Advanced Diploma of Events
This qualification provides the skills and knowledge for an individual to be competent in wide-ranging, highly specialised technical event management skills with a strategic research, planning and communication focus. Event organisation and management takes place across the full spectrum of business and community activity. The qualification has particular relevance in the community, cultural, hospitality, sporting and tourism sectors.
Work would be undertaken in both an office environment where event planning and organisation takes place, and at an event site.
The qualification reflects the role of individuals who analyse, design and execute judgements using wide-ranging technical, creative, conceptual or managerial competencies. Their knowledge base may be specialised or broad. These individuals are often accountable for group outcomes.
The qualification is not suitable for an Australian apprenticeship pathway.
Individuals with this qualification are able to work in a range of organisations where event management takes place, and such organisations are diverse in nature. Examples include professional conference organisers, exhibition and event management companies, sporting associations, community organisations, hospitality and cultural venues.
