Bunbury Summer Short Courses

The ECU Student Guild is subsidising costs for short courses over the Summer Break for its members, to help students further their employment opportunities.

This is one of many benefits afforded to Guild Members. Membership is free, and you can check if you are a member by logging into SIMO, clicking on “Service Questions” and ensuring you have not opted out of the free Membership.

For signing up to a Summer Short Course – you only need to make a partial contribution to the costs, the Guild will cover the rest, and you will be enrolled accordingly. For the AUSLAN, First Aid and Mental Health First Aid courses, please use the form to book your place and submit payment via credit card. For the Learner’s Permit Theory Test you must register your intention to take the test, book and sit your test and then upload your receipt to the Guild for reimbursement.

There are very limited places for these courses, so only one course per student is allowed. (However if you would like to do multiple courses, we can put you on the waiting list and if the courses do not fill up you can jump in to the available spots. Email to go on the waiting list.)

Once places are full the forms will terminate to avoid over booking.

Please review the course and its information, including what options are available in terms of times and dates of the course delivery  before you sign up and make payment to the Guild in this secure form. Payments may take up to five business days to appear in your transaction list.

If you have any queries about this process, please feel free to contact the Guild directly during its business hours on (08) 9780 7786, or email and someone will get back to you.

Queries relating to the content of the course should be sent to the provider of the course directly.
