Working with animals
Some of our most popular online courses in New Zealand involve working with animals. If you love animals and want to see them happy and healthy, our Vet Assistant course might just be perfect for you. Otherwise, consider making an impact on animals’ lives with a course in Animal Welfare!
Pet care is also an incredibly lucrative industry in New Zealand and it’s boomed over the course of the pandemic, with more people welcoming pets into their home due to shifting work patterns.

Courses in agriculture and farming
If there’s one lucrative industry with career satisfaction and staying power, it’s Agriculture. The great outdoors is your office and you get to work on the land every day. Agriculture has always been one of the biggest industries in New Zealand, both in domestic production and the value of exports.
In fact, it adds a gross value of 12.89bn dollars to the country’s GDP. New Zealand is also one of the world’s largest exporters of dairy products and sheep meat. We have a series of high-quality Cattle Farming courses available with dedicated courses in Dairy, Beef and Livestock Management.
If you’re more interested in growing produce, check out our courses on Agronomy, Viticulture and Certificate in Agriculture. We also have a course all about Organic Farming and Sustainable Agriculture, if you’re passionate about making the farming industry more environmentally friendly.
Online lifestyle courses

If you’re interested in travel and tourism, we have courses on Ecotourism, Adventure Tourism and getting into the Bed & Breakfast Business. From here, you can start your own business, make the world a better place and offer authentic travel experiences.
Personal and professional transformation coaching has also grown to become some of the most in-demand jobs in light of the pandemic with many people pausing to re-evaluate what they want from their lives. The industry grew by 51% in 2020!
Building a career in this industry can be highly rewarding as you get to guide people towards a life they thrive in.

Small business, admin and reception courses

Our popular short business course, Project Management and Leadership is perfect for those who want to gain the confidence to take their current role to leadership level. It can also pave the way for opportunities in project management, an in-demand industry with an expected growth of 33% by 2027!
Another valuable skill is bookkeeping and administration in small trade and construction. Both small trade and construction are huge industries in New Zealand, however, many small to medium companies struggle when it comes to the admin, bookkeeping and tax side of their business.
