Short Courses

The programme of short courses offered by Orkney College UHI draws on the skills and experience of lecturers as well as the vocational expertise of a pool of trainers to ensure that we are meeting the needs of the local business community. We aim to cover current legislative requirements including Health & Safety, Food Hygiene & Alcohol Service, First Aid, and Vehicle & Plant Operations through a range of certificated courses accredited by the relevant awarding body.

Where possible courses will enable progression from Elementary to Intermediate to Advanced levels and any pre-registration requirements will be identified on the course information sheet. Courses which are certificated by an awarding body will follow a set syllabus and examination or assessment.

Additional courses can be added to the programme if demand is sufficient. These can be delivered in house and course content can be customised to meet the needs of an organisation with discounts available for group bookings.  To discuss further contact Dorothy Learmonth on 569203 or Tina Brown on 569206 or e-mail tina.brown@uhi.ac.uk.
