Let’s step this out a bit more: Step 1. We conduct a free qualification appraisal and give you a report. The RPL process begins with a conversation with one of our Skills Recognition Advisors.
  • You tell us what you’re looking for and where you want to go
  • You provide a few easily accessible documents
  • You’ll be sent a report within 48 hours. This will include a breakdown of costs involved and lists the qualifications:
    • you could be eligible for right now;
    • you could be eligible for if you are able to provide some further evidence (and we’ll share with you what the gaps are and the evidence we’d need); or
    • if training would be your best option. We don’t offer the training so we’ll give you some information about how to locate a training organisation who delivers what you are looking for.
This is cost-free and obligation-free. Step 2. You tell us the qualifications you want and provide evidence You can make an informed decision about which qualifications are best for you and your career. Once this is confirmed, we can complete the process.

A total of 10 units of competency must be completed in Advanced Diploma of Business. The units of competency required are:

  • 5 core units
  • 5 elective units

The starting point for this qualification is addressing the 5 core units.

Core units are mandatory for every student completing Advanced Diploma of Business. When you look at the core units you can see that these key competencies sit comfortably with having oversight of an organisation. The core units highlight the application of critical thinking in solving the complex problems in an organisation.

There is management of finances and the development and implementation of business plans. In a reflection of modern business values, the core units also look at the leadership in corporate social responsibility and the importance of overseeing the digital strategy an organisation adopts.

Once the core units have been addressed, you complete your Advanced Diploma of Business with a balance of elective units that focus on issues senior managers are responsible for:

  • Managing the organisation’s knowledge and information
  • Navigating organisational change
  • Workplace safety
  • Communication

To enrol in the Advanced Diploma of Business, there are criteria (known as pre-requisites) you need to meet.

There are 2 pathways to meet these mandatory pre-requisites to the Advanced Diploma of Business.

  • You can have two years equivalent and relevant full-time experience in a workplace with an operational or leadership role OR,
  • You can have previously completed a Diploma or Advanced Diploma from the BSB Training Package (current or superseded equivalent versions).

For example, you might hold a Diploma of Leadership and Management or a Diploma of Business.

The list of suitable qualifications is wider than these two qualifications but they give you an idea. If you have a qualification that has the code BSB then is followed by the number 5 (so it looks like this BSB5xxxx) then you are going to meet the requirements.

The team at Churchill Education is happy to talk with you about your eligibility to enrol in the Advanced Diploma of Business.
