How long will it take to complete?

The great thing with competency based training is that completion of a course is based on your ability to demonstrate your ability to perform to industry standard.  This allows you to complete at your own pace.

There are no exams in the course, it is very practical and based upon things you’re going to face in a project environment.

We provide students with the ability to complete the Certificate Iv Business Practice over a one year period; however we find that the average time is between 3 to 6 months.  During that time there is a large variance in the amount of time each student spends working on the qualification. 

Give us a call, email, use the chat or whatever is easiest and we can give you an estimate based on your situation as well as how your experience may help you complete faster.

What are the entry requirements?

There are no entry requirements into the Certificate IV Business Practice.  If you have a computer and an internet connection you’re set.

Having said that we believe that learning is most valuable when applied.  So it’s best to have a workplace or previous which you can use to apply your learning.

Our model isn’t geared for those coming straight out of school and find that most of our students come from one of two paths.

Ideally participants should hold a Certificate III in Business. However there are a number of other accepted qualifications from industry areas such as Business, Health and Safety etc.  Many participants of this program are tertiary qualified professionals looking to migrate into a project role.   

Many students enter this qualification without holding an existing qualifications. As the programs are designed based upon the work environment, experience within that environment is an acceptable point of entry.  In regards to the Certificate IV Business Practice, this may include but is not limited to experience within a business environment, or another technical field, this may be either as a team member, supervisor or leading hand.
