initiative funded by the ACT and Australian Governments). To be considered for a Skills Capital funded Skill set applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Hold a Certificate III or higher qualification in a relevant field
  • Must be an existing worker or volunteer in the industry
