Courses Direct Australia has 200 online possibilities for you to consider in your personal growth and professional development. With our base located in Newcastle, NSW we have made it our mission to provide education to everyone in Australia from the highly populated cities to the far reaching rural areas of Australia. We can provide education to everyone, no matter where you are.

Founded in 2008, Courses Direct was the dream for our CEO Kevin Thompson to be able to make education accessible to every Australian no matter what their geographical boundaries were. From a small town in Newcastle NSW, Courses Direct came to fruition with the dedication of Kevin and our team of passionate staff who set about providing the best courses and creating long standing partnerships with other providers who were like minded.

With the development of ELearning, we were able to provide courses that educate Australians for both personal and professional reasons. Studying can be both rewarding and motivational, driving most students to take the initiative to develop a career or continue their thirst for knowledge.

We see an opportunity as something that students can experience through undertaking education. It creates the opportunity for personal attributes such as building a strong work ethic and self-discipline which are admired traits both personally as well as professionally.

Our plan for the future is to continue providing the best possible service to our students with a constant focus on the learning experience and what we can do to take education to the next level.

We hope to make education accessible to more students with Courses Direct taking the ELearning experience worldwide and reducing the limitations that other countries may face in the provision of distance education.
