The Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) provides a comprehensive, nationally consistent framework for all qualifications in post-compulsory education and training in Australia. In the vocational education and training sector it assists national consistency for all trainees, learners, employers and providers by enabling national recognition of Qualifications and Statements of Attainment.
The Australian vocational education and training system is recognised as among the most sophisticated in the world because it is:
- Industry led – employers and industry representatives define what outcome is required from training.
- National – the system is jointly managed by state, territory and Australian governments.
- Client focused – it is flexible and relevant and responsive to client needs
As a mark of quality, IPM has also received delegated authority from the regulator, the Australian Skills Quality Authority. Delegation of regulatory responsibility is awarded to high performing RTOs that meet the following conditions:
- the RTO must have been registered for at least five years
- the RTO must have been renewed by ASQA without audit, or have been renewed with no non-compliances identified at audit, and
- there must be no outstanding regulatory concerns or regulatory actions being taken against the RTO.
The Institute of Project Management (IPM) is accredited by the Australian government (RTO 60154) to deliver the following qualifications:
- BSB41515 Certificate IV in Project Management Practice
- BSB51415 Diploma of Project Management
- BSB51615 Diploma of Quality Auditing
- BSB80415 Graduate Diploma of Portfolio Management
IPM’s qualifications introduce the only AQF accredited curriculum aligned to the project lifecycle (as opposed to knowledge areas or units). Not only does this intuitively reflect how projects are delivered in the real world; it significantly streamlines your assessment.
Our teaching approach is further designed to encourage and support the development of critical thinking and reasoning, analytical ability, emotional and professional maturity in dealing with team members, and selecting appropriate project management strategies. Instructional techniques can include facilitated workshops, group discussions, analysis of case studies, and the interactive use of multimedia resources.
Taken together with our exclusive unlimited, on-demand project mentor support, our graduates are not just good at tests – they are job ready.
