Overview

At the Certificate IV level you are someone who is able to work autonomously, and apply project management skills in a variety of contexts. You are likely to be a member of a project team, responsible for undertaking certain components of the overall project delivery. You are in a support role, not responsible for the overall outcome. You are adept at using project tools and methods to support the aims of the project.

There are no pre-requisites to enrol in the Certificate IV in Project Management Practice. It is comprised of nine units of competency – three of which are core units (compulsory) and six elective units (which allows some range to match your experience or interests to particular units).

How does the RPL process work?

  1. We conduct a free qualification appraisal and give you a report
  2. You tell us the qualifications you want and provide work examples
  3. You receive nationally recognised qualifications!

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 work examples (and we’ll share with you what the gaps are and the work examples 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 work examples
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.

  • We tell you exactly what work examples we need to establish your competency in the units that make up a qualification
  • You provide your work examples, then you can sit back and relax!
  • We match the work examples to the units. This is called mapping. Other providers may get you to do this yourself.

Step 3. You receive nationally recognised qualifications!
Congratulations! Your experience has been validated and translated into nationally recognised qualifications.

  • To save you time, we submit all the paperwork to the government for you. This formalises your qualifications.
  • You receive your qualifications though both email and post, within 14 days. Or, with our VIP Fast-Track Service, you can have them in just 7 days.
