TCF North West – BSB40920 Certificate IV in Project Management Practice
Why should I take this course?
Project management is a powerful tool for addressing the complex needs of today’s organisations.
Unlike narrowly focused fields – such as HR, marketing, finance or IT – project management brings together an array of skill sets spanning creative and critical thinking, leadership, risk, change and stakeholder management.
Simply put, project management provides a structured yet flexible framework for tackling a diverse range of initiatives faster, better and in a cost-efficient manner.
That is why project management is the most in-demand occupation in the world today.
What will I learn?
The Institute of Project Management’s BSB40920 Certificate IV in Project Management Practice will be delivered over a series of workshops for capped cohorts of up to 20 candidates.
Our expert facilitators leverage your latent project experience, connecting a common frame of reference, common purpose and common-sense approach to the cohesive delivery and oversight of professional and personal projects.
Over the course of the program, dedicated project teams progress through a range of practical activities in the delivery of a fully simulated project.
What should I bring to class?
A laptop – once enrolled, you will be able to access the digital resources that support the day’s learning; alternately, you can download and print the paper versions if you are more comfortable working with the old-school tools of the trade.
Is there homework?
The workshops are self-contained in that you complete assessment activities in class with no on-going homework requirements.
That said, to graduate the BSB40920 Certificate IV in Project Management Practice you are required to identify a project you have recently made a significant contribution to and critically reflect upon its performance.
This capstone report is completed using the template provided and undertaken at the completion of the workshop series with full mentor support.
Where will it take me?
The BSB40920 Certificate IV in Project Management Practice is a prerequisite for candidates considering the BSB50820 Diploma of Project Management.
