Short Hospitality Courses

5-day hospitality courses

Are you interested in hospitality work but don’t have the skills or experience? Then we have a great opportunity for you!

Busy hospitality venues across the Fraser Coast have plenty of vacancies, but not a lot of time to train – meaning they need job-ready workers as much as possible.

To address this skills gap and support local people into local work, Jobs Fraser Coast is partnering with the Local Jobs program, Strategix Training Group and Hervey Bay RSL to run a hands-on course that will give participants genuine job-ready skills.


Course Details

Course dates:

March 6-10



9am-4pm each day


Hervey Bay RSL

Course information: Spend 3 days learning theory and practical skills, including Responsible Service of Alcohol and how to serve food and beverage, and 2 days getting on-the-job experience with expert mentors.

The costs

  • Full fee $490, or FREE for Workforce Australia clients (pending eligibility and approval)
  • Other funding or subsidy options may be available – please discuss these on inquiry.


Who can participate

The course is open to anyone of all ages – including mature candidates looking for new opportunities – but not all participants will be eligible for funding or subsidies. However, we urge people to see this course as an investment in their future – it will teach practical skills, expose you to employers and lead to genuine job prospects.

  • Nationally recognised units that form part of a Certificate III in Hospitality (SITHFAB002 Provide Responsible Service of Alcohol, SITHFAB007 Serve Food & Beverage)
