A Certificate Program is specialised in one specific skill or area, which you’ll study and learn in one or two courses. These programs don’t offer a broad overview of a field or industry, and are often a good option for someone who already has a degree or work experience in the field.
Let’s say, for example, that you’re an accountant with a bachelor’s degree. You want to get into forensic accounting because it’s a hot new part of the industry, but don’t want to go back to school for another degree. A forensic accounting certification will build on the accounting skills you already have, and teach you the need-to-know basics of forensic accounting.
A Diploma program, is longer and more in-depth. They allow you to study a specific area of specialisation and get a good overview of the field, without earning an actual degree.
These comprehensive programs are a great option for someone who wants to make a career change and get into a new field. If you were interested, for example, in a graphic design career, a graphic design diploma program would consist of multiple classes that would teach you fundamentals of graphic design, as well as different computer programs and technologies utilised in that industry.
We try to make what education options are available to average Australians easy to understand, rather than making it complicated. This can be why our offers can sound too good to be true!
We are always adding new RTO’s to our relationship lists so you can get access to more courses all the time!
Get Course has relationships with a number of quality well known training providers who can get you certified.
Our job is to help get you into the course, we don’t deliver the course itself, but you can rest assured our training providers are pretty awesome.
If you are still worried that you will get into a course and not be happy with it, feel safe because you are entitled to what they call a “Census date”. This basically means that if you don’t feel the course is the right one for you, then you can back out before that date without incurring any debt. A “census date” is a little bit like a free trial for the course. These dates can vary between 7 days to months before the first census date after starting your course. Just remember that if you pass that date without telling the training provider you are cancelling then you must pay for that part of the course.
