Course Structure

The Diploma of Project Management is delivered by expert trainers in one of three delivery methods: online, classroom or blended.

The online program provides full access to our customised online learning environment, MyUpskilled. 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.  MyUpskilled features powerpoint resources, reading materials, discussion boards, forums, access to assessments, resources, videos and blogs.  Students receive regular training and assessment contact throughout the course.

Our classroom delivery requires attendance at 7 x full day workshops scheduled across 9 months of this 12 month program. This format 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 effective and efficient management of major projects at an advanced level.
