The vocational education and training (VET) courses and qualifications on this course list are funded through the Department of Training and Workforce Development; these are referred to as publicly funded training. Other non-publicly funded courses are available through TAFE colleges and private providers; however these are not included in this course list. To find these other courses, you can search a list of all VET courses in WA via the myskills.gov.au website.
This list is presented in alphabetical order, by course/qualification title. To view details of a course or qualification, simply select its title and then select the training provider/s listed to see more information.
If you're looking for a particular qualification or course, enter a keyword such as 'business' or 'nursing', or keywords such as 'information technology'.
To show only a specific qualification level and/or training provider, select the 'Refine course search results' button then choose from the options presented in the drop-down box.
A range of qualifications and courses for priority industry areas and occupations are subsidised under Jobs and Skills WA, to reduce the cost of training in priority skill areas. To find out more about which courses are subsidised please take a look at the information available on the Training page.
