About the Centre

Welcome to the Centre for Professional Development!

The Centre for Professional Development offers a variety of continuing professional development and education opportunities in the form of Short Courses, Workshops, Webinars, and Open Online Resources across multiple disciplines.

Course material is developed by internal CQUniversity staff as well as external Industry Partners. The centre also provides opportunities for Industry Partners who wish to host courses in collaboration with CQUniversity.

Enrolments are open on a continuous basis with self-paced study and instant access to course material.
