MVDTI offers several online courses, but it can be hard to decide what to study and what are the most lucrative and popular qualifications out there. So, because we’re super helpful and awesome, we made this nifty list of the most popular study options at MVDTI. They are:

A National Vocational Certificate in Air conditioning and refrigeration from Level 1-4 for four (4) years 

Offered on CBET system, this qualification provides competencies to select components, install, set up, test, fault find, repair and maintain refrigeration systems and equipment that apply to food storage and preservation, air conditioning and air distribution equipment in buildings and premises. It includes regulatory requirements for purchasing and handling refrigerants. This course is both online and physical, as practical training and assessment will be conducted on a face-to-face basis. The future is in the hands of the air conditioning and refrigeration technicians. 

A short course in Entrepreneurship (3 months)

Whether you are starting a company, launching a new division in an established one, or seeking to invest in new ventures, entrepreneurial and business skills are crucial to identifying and evaluating the factors that will make your undertaking a success. This well rounded short programme integrates all business areas including marketing, finance, operations, and strategy, and takes students beyond the classroom allowing them to test themselves in real-world settings. 

A Career Channeling program for TVET (3 months)

This course aims to create an opportunity for the academically less competent individuals to acquire a more flexible route for Technical & Vocational Training. With the above understanding, MVDTI has resolved as an institution to provide the local community with an affordable yet effective technical and vocational education & training (TVET) familiarization and career guidance program. This will be achieved through a three (3) months short course in which the students will be exposed to various TVET courses in our government & private vocational education and training centres (VTC’s) across the country. 

Short course Food safety modernization (3 months)

This course aims to address the emerging needs for food safety. Consumers all over the world are becoming increasingly concerned about the safety of food. Recent outbreak cases related to food safety have added to these concerns. Globally, people are not only demanding more food, but also a safe supply of food. Globalization of the food supply has increased the risk of spreading foodborne diseases internationally. 

Online Short course in Draught dispense technology

Beer is great. That’s something we can all agree on (the fact that you’re reading this is probably proof of that). While cracking open a can or bottle of ice-cold beer is always a refreshing experience, there is nothing better than a freshly poured pint of your favourite beer on draft. This program introduces you to several different ways to get draft beer from a keg to your glass. A typical dispense system pumps carbon dioxide gas (or a CO2/nitrogen gas blend, commonly referred to as beer gas) into the keg which forces the beer out of the keg through beer lines to a faucet where it is poured into a beer-clean glass.

Online Short course in Refrigerant handling and environmental protection (3 months)

Chlorofluorocarbons contained in some refrigerants are considered ozone-depleting compounds and therefore damaging to the environment. Environmental stakeholders require a Refrigerant Compliance Program to prevent releases of chlorofluorocarbons into the atmosphere. Refrigerants in the workplaces are managed by maintenance groups and contractors during the maintenance, service, repair, and/or disposal of air-conditioning and refrigeration equipment. This course trains students on some of these issues. 

Online Short Course in Hairdressing (3 months)

This short course offers you a chance to learn from the experts, industry-experienced cosmetologists, graduate with confidence and be equipped to build your career as a hair, beauty or massage professional.
