Did you know? What exactly is a short course?


A short course is a learning programme that offers condensed content or specific skills training in a short period of time.  A short course can take anything from 1 to 12 months to complete and can be offered in any field or subject.



The precise definition of a 'short course' will, however, differ from institute to institute, and from subject to subject.  There is a wide variety of short courses you can take in South Africa:  from online short courses to university short courses, residential college courses and distance learning short courses such as those offered by College SA.  


"Short course provisioning is one of the most dynamic features of the emerging education and training system of South Africa". - The South African Qualifications Authority (Source:, 17 March 2014)  


Short courses training play an important part in developing South Africa into a better country.  Because short courses are so affordable and easy to take, they provide a perfect way for many workers to become skilled, to upgrade their skill sets, or to develop multiple skills.  Fostering skilled labour is a big part of building a better labour force and national economy.

Why take a short course?


Your short course might only be 3 months long, but you will permanently reap the benefits thereof.  Your short course training programme will always be part of your CV.


Adding training courses to your CV will mean a lot if you don't have anything like a university degree or college diploma.  Completing a short course will allow you to promote yourself as having a certain level of training.


Even if you already have a university degree or a diploma - how will you stand out from other qualified job candidates? Having a number of short courses on your CV will make a great difference when applying for a job, as it will show that you are:


  • Pro Active
  • Hardworking
  • Willing to learn
  • Ambitious


It will also show that you have more training and skills than other candidates - that you are, in fact, more qualified.


There are many more benefits to taking a short course.  Many of these benefits are also unique to studying a short course with College SA.
