Assertiveness and healthy self-esteem are valuable attributes in today’s society, however being able to express thoughts and feelings in a confident, self-assured manner can be difficult for some. If this is you, it is actually not an issue as it’s also a skill that can be learned and refined!
Building Self-Esteem and Assertiveness Skills is an online program that will give you insights into understanding the different aspects of the communication process and help you apply effective techniques, both at work and in social settings.
In this personal development course, you will study how to identify and use a range of communication styles, and develop the appropriate listening and questioning skills.

When you study with Australian Online Courses, you will be assessed using a competency-based training method.
Competency-based training focuses on the achievement of skills and knowledge against set criteria to meet industry-standard and is not benchmarked against other students’ work.
In this course, the assessment will be comprised of written assignments and exercises, which may include short answer questions, reports, essays, research projects and reflective tasks.
If you do not achieve a competency result on your first attempt, you have two more attempts to pass your assessment. So, you have three attempts in total to obtain a competency result.
In this way, you can complete your course in your own time and at your own pace with the assistance of unlimited tutor support.
