Studying a business course gives you versatile and endlessly useful skills to pursue a career in business. There is so much involved in the world of business and it can encompass many different things across industries and businesses.
Our Certificate III, which some may know from its previous course number BSB30115, is the perfect introduction to studying business and being able to develop practical skills to use in a real world setting.
There are core business skills that are important no matter what industry or role you are in, from an office assistant to a business owner. And like any industry, roles and business processes can evolve over time, so it’s important to stay on top of everything and continue to upskill. That’s why many people further their careers in business by studying business courses.
Our BSB30120 Business Course (previously BSB30115) gives graduates an edge when either starting or furthering their career in business.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits of the Certificate III in Business:
Flexible and convenient
Taking the Certificate III and any other of our online business courses is the most flexible and convenient way to develop your skills and gain valuable, recognised qualifications. In our busy world, the way we study is changing. Online courses are just as valuable and rewarding as in-person study and they also provide students with the ability to choose the study methods that suit them best.
Our business courses also give you the opportunity to study at your own pace and fit your study into your personal schedule. This gives you a greater chance to reach your study goals while continuing working and gaining practical experience.
Develops critical thinking
Business courses help to develop your critical thinking skills in lots of different environments. Everyone tackles problems from a different perspective, so in learning critical thinking, you can look at business problems objectively and with multiple viewpoints in mind to make the most beneficial decision overall.
Having sound critical thinking skills puts you in good stead for improving businesses processes, as well developing techniques to facilitate change.
Not only is critical thinking important for business, but it is also valuable in many other roles and areas. Developing techniques and understanding of how to best approach problems with a constructive and critical eye is a valuable pursuit for any career.
Provides networking opportunities
Learning alongside others that are interested in business and working with trainers experienced in the industry gives you the opportunity to start networking and develop your networking skills at the same time.
The business industry thrives on building connections and networking, even if the connection isn’t immediately beneficial to you. Building these connections gives you an advantage if the time comes to reach out to them in the future and can also give you a fresh perspective on things that you might not have noticed otherwise.
Networking with peers and trainers also helps to build a support network and can help you find mentors to assist you in your career progressions.
Provides increased credibility
Graduating with a nationally recognised certificate in business gives you credibility and an employment edge when pursuing your chosen career in business. Not only is the experience and training industry-leading, but studying at an award winning college with a good reputation will make you stand out from the competition.
If you’re interested in entering a new career in business, a certificate shows employers and partners that you are serious with your intentions and you have the necessary knowledge for the role.
Develops communication and collaborative skills
In any position in business, communication and collaboration are key to working well with others in your team and also with the business as a whole in mind. Being able to communicate effectively, with everyone from peers to key stakeholders and everyone in between, is one of the most important skills you’ll need in business. Not only does it help to maintain an efficient workplace, but it also helps to set clear expectations for all involved.
Collaboration is just as important. Being able to work with others to achieve business goals is in everyone’s best interest and helps to deliver on tasks quickly and efficiently.
In the Certificate III, you’ll develop experience in engaging in workplace communication, using inclusive work practices, and support personal wellbeing in the workplace, among other skills.
If you’re interested in starting a career in business, say as an Accounts Clerk or Office Assistant, the Certificate III in Business is the perfect starting point. It will open the door to many opportunities and give you the key skills you’ll need at every stage of your career.
