Diploma in Project Management
This course will teach you the theoretical knowledge to effectively project-manage different types of ventures. You’ll learn a range of specialised, technical and managerial competencies, giving you the ability to develop leadership skills and achieve project objectives.
This diploma has been designed to teach you how to apply project management skills in a variety of workplace contexts. You’ll undertake a selection of units selected to meet current industry demands, which will equip you with the skills to procure new business projects and manage others.
Project managers oversee a business venture, project or strategy, usually from inception to conclusion. They provide guidance and maintain the progress of various stakeholders in order to reduce risk, maximise benefit, and maintain budgets and costings as directed in the planning phase.
As this is an advanced course, it would be suitable for you if you currently work in an environment that allows you to be involved in project management, or if you have some relevant industry experience or prior study in business.
You’ll learn how to initiate, plan, execute and evaluate your own work, as well as the work of others.
