  1. Hi i got reffered to scope by a friend who just completed the cert iv pm course. just wondering as she was able to finish the whole course within a couple of weeks. Will i be able to do the same or does it take 6 months?

    • Hi Vanessa,

      Unsure who your friend was, but yes it can easily be completed within a couple of weeks. As the assessments are practical those with existing project management experience are normally able to submit their work documents to assist in the completion. Most of our students are actually working in Project Management and as a result find that they have in many cases already completed a vast majority of the assessment requirements. Everyone is different though and as a guide you can use the “how long will it take me to complete” section on the website for each qualification. I can also put you in touch with a consultant if you like who can look at your current evidence and give you an indication of what additional work load there may be.

      Kind Regards

  11. Hi there,

    I have no project management experience and do have access to a workplace but not in a project management capacity. However, I would like to get into project management in the future, would I be able to do this course?


    • Hi Dylan,
      Certificate IV is a great entry-level of study into a new career progression. No previous experience is required and the assessments are based more on theoretical projects rather than work-related projects.
      I have sent you an email separately with more details about this.
      Have a great day!
