NRT   The Diploma of Project Management is designed to provide the skills and best practice framework and principles to ensure all workplace projects are completed to the level expected from both the organisation and its clients. Our program material is based on the latest benchmark publication, A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) version 5, which offers an understanding of project management skills and knowledge needed throughout the entire lifecycle of any project.
To complement the above project management areas, students will also gain invaluable knowledge in the areas of operational planning, continuous improvement, self-management and team leadership.

It is also ideal for new project managers who have managed a number of projects already. It would also suit more experienced project managers who have not had any formal project management training or management training. Business owners would also be suitable candidates for this qualification.

Job titles suitable for this course include project manager, business owner, senior project lead and business operator.

Further this qualification is suited to participants who possess a sufficient grasp of the English language, mathematics, adequate levels of intelligence, and an appropriate attitude and levels of motivation that will enable them to undertake the demands of a Diploma level of qualification.

Participants can complete this qualification through two different pathways:

- Training and Assessment
- Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) including: Recognition of current competency (RCC) and mutual recognition of qualifications and/or Statements of Attainment from other RTOs (Credit Transfer.)

Preferred pathways for candidates considering this qualification include:
- BSB51413 Certificate IV in Project Management Practices or other relevant qualification,


- With six to 12 months vocational experience in a project managerial role but without formal supervision or project management, management qualification.

After achieving the BSB51413 Diploma of Project Management, students may proceed to the Advanced Diploma of Project Management (BSB61215) or other Advanced Diploma qualifications.
