The Online Courses Australia Difference

We don’t use dense academic text books. Instead, we design digestible step-by-step modules and high-quality video sessions, backed by 24/7 tutorial support. The lessons are all taught on demand, and assessments are generally short answer or multiple-choice and can be re-taken as many times as needed. They’re perfect for people with busy lives and families who want to better themselves while unlocking better opportunities.

Why learn with us?

Fully CPD Accredited
We’re CPD Accredited, which means each of our modules is globally recognised for Continuing Professional Development. Once you’re done, you’ll have CPD points ready if you want to take your study even further.

100% online and on-demand courses
On-demand means you can enrol at any time. You’ll be free to learn at your own pace and on your own schedule. And, with unlimited attempts available, assessments are designed to improve comprehension rather than test the instant recall of facts in a strictly timed setting.

Dedicated support, seven days a week
There is dedicated one-on-one support all the way through, including tutor contact via phone, email during business hours and live chat seven days a week.

Industry-led learning
All OCA’s courses are designed and produced in-house by industry leaders, which means we save on licensing fees and pass those savings on to you.
