Are there any prerequisites for the qualifications?

Each course page will outline the specific requirements. Experience and some exposure in formal education is useful.

How do I receive my learning materials?

All materials are delivered via our Learning Management System (EngLearn). Online students will find everything they need here while students who have selected the blended delivery will also need to register for their face to face components.

How do I receive my assessment materials?

All materials are delivered via our Learning Management System (EngLearn).

What support does my assessor provide?

There will be two main points of support provided by your assessor:

  • The first is an initial meeting to establish a plan and identify current competency
  • The second is a final overall assessment meeting (assuming the evidence is appropriate and complete)

Throughout the duration of the course, candidates can contact the assessor and other students through EngLearn (LMS), through the discussions area and email.

If the candidate requires coaching assistance, this can be provided by the Assessor or arranged through other suitably qualified people for an agreed fee.

Some limited coaching forms part of the assessment; however, any intensive work or work that requires a considerable injection of time will attract an extra fee.

How do I contact my assessor?

You will receive an email or phone call from your assessor as an introduction and they will then provide their contact details for future use. The details for your assessor will also be located on EngLearn (LMS) under the welcome page.

How do I withdraw from the course if I no longer wish to continue?

If you no longer wish to continue the course you will need to request a withdrawal form and complete this. Once you are past the 28 days of your course there is no return of fees paid (unless there are exceptional circumstances). Please see our Terms and Conditions page for full details.

Does this Diploma help towards Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification with the Project Management Institute (PMI)?

The PMP requires experience, education, and an exam. The basis of the exam is the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBoK) and a detailed knowledge of the PMBoK Guide is essential.

Our courses are based on PMBoK as are the Australian Diploma of Project Management competency standards. Therefore obtaining a Diploma will assist with the knowledge and experience requirements; however you will still have to demonstrate 4-5 years’ work experience, and the education requirements of 35 hours.

Note: An Australian Diploma is an “associate” Diploma level on American scales.
