Have you ever experienced working in a team and realised you could be a better leader than the person managing the project? The problem is, you lack the qualifications to show your current or potential employer that you’re right for the job. This might be the perfect time to enrol in a Diploma or Certificate IV in Project Management. They’re qualifications that can help you master the process of project management and develop the skills you need, including an understanding of project scope, communication, costs, time, stakeholder engagement, and risk management, so you can be effective at meeting project deadlines with ease.
The Diploma of Project Management will provide foundational knowledge in project planning, initiating, executing, and evaluating the most complicated proposals while strengthening your abilities to lead a team. A Certificate IV, however, serves as an introductory certification for those who are new to the industry or are just developing their knowledge-base.
If time is a barrier to beginning your studies, you can undertake online classes to work around your schedule. All our courses are flexible and can be completed wherever you have access to a computer and an internet connection. Another way to earn the Certificate IV or Diploma of Project Management is by applying for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). This process will assess your competency, which you may have acquired through informal and formal learning to see if you can meet the requirements for the course. Consider this route if you already have sufficient experience in project management, and you want to qualify sooner.
Once you earn your qualification, you’ll have a better chance of getting hired or promoted to Project Leader, Program Administrator, or Project Management Facilitator. An employer can better recognise your ability to manage and lead projects when you can show that you have the Certificate IV or Diploma of Project Management.
