Short Courses

SACOB’s short business courses deliver engaging, highly effective educational material to the ambitious and motivated professional. We aim to break down the barrier of distance by providing exceptional learning programmes online, giving you the flexibility you need to work and study. Even without a physical classroom, you’re afforded an excellent experience, with video tutorials, quizzes and interaction with lecturer and peers.

A short course that goes the distance

In the fast-paced world of business, it’s important to stay on your toes and well versed in your specialty. As an existing professional, you may only need to learn one aspect of your trade, such as payroll calculations, instead of enrolling for an entire programme. Our distance learning short courses are the solution, as they encompass invaluable practical skills.

Our modules are designed to boost your competencies, with:

  • Opportunities to progress to a comprehensive certification programme with one of our professional body institutions
  • Distance education that allows you to study at your own pace and save money, while working
  • A high-touch learning experience tailored for people who have and haven’t Matriculated, individuals who would like to progress in their careers, and entire organisations

Courses that bridge the gap

You don’t need to wonder where you should study short courses in South Africa. Now you can learn from the comfort of your home. We’re committed to staying relevant, and providing you with real-world knowledge that you can apply in your own sphere. Furthermore, most our courses are accredited by trusted bodies such as SAQA, FASSET, CIMA, ICB and the Department of Education.

With SACOB, there’s no barrier between you and the professional skillset you desire – browse our selection of courses and apply today.
