If you want to learn great administrative skills and a broad knowledge base to get you a career or promotion in business, this is for you. You’ll gain confidence in yourself and earn respect from employers as you learn and apply business strategies.
The Certificate IV in Business course is perfect if you are looking for a more demanding/rewarding course that better reflects your abilities. It’s the next level up from the entry-level – and a step down from the Diploma – and your expected answers to assessments should match the increased depth and breadth of the content. It’s obviously more respected – and looks better on your resume – when you’re looking for a business or admin job or promotion. It flows naturally from the Certificate III in Business and is a good lead into the Diploma level.
You’ll learn about how a business operates and what is the best thing to do in a business environment. You could have 1 -2 years experience in an Admin Assistant role in a larger organisation, or a Team Leader or even an Office Manager for a smaller business. Some of the things you’ll do in your job at this level would include using some discretion in business practices, judgement and responsibility for the admin of the business, and applying relevant theoretical knowledge. You may even provide technical advice and support to a team. You’ll work with outside suppliers to purchase the right equipment, make sure they arrive on time and work properly. You might work under supervision, and may have some authority to delegate.
We’re pretty sure you’ll also get a lot of confidence to prepare you for work. You can learn how to do business stuff in a business environment, try a few things, get some feedback from our Mentors, and then become really good at this. You can slap your resume – complete with your new Qualification – onto the desk of the job interviewer knowing you’ve got what they want!
Who's It For?
If you love the buzz of getting stuff done in business, taking on some higher responsibilities, and working towards a collective goal, then this is for you. This is a more challenging course, designed for those who already have some work experience in business, and / or who want to start with a stronger, deeper course. There’s no pass or fail … we just stay with you until you have the skills and knowledge.
