Career Pathways

Entry-level positions in project management include project team member and project coordinator under a project manager, with roles such as project manager or director to follow. Program management—managing many interrelated projects—and portfolio management—selecting the right project for the organisation to do—is a natural next step for some. Specialist areas such as scheduling, change management and risk management are also good niches to follow.

Any Project Management courses will give students a basic understanding of the balance required to manage schedule, cost and scope to result in a project output that is on time, on budget, quality and fit for purpose. Graduates will also learn the value of communication and stakeholder management and how to identify and treat risk.

The demand for project practitioners in different sectors will depend on the health of the individual industries, but in general the discipline is set to grow strongly over the next five years as organisations move towards conducting more project-based activities. While responsibility is great, a lucrative salary usually accompanies the role.

There are two main professional bodies that operate in Australia: the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM) is the national peak body, while the Project Management Institute (PMI) is a global association with chapters operating in Australia. Both offer professional certifications, education initiatives and networking opportunities for qualified members.

Project Management

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
