The course is made up of approximately 20 modules. Some short some long and some are just ‘quick bytes’ These are just points to consider and don’t need much further study.
2. How long will it take to complete?
The modules range from 15 mins to an hour each. There are suggested personal development activities for you to do as well. It all depends on where you are at now and how many skills need developing.

How long it takes for you to work on and grow those skills to a point where they become second nature is up to you. This is a journey, not a quick fix.

19. Is this only for Australia, can my friend in UK do this as well?
We will have to get it translated from Australian. Only kidding. Yes, it is relevant for all English-speaking nations. While there may be a few “cultural sleights” that influence some of the principles, the basic soft skills have the same application the world over.
20. Is Soft Skills Training Institute an RTO?
My goodness no! All the courses offered by an RTO is covered by a national framework, which does not have the units or content required to develop and facilitate the courses we offer.
Our courses are life skills and ‘soft skills’ courses, not technical or ‘hard skills’ courses. Our content falls outside the structure of what government has set up as a national framework for an RTO to follow. We are quite happy about that too. Can you imagine a communications course, or a workflow course being framed and written by government? Many government departments are certainly equipped with very good people and structures for many things that a government provide. This course is not one of those.
