The Centre offers accredited Vocational Education and Training units.
Through CQ University the Centre leads the delivery of accredited education. Accreditation means that a unit or course is recognised and that a registered training organisation (RTO) can issue a vocational education and training (VET) qualification or VET statement of attainment following its full or partial completion.
In effect your domestic violence study may contribute to a qualification in a related field, such as community services or primary health care! Our units are delivered by experienced training and expert domestic violence sector personnel.
