Due to the holistic nature of the program, it requires a nine (9) day face-to-face commitment and there are no credits for partial completion. Only completion of all assessment elements of the program will result in the award of a BSB51415 Diploma of Project Management.
Student support and monitoring of self-directed (unsupervised) activities will be via email and phone support to the MTS Trainer/Assessor and/or dedicated Client Administrator.
MTS will develop individual study plans for participants in the event that they are unable to attend a module due to illness or other unforeseen circumstance. Please note that this is on a case by case basis.
To aid learning, we deliver the program on a project life-cycle basis, and incorporate our client organisation’s project management methodology, process and tools into the delivery. Our own comprehensive materials are supported by a text book as well as activities and assessment scenarios which can be contextualised to our client’s operating environment.
