Diploma of Project Management

What is the Project Management Diploma?

The Project Management Diploma (BSB50820) is an internationally recognised qualification in project management delivered through training, coaching, certification and assessment. This 4-day hands‐on course will equip you with the fundamental principles and skills of project management based upon the world-renowned best practice of PRINCE2® and to develop these as competencies during the assessment period.

The areas covered during the diploma include;

  • Manage project scope
  • Manage project time
  • Manage project quality
  • Manage project cost
  • Manage project human resources
  • Manage project information and communication
  • Manage project risk
  • Manage project integration.

The project management diploma differs from a traditional PRINCE2 certification by offering a broader scope of coverage, as well as a different method of assessment. Participants in the diploma are required to provide a portfolio of project documentation after completing the training to demonstrate their competency across the main nine areas of coverage.

Upon successful achievement of your project management diploma qualification post course development pathways include credits towards higher level qualifications, professional recognition by the Australian Institute of Project Management and certifications in PRINCE2® and PRINCE2 Agile® at Practitioner level.

The benefits of achieving the Diploma

Further information

This course is for anyone wishing to develop their knowledge and skills in project management through the application of the PRINCE2 method.

It is ideal for participants who are either new to project management or have recently been engaged in a project role and require a professional disciplined approach to their work.

The 4-day course will provide you with an overall understanding of the nine knowledge areas of project management as well as the principles, practices, and processes of PRINCE2®.

By the end of the course you will have developed your understanding of your case study project and will have produced some elementary management documentation to further develop and apply in the workplace.

You will also have gained an understanding of the required assessment process that leads to the award of the Diploma of Project Management. This assessment includes;

  • Completing the PRINCE2 Foundation exam
  • Participants completing and providing a portfolio of project documentation as evidence of their project management competencies. Each of the eight units of competency plus four elective units must be addressed and satisfied to achieve the diploma. There is a post‐course period of six months allowed for the participant to complete the assessment tasks.

In order for participants to attend the training they need to have access to an emerging workplace (the case study) project either as the project manager or team leader within the project organisation. The case study project will be considered and worked upon by the participant during the course and final documentation developed by the participant post course will be used to determine the participant’s competency for the award of the diploma.
