Short Courses

Our hospitality short courses are entirely practical – we give you a quick explanation of how to do something then you try it out yourself. These classes are a great way to learn a new skill to help you find a job, or just for fun! Classes are fast, fun and practical, and are designed to help you learn quickly – we keep small class sizes (maximum 6 students) to make sure that you get a lot of time to practice and ask questions. Open to anyone, there are no written tests or unit standards associated with these courses
