Seeking a qualification that provides you with the essential knowledge, skills and attributes to work effectively in a role that requires conceptual, operational and supervisory capabilities?

The Diploma of Project Management (BSB51415) is Australia’s leading qualification to perform a multitude of tasks ranging from managing human resources, managing information management systems, performance management, recruitment, selection and quality management.

Trends show organisations across the public and private sector becoming increasingly reliant on project-based business development. This, combined with the growth of the resources industry and IT sector, means project management skills are rising in demand. The professionalization of project management has also led to businesses and government departments looking for role candidates who have the appropriate qualifications behind them.

The Diploma of Project Management is for people who want to pursue a career in project management. It is ideal for project team members who would like to take the step into a project leader, facilitator, or project administrator role.

Based on the internationally recognised Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBoK), the Diploma of Project Management will help you develop the practical skills and knowledge required to design, implement, manage and close complex projects.

This diploma would suit those who would like to increase their sound theoretical knowledge base and use a range of specialised, technical or managerial competencies to plan, carry out and evaluate their own work and/or the work of a team.

It’s fantastic to feel a real boost to my professional confidence that has resulted from receiving the Advanced Diploma in Information Technology (Business Analysis). After 15 years of practising in this role across many domains and industries I now have a high level professional qualification to match my experience. This only came about because Steve Rowe from Courses Now took the time to advise me of the course details—thanks Steve and CoursesNow. Quote
