The Certificate IV in Small Business Management is delivered by expert trainers in 7 x full day workshops scheduled across 9 months of this 12 month program. This approach allows students sufficient time between and after workshop completion to undertake self-directed learning, assignments, and out-of-class assessment. Workshops engage participants in active discussion, problem-solving exercises, networking opportunities, and presentations related to the efficient conduct of administrative business operations and procedures.
Participants have the option of undertaking this course online, using Upskilled's customised Learning Management System. The online program is conducted over a 12 month period and employs an approach that blends distance and online education in the management and delivery of learning resources.
