What is a certificate?
A TAFE certificate is great for accessing hands-on, practical work in areas that require more than basic or entry-level knowledge. The difference between certificate- and diploma-level study can be the duration of study, extended specialised knowledge and further study opportunities.
Higher-level certificates are also perfect for professionals who are already working, or looking to expand their career.
Certificates I and II
Certificate I and II courses give you the basic training and skills in a specific industry with one goal in mind — to get you started in the workplace. Many Certificate I and II courses are also pre-apprenticeships.
Certificates III and IV
Certificates III and IV can be apprenticeships, traineeships or simply courses that prepare you for other jobs requiring more than basic skills and knowledge.
