Program Description

Project management opens up opportunities for individuals in a wide range of industries and is an essential skill in any business. The Diploma of Project Management should empower students with the confidence to manage projects in a variety of contexts, and across a number of industry sectors. Students will gain a solid foundational knowledge in key areas of project management, and how to achieve project outcomes. By the end of program, students should come away with the ability to use a range of specialised, technical, and managerial skills to initiate, plan, execute, and evaluate their own work and/or the work of others.

In all of our programs, you will build a timetable which combines 6 hours per week of online study and 14 hours per week of in-class study. The online study component includes exercises, discussion forums, and resources to help with assignments and to provide foundational academic and learning skills. In-class study schedules combine the core lecture with foundation skills and PASS classes.
