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.

“I recently had the privilege of taking a refresher course on Microsoft Outlook, and it was nothing short of transformative. It was a wake-up call for me, realizing that I had been using Outlook for years, yet there was so much more to learn and exploit.”

-Wayne Lear, Familia Wealth - 06/02/2024

It’s always a pleasure to liaise with Priority Management. As a participant, I found the online workshop to be informative, educational, fun, and engaging.”

-Claire Diment, Australian Chamber Orchestra - 12/04/2023

“Thanks for putting on such amazing training sessions for our employees over the past 2 weeks, we have had incredible feedback about how valuable they found the Outlook training and how great a facilitator Dani is. One employee reached out saying it was the best training she has ever done, which is a testament to how good the content and facilitators are!”

-Sara Learmonth, L'Oréal - 11/05/23

-Thomas Davies, The University of Sydney - 28/06/2023

“A HUGE thank you for the OneNote training that I completed. Having completed courses previously, I was expecting similar basic content and a struggle to say engaged.

I learnt a lot and have already applied many of the skills that I learnt.”

-Kathleen Donohue - 21/07/2023

-Danielle, Elserver

"Thank you Mario & Jackie so much again for putting together such an insightful presentation. As I mentioned, the feedback so far has been really positive and a few people I have spoken to in the office today have already made some tweaks to their default settings. Mario's presentation skills were some of the best I’ve seen, and I was impressed with how you were able to navigate between screens despite the technical challenges. Thank you again and I really hope you have a lovely holiday!"

-Henry Drummond, The Law Society of NSW - 28/07/2023
