Accessing your Course



When you have paid for your course, an Enrolment Summary will appear with a ‘View Course’ box. Please click on that box to commence.


If you are having difficulty accessing your micro-credential course for the first time or are attempting to log back into the site after you have created your account, it may be that you are not entering your details into the correct section. 

Please go to Be Different and click on ‘CPD Micro-Credential Courses’.

  • If you created your account using the ‘Don’t have an account? Sign up now’ (red arrow and box below), then log in with your registered account (above the ‘Email Address’).
  • If you chose ‘Continue with Google’ option to create your account you will need to use this option when you log in again (blue arrow and box below).
  • If you chose ‘Continue with Microsoft’ option to create your account you will need to use this option when you log in again (orange arrow and box below).
  • If you are an existing CQUniversity student (i.e. Higher Education [degree or post-graduate] or VET [certificate or diploma]), and you have an existing CQU account (student ID number and CQU email address), you may use ‘CQUniversity Account’ (green arrow and box below) to create your account OR you may use the ‘Don't have an account? Sign up now’ option to create your account. When you log in next time, as a CQUniversity student, you can use both options ‘CQUniversity account’ and 'Registered' account.
  • Whichever option you have used to initially create your account, please enter the SAME email and password details when you log in again to access your micro-credential.
  • If you have forgotten your password, click on the ‘Forgot you Password’ link circled in red below.


You should now have access to your course.

Our micro-credential courses are hyperflexible, self-guided and self-paced, meaning you can undertake the study in your own time at your own pace. You can stop and start your course at your leisure. To go back into your micro-credential, please follow the instructions above.

The duration time indicated for your course provides an approximate estimate of how long it will take you to complete all course materials (including readings, videos and activities) as well as undertake the relevant quiz. This is a merely a guide.
