The Academy of Sport Health and Education has increased the number of courses it offers the public.
ASHE manager Leonie Dwyer said the education and training institution offered the public the chance to take part in a course, such as a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, each year.
But because of popular demand, ASHE was offering people the chance to enrol in a Certificate IV in Community Services.
Recently ASHE had several members of different businesses, such as Berry Street, Kaiela Arts and the Algabonyah Employment Program complete a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.
Lisa Thorpe, Charles Williams, Corey Walker, Jay Cranage, Sharon Pattison, Angi Russi, Brea Moran, Zach Sislov and Jamie Atkinson are qualified to deliver any VET course subject within the VET sector.
Ms Dwyer said the courses allowed people to up-skill and gain a new qualification.
‘‘It was a great group of people to come from different organisations to share and learn in the community,’’ she said.
‘‘It’s great role modelling for young people to see it’s never too late to be getting an education or up-skilling.’’
Ms Dwyer said although many of course participants had jobs, there were some who did not and ASHE would work with them to find employment.
Those who completed a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment will be presented with certificates at ASHE’s graduation night in November.
