Depending on Recognition of Prior Learning

Graduates of the Project Planning Breakthrough courses can now gain a BSB50820 Diploma of Project Management qualification.

We can complete this with you and your organisation by means of:

  1. Recognition of Prior Learning through an evidence portfolio and an assessment. We provide each candidate an assessment book which outlines the type of evidence they need to provide in order to show that they are competent in each area. Coaching is provided via organised phone and WebEx meeting throughout the process. Students then have a workplace assessment linked to their evidence portfolio.
  2. A face to face method which is offered in flexible options. This can be done either as a week, or over a number of days across several months, evening classes, or weekend delivery. These flexible solutions will offer you and your organisation the opportunity to complete the programs with support from the dedicated Facilitator and assessor of these programs who will work with your team to ensure the practical application and knowledge, with the theory and skills are met for you.

Priority Management is a globally recognised training provider with the Project Management Institute. Graduates of Priority Management’s Project Planning Breakthroughs can obtain Professional Development Units.
