How to become a Project Coordinator 

It's possible to work as a Project Coordinator without any formal qualifications, however, employers prefer those who have studied project management.

If you're looking for a course that can give you skills in project management, studying a BSB50820 - Diploma of Project Management or BSB40920 - Certificate IV in Project Management Practice may be ideal qualifications in pursuing this role. 

I decided to show initiative and do this course to demonstrate that I would have the skills and knowledge to gain a promotion.
