Our skill sets and short courses allow you to focus your learning on specific units of competency that are relevant to your role.


Our short courses and skill sets are designed for those already working in the support sectors. They can be completed in 3 to 13 weeks.


Nationally accredited so your experience and expertise is formally recognised - a Statement of Attainment is issued for all completed units.

“I wanted to help people to change their lives, I had my own lived experience but needed the formal qualifications to get employed in the industry. I completed Certificate IV in Mental Health in 2018 with genU Training. I choose genU because I wanted face to face learning and they have a great reputation.

After securing a job at Windana as a support worker, I recently completed the Alcohol and Other Drugs Skill Set and my First Aid Certificate with genU as a requirement of my role. I found the trainers to be very helpful and so knowledgeable about the content delivered. They’ve even made themselves available since the course has ended for any questions that I have.”
