This is a Face to Face Part Time course. You will need to attend approximately 1.3 hours of class, over 1 day a week, for 18 months. As well as the in-class component, you will need to complete approximately 2.5 hours of other study per week.

You may also be required to complete additional study each week outside of class hours, including research and accessing workplace documents.

Individuals enrol and work through the required number of units by attending face-to-face workshop sessions, accessing scheduled and ad hoc one on one or group tutorial assistance and accessing blended resources. Workshop attendance is not compulsory, but is highly recommended. Students may attend all workshops or they may decide to complete their course through a combination of workshops and blended learning if this suits their circumstances.


This broad-based human resources management course is not industry specific but rather is relevant to all industry sectors and organisations. The primary target groups for this course includes:

  • The student cohort represents existing workers, who are aspiring to work in the area of human resources, from a diverse range of businesses and industry contexts. These students have assumed responsibility for their own performance and are self-directed. These students come with experience, knowledge, skills and attributes that demonstrate their potential for working in this complex area. They illustrate some experience in organising and monitoring their own output.
  • This cohort have the capability to solve problems and apply solutions to a range of defined predictable and unpredictable problems. They are able to analyse and evaluate information from a variety of sources.
  • This course is aimed at existing workers who have been in the workforce for at least 12 months and who may be already working in or have relieved in a human resources or supervisory role. Alternatively, if a student has also completed the Certificate III or IV in Business, this provides sound foundation skills and knowledge that are built upon in this course
  • Individuals who have experience in an operational or administrative role and who are seeking to develop expertise across a range of human resource functions. They may also possess some theoretical business skills and knowledge and wish to consolidate and build pathways to further educational or employment opportunities. Many are mature age and have previous qualifications
  • Those people who are unable to commit to workshop attendance because they are unable to access a campus, face travel challenges or work or personal circumstance, but who still want a personal relationship with and support from a teacher.
