Online Courses

We are able to offer a range of FREE online courses, which volunteers and staff from volunteer-involving groups or organisations in Dorset can complete at a time and date to suit. Courses do not need to be completed in one go. Online courses are offered via Virtual College with a certificate of completion provided. 

The courses we currently have available are listed below. Please click on the course name to read the course details from the Virtual College website (you will see prices when you click on the links, but please disregard these). We can add new courses to our portfolio as well and are happy to consider requests for additional courses as required.
