Through completing one of the courses listed above, you’ll have the opportunity to find employment in the following roles:

  • Project Manager
  • Project Leader
  • Team Leader
  • Project Contract Manager
  • ICT Project Manager
  • E-Business Project Manager
  • Project Analysis
  • Change Manager
  • Project Administrator

Types of Courses Available

There’s plenty of project management courses to choose from, with many allowing you to pursue an area of interest, such as building management courses or even a business analyst specialisation. Courses are available across the country, so whether you’re looking at project management in Sydney or online courses in Melbourne; there’s an option for you.

Certificate:

A TAFE Certificate, like the Certificate IV in Project Management or the Certificate IV in Project Management Practice, is designed to give students fundamental and introductory knowledge on this profession. By the end of the course, you’ll have a good understanding of what this occupation entails and an idea about whether this is a career path that you would like to pursue. At the certificate level, construction project management courses are a very popular option, and this area is only continuing to grow in demand.

Diploma:

A Diploma or Advanced Diploma in Project Management goes one step further than a Certificate. These nationally recognised courses will typically take two years to complete and will explore topics in greater detail. You’ll learn how to apply your knowledge to a range of workplace settings.

Postgraduate:

A postgraduate course will improve your employment or promotion prospects considerably, as you’ll gain extensive knowledge and highly specialised skills that any current or potential employer will value. You’ll graduate job-ready and prepared to work in a wide range of industries. One of the most popular courses of this type is the Bachelor of Project Management, or, some choose to pursue a Bachelor of Business and take up Project Management as a Major. Either way, these courses typically take three years to complete and are crucial if you want to access higher career goals as a manager or executive.

With an abundance of options such as project management courses in Sydney or project management courses in Melbourne, you can achieve a reputable qualification no matter your location.

Job Outlook for a Contract, Program and Project Administrator

  • High job opening growth is expected for this profession over the five years leading to November 2019.
  • $1,387 is the median weekly earnings (before tax) for this occupation.
  • Most (25.6%) Contract, Program and Project Administrators have completed a Bachelor Degree, making it the most common level of education. Only 18.2% have completed a postgraduate qualification.
  • The median age of this occupation is 42 years old.

Study Online or In-class

Depending on the course you choose, you’ll have the option to complete a Project Management TAFE course either in-class or online.

If flexibility is a major consideration for you, online learning will suit you perfectly. With this approach, you have the power to fit your education around your other commitments, by choosing when and where you study.

Alternatively, if you feel as though face-to-face interaction and more of a structured learning environment will help get the best out of you, in-class courses would be ideal.

Is This Profession Right for You?

If you enjoy a dynamic and busy work environment, where you’ll have to multi-task and manage conflicting priorities, this profession may be just what you’re looking for. Every time a project is completed, you’ll feel as though you played a significant role in its success.

What Do You Do as a Project Manager?

As the name suggests, you’ll be managing various projects. Depending on the industry, you could be working on major business, engineering, IT or even construction projects. Your role is basically to ensure everything is running smoothly, so deadlines and other targets are met.

Essential Skills

According to the Australian Governments Job Outlook Initiative, the five most critical skills are active listening, reading comprehension, speaking, critical thinking and monitoring.

Qualified project managers have invaluable skills

In Australia alone, the number of jobs for project managers has more than doubled over the past 10 years.

The leading project management certificates and diplomas below are designed for different needs and experience levels – from starting as a project coordinator, to boost your current skills and preparing for a senior project management role.

However, the overall objectives are the same. You will learn to lead, work and communicate well with others – often in departments as diverse as marketing, IT and human resources. You will manage time, funding, scheduling and resources. You will solve problems, document results – and achieve them in the least amount of time. And these skills can be applied to any industry.

Study online, in class, full time, or at your own pace through leading TAFEs, colleges and universities to gain the skills and qualifications in one of the world’s most in-demand career specialties.
