The Centre for Volunteering recognises that not everyone has the time or capacity to complete an entire qualification, but may still be interested in the topics covered. To accommodate this, The Centre offers students the opportunity to complete accredited training independently by undertaking a unit or selection of units of their choice.

Who it’s for

We invite anyone interested in accredited training, or keen to make a start but cannot currently commit to a full course.


  • Access to a workplace (as most units will require evidence from the workplace and application of the skills in the unit chosen). If you’re just beginning a new role, we can support you.
  • Access to a computer with high speed internet in order to access the materials on our e-learning platform.
  • Intermediate computer skills and a good level of organisation.
  • Ability to conduct studies independently, including researching and interpreting information.

Additional entry requirements apply depending on the units of competency selected.

How it works


Choose a unit of competency or selection of units from the Cert IV in Coordination of Volunteer Programs (CHC44105).

Core units

Use communication to build relationships (CHCCOM002)
Manage and promote diversity (CHCDIV003)
Work legally and ethically (CHCLEG001)
Recruit, induct and support volunteers (CHCVOL003)
Manage volunteer workforce development (CHCVOL004)
Maintain work health and safety (HLTWHS003)

Elective units

The units are all delivered online through our e-learning platform, and are completed independently. The resources, recordings and materials are available online, and can be accessed at any time of the day.

Live, online workshops that run as part of the Certificate IV in Coordination of Volunteer Programs (CHC44105), are able to be accessed by students enrolled in the relevant units.

Schedule and duration

The unit or units can be undertaken at your own pace, but must be completed within 4 months. To complete the unit in one month, we would recommend dedicating a minimum of 10 hours per week to successfully complete the unit.

Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is offered for candidates who can demonstrate skills and knowledge from significant on-the-job learning or other relevant qualifications.
