Box Hill Institute Offers New Online Short Courses


Box Hill Institute has been selected to partner with the Commonwealth Government and deliver four new online short courses to equip participants with new skills that will make them more employable.

Federal Minister for Education, Dan Tehan said, “Students can enrol in these short, online courses and graduate with a recognised qualification and new skills. These short courses will support Australians who have lost their jobs or are looking to retrain in national priority areas.”
