  • The amount of training required to complete this course comprises three items:

    • Self-paced study hours
    • Assessment hours

    Self-paced study hours

    Theory before practice! Self-paced study refers to the time required to read and understand the course content before tackling the formative and summative assessments. We recommend allocating at least 15 hours per week to self-paced study throughout your course enrolment period. Please note that some modules will require more self-paced study due to the nominal hours and volume of learning required.

     

    Assessment hours

    Assessment hours refers to the expected time you should allocate towards completing the assessment activities in each module, such as the formative and summative assessments. Every unit is different, and some modules will take longer to complete than others. The overall time taken to complete these assessments will also depend on other factors, such as time commitment and familiarity with the course content.

     

    Independent research

    To complete activities within your assessments, you will be required to undertake additional independent research. Independent research includes researching relevant websites to further your knowledge and application of completing the assessments.

     

    Volume of Learning

    The volume of learning for the BSB51415 Diploma of Project Management as a Learning and Assessment pathway is typically one to two years (1200 – 2400 hours).  On average if you were to study for a minimum of 10 to 20 hours per week, you may be able to complete the course in 6 -12 months. This may vary according to prior skills and knowledge.

TESTIMONIALS
Kerrie

Hi Kylie and Happy New Year 😊

You have been fantastic in supporting and facilitating the process in gaining my Qualifications from Initial enquiry, enrolment through to providing required RPL Kit.

Nothing was too much trouble, you have a very positive, upbeat and engaging persona and your response times on any queries or requests I had where exceptional. I have utilised many Online Programs and Companies in the past and can confidently say that the Admin Services you provided are second to none.

You are a great ambassador especially in creating a positive first impression,  and as a result I would not hesitate to recommend First Choice to others.

I wish you all the best in the future,

Brandon

I am currently completing the Certificate IV Work Health and Safety course with First Choice College and I am about 80% through this course.

I am impressed by the very high quality of the course resource materials provided by First Choice. They are thorough and complete and very easy to navigate your way through the subject matter.

The assessors and staff are very friendly and are clearly highly industry experienced and very willing to help participants work through any questions or problems.

I can highly recommend this RTO to anyone wishing to obtain or upgrade their industry qualifications and genuinely learn valuable information while doing that.

Beth

I applied to First Choice College to gain further knowledge and skills in the workforce, and to strengthen my resume with a Diploma of Project Management. As a busy, single working mother with 2 children, the college provided me with the flexibility and support I needed in order to complete the course in alignment with my busy lifestyle. Trainers were incredibly supportive and the course content was structured in a way that was easy to understand and get through. Will definitely be looking to this college if I need to undertake any further courses in the future.

Brittany

Enrolling has never been so easy, you immediately gain the support needed if necessary and the team is always there to help with any queries you may have along the way. The team also provides great motivation and enthusiasm. I have already gained so much knowledge from the certificate III in business and administration and look forward to completing it.

Tracey

Can I just say how incredible you guys are to deal with.  Anytime I have had a question or issue about anything, no matter who I speak to is always so helpful and prompt in their responses.

Everyone should know that they are doing a great job.

Brody

Throughout the last 12 months Jacob Shaw has provided me with not only valuable assistance but some much appreciated encouragement. My completion of BSB41415 Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety can be greatly accredited to the ongoing support I have received from Jacob and the First Choice team. Jacob has always addressed my enquiries in a professional yet personal manner, whether it be by email or over the phone. I would not hesitate in recommending First Choice to anyone who is seeking to upskill themselves.

Karen

Thank you so much for making my day, my week, my month and my year!! I was getting a little concerned that I would run out of time to complete 3 units in a month if I was not successful with my RPL. I am one very relieved and thankful student. Thank you.

Rochelle

First Choice has given me more than I had expected from an online course. I have learnt so much and enjoyed completing every unit as it provides necessary and relevant information that I need in a Business Administration environment. My trainer Jacob has been a fantastic help throughout the course and easily available to answer any queries.

Prachi

I am really pleased and satisfied with the support & knowledge I have received from First Choice. I would like to say that the reading material was very detailed and the questions and projects were very informative and I have learnt a lot. The trainers have been amazing and supportive. I am pleased with the guidance I have received from the trainers.

I would highly recommend First Choice to anyone :)

Thanks heaps once again!!!!!!

Marshall

My experience with First Choice has been nothing short of amazing! The staff members and trainers provide some quality service and are very friendly. The student portal is so easy to navigate, I actually find this method of learning so much easier than the previous course I completed which was in a classroom. I would definitely recommend First Choice to anyone!

Ashlea

Having chosen to pursue RPL my Diploma in Management through First Choice was by far the best choice. The team were extremely professional, efficient and meticulous throughout the whole experience. I thoroughly recommend this RTO to anyone wishing to commence training or RPL previous study!
