Short Courses


Our 1 day barista training course is run at the Macarthur Centre for Sustainable Living in Mount Annan. The upcoming course dates are on the calendar or you can click the course link box below. The cost for the course is $199 per person and each course has a maximum of 12* participants. *Numbers will be limited to 12 per barista training course due to social distancing requirements. We are monitoring the situation closely and will follow government directives to ensure your health and safety, and to minimise the spread of COVID-19 as required.

If you are not feeling well prior to the course please advise us and we will change you to another date. You will not lose your money so please keep everyone safe and stop the spread if you're unwell.

Our barista training course and our online short courses are developed in conjunction with industry representatives. They are responsive to local demands and changing industry needs and focus on the skills you need to do the job. This means we can change course design very quickly to achieve the desired results for learners and employers as required. We can also add new workshops should they be necessary to up-skill existing workers in an ever changing environment.


Our range of online tourism and events courses offer learning options that are interactive, flexible, affordable and self-paced, and most include nationally recognised units of competency. They provide you with the opportunity to study key skills and competencies in the comfort of your own surrounds.
