This qualification is suitable for those establishing a small business who use well developed skills and a broad knowledge base to solve a range of unpredictable problems, and analyse and evaluate information from a variety of sources. They may provide leadership and guidance to others, and have responsibility for the output of others.
What will they learn?
Participants will learn how to establish legal and risk management requirements of a small business, manage small business finances, market a small business, undertake small business planning, communicate effectively, deliver and monitor a service to customers, develop work priorities, present information to others, create innovative teams, and understand WHS compliance with regards to contractors.
How will participants be assessed and what will they receive?
Competency will be assessed via a mixture of theory and practical assessments. The time required to undertake the assessment tasks will depend on your experience, literacy (both language and digital), skills and workplace resources, so cannot be estimated.
Participants who successfully complete all assessments will receive their Certificate IV in New Small Business.
Recognition of Prior Learning
Your history of study, skills and experience can be taken into account but it must support the criteria included in the units of competency within the qualification. Documentary evidence, and completion of an RPL kit will be required.
If you wish to RPL contact us, and we will provide you with our RPL kit. Please note the price to RPL the qualification is the same price as studying the qualification, due to the extensive time required to assess evidence against selected criteria.
If you are enrolling in the RPL process, please send an initial deposit of $850 to commence the process. The balance will be payable at the conclusion of the RPL assessment, but before issuance of any certificates or statements of attainment.
Gap training is available for any units not met by RPL evidence. This is provided via course notes and assessment, and is self-paced. There is no extra charge for gap training.
