Are you a professional looking to upgrade your skills or a job seeker looking for a commercial role? A new TAFE NSW Short Course could be the ticket – and you can do it from the comfort of your own home.
The educational institution is offering a new free course in its Lockdown Learning series, on Risk Management and Occupational Health and Safety (WHS).
The Risk Management and WHS Success Statement is one of 25 courses in the series, which includes topics such as aviation services, events, and drones in agriculture.
TAFE NSW Managing Director Steffen Faurby said the new course is open to 100 people and will provide essential skills to support businesses as NSW begins to reopen.
“TAFE NSW is proud to offer personalized training to help our businesses, communities and economy recover from this pandemic,” said Mr. Faurby.
“We know these skills will be needed as COVID-19 restrictions ease and businesses begin to resume or scale up operations.
“Our statement of success in risk management and WHS is particularly relevant with our increased focus on health and safety management, adding value for all sectors of the industry. ”
The TAFE NSW short courses were first introduced last year in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The free courses are designed to be taken at home during confinement.
Some of the other skills that participants can hone include building a website, handling food, creating and designing a spreadsheet, introduction to accounting, medical terminology, and more.
