Q. Do I get a certificate for completing a short course – and if so, what do I have to do?

A. Yes, you’ll be awarded a certificate if you pass the exam.


Q. The short course I’m interested in has already run – can I still access it?

A. You sure can – all materials, including exams and webinar recordings, are made available at https://learn.itmasters.edu.au/ once you’ve registered.


Q. What happens if I can’t make the live webinar?

A. That’s fine – the webinar recording will be uploaded to https://learn.itmasters.edu.au/ within 48 hours.


Q. If I can watch the webinar at any time, why should I attend the live recording?

A. The live webinar gives you a great opportunity to interact with the mentor using the Q&A or to connect with other students in the chat – many of whom will have a lot of industry experience with great insight to share.


Q. What is the duration of the short course?
