Are there other courses that could help me in my business?

Are you dreaming of starting your own business but don’t know where to begin? Do you already have your own business but find yourself overwhelmed by the demands of paperwork? Perhaps you just want to take your business to the next level. Running a small business can be hard, especially if your background is landscaping rather than office management. If you would like to learn some skills in business management to make your business more profitable, to make paperwork and compliance less time consuming, and to make staff management simpler, perhaps you could consider undertaking a business qualification.

There are any number of courses that you can consider. Some deal with most aspects of running a business, some deal with specific areas that could be useful. For example:

  • Certificate IV in New Small Business
  • Statement of Attainment in eMarketing for Small Business
  • Statement of Attainment in Digital Business Skill – Web, Social Media and eBusiness, and
  • Bachelor, Advanced Diploma, Diploma, Certificate I, II, III or IV in Business.
