Course Information

Our Project and Program Management courses have been developed according to the requirements of the Business Services Training Package (BSB) and have been approved for delivery by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA). They are nationally recognised qualifications within the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).


Training is delivered in stages which correspond to AQF Levels V and VI. The preferred pathway for a qualification is for students to complete the requirements of the previous level qualification before progressing to the next level – thereby achieving more than one qualification. Applicants without the previous level qualification will be considered if they have relevant qualification and/or relevant work experience.

We aim to equip our graduates with the necessary skills and knowledge to enable them to successfully satisfy the demands of the workplace.


Delivery and assessment strategies are selected to reflect the nature of the elements and performance criteria of the competency together with the needs and learning style of the participants. Qualifications are delivered over 20 hours per week, 16 hours face-to-face and 4 hours online learning.

Assessment methodology may include but is not limited to: observation, project/ report, case study, role play, exercises, activities; and written/oral tasks including multiple choice, questions and answer, essays, true/false and presentations.
