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 Diploma of Business (Procurement) 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.

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.
