How Quickly can I Finish my Short Course?
At Skills Academy, you can finish your course as quickly as you would like. If you complete assignments early, you will be able to submit them and move on with your course. You will not be held back by students who work more slower than you do. However, we suggest that you study for at least three to four months to get the best results possible.
What do I get After I Finish my Short Course?
The number one benefit you get is the skills and knowledge that will help you in your career. You will also get a short course certificate of completion after you finish your studies.
Can I Study a Short Course From Where I Live?
You can study any one of our short courses from wherever you are in South Africa. You do not have to travel to any classes at night and you do not have to travel back home alone at night either. You can study most short courses from the comfort and safety of your own home, at your own pace.
Why Should I Study a Short Course?
Let’s have a look at the reasons why you should consider taking a short course.
This is Education Most People can Afford
You’ll hardly ever hear someone taking out a student loan to pay off a short course. These courses are much more affordable when compared to full-length diplomas and degrees.
You can Gain Skills Quickly
The real value of a short course comes from the fact that you can gain any number of new skills quickly. Short courses aim to save you time and make you a better worker. This is done by teaching you skills which you can use in the workplace right away. This type of education is mostly done in your own time. We suggest studying one or two courses per year to improve your skills. Why only one or two each year? This gives you time to deal with anything that might take your focus off of your studies, such as issues at work or in your family.
You Should Always Keep Learning
Whether you are still looking for work or already have a job, you should always be looking to learn more. As there will always be new skills and knowledge out there that help you to do your job better. It shouldn’t be a case of “why should I study a short course?”, but rather “what should I study next?”.
When can I get Started?
You can start at any time of the year, whenever the time is right for you!
