Are your courses accredited?
Yes. We are a Registered Training Organisation (Provider Code 70229). All our event programs are nationally recognised and approved under the Australian Quality Skills Authority (ASQA).
Are your qualifications recognised internationally?
While our courses are nationally recognised and regularly endorsed by industry, they are not formally recognised overseas. However, Australian qualifications such as ours are highly regarded internationally and often acknowledged as ‘best practice’.
How are your courses delivered?
Our Event Manager Diploma is delivered either On Campus or Online although students are able to enjoy a blend of both with either study option eg If you choose our On Campus study option, you will also complete some of your coursework online. If you choose the Online study option you will have the option to access campus facilities. See more.
Our Event Starter Certificate III is delivered exclusively online. All online students access our customised Cloud Campus, our Industry Engagement Program and our in-house event recruitment service, Event Jobs Online. See more.
Are your courses practical?
Employers want to see evidence of practical experience in events. That’s why our Industry Engagement Program is such an integral and practical component of all our courses including our online options. You will have a required amount of engagement hours to fulfill but unlike other colleges you won’t be on your own searching for your own industry placement. We have connections to over 600 industry contacts providing you with fabulous volunteering, internship and paid opportunities on events of all kinds. There are so many opportunities to choose from you won’t have any trouble finding roles that suit your schedule and your interest. By the end of your course you will have gained hours of practical experience working on events and, importantly, you will receive countless opportunities to build your network of contacts. See more.
What’s the difference between On Campus and Online learning?
Studying On Campus is an immersive study experience catering for those wanting the structure of a regular timetable and those who might benefit from a ‘face-to-face’ learning environment. Studying Online gives students the flexibility they require for study while keeping to existing work schedules or family commitments.
Note that course content, industry engagement opportunities, learning support, industry networks and job opportunities remain the same for both On Campus and Online students.
Will I have assessments?
Yes. Assessments are spread throughout the course to enable students and lecturers to effectively monitor performance and manage study loads. A range of methods are used to assess student progress including quizzes, practical, research reports, presentations, folios, hypotheticals and case study analysis.
What is the entry criteria for my course?
