Baxter Institute’s certificate and diploma courses are government accredited and are on the CRICOS register, allowing international and domestic students to study with peace of mind. There are a variety of short courses to take advantage of including courses for the hair, beauty, bakery and automotive industries. Other short courses for specific purposes include, First Aid, IELTS preparation and welding. Students enrolled in short courses can enjoy great flexibility with the opportunity either to follow a set study program or tailor a course to suit their own special needs.
Our training methods are suited to students who have been dissatisfied with the traditional approaches to education and are looking for a more dynamic style of learning. We encourage students who have been out of learning environments for some time and are looking for an opportunity to achieve financial independence through learning an applied trade. We also recognise prior learning and can tailor a course to suit your abilities. To ensure the highest standards in teaching we operate according to a strict code of practice with a comprehensive complaint & appeals policy, refund policy and adherence to government guidelines.
The excellence and professionalism of Baxter Institute’s training, in conjunction with flexible payment plans, flexible start dates and flexible timetables, will ensure that there is a course suitable for many students with special needs. This will also make it easier to study for students who choose to have a part time job. All of these factors are intended to produce the best educational outcomes for our students.
Baxter Institute’s curriculum is focused primarily on practical application. The goal of all training is to support students to join the workforce as soon as possible. At Baxter Institute we provide you with the greatest opportunities for a successful career.
