Unique Student Identifier (USI) Mandatory since 1 January 2015

Since the 1st of January 2015, all students undertaking Nationally Recognised training in Australia need to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). Once you have your USI, you can use it throughout your life, to keep a centralised online record of all your Nationally Recognised training. Whether you're studying at TAFE, a private training organisation, completing a certificate or diploma course, apprenticeship or skill set - you'll need a USI.

Overview

Training in project management delivers direct returns to both the participant and their organisation. By contributing to delivering projects on time and on budget, individuals enjoy a more rewarding and fulfilling role and their organisation achieves business outcomes. This qualification provides recognition to project team members who are able to demonstrate expertise and understanding of the project management process.

Who Will Benefit

This qualification is designed specifically for people who are members of one or more project teams, but don’t have overall responsibility for the management of the project. Participants may come from any industry or sector.

Key Topics

  • Understanding and working with the project management process
  • Contributing to the planning and execution of projects
  • Monitoring and controlling costs, information and people
  • Being an effective member of a project team
  • Contributing to an effective project team meeting
  • Applying knowledge and skills in project management in the workplace.

Prerequisites

This qualification is suitable for autonomous individuals who identify and apply project management skills and knowledge in a wide variety of contexts. Job titles for these roles may include contracts officers, project administrators, quality officers and small business operators.

What Is Required to Gain the Qualification

Attendance on the training programs and successful completion of the assessment requirements. Each assessment consists of 4 components;

  1. Knowledge Evidence. A set of questions designed to show you underpinning knowledge
  2. Workplace Evidence. Evidence from your workplace that shows that you consistently perform certain tasks in the workplace
  3. Personal Statement. This allows you to map your own experience to the requirements of the unit. It combines your knowledge and workplace evidence in one statement
  4. Third Party Report. You complete this report in relation to tasks you complete in the workplace. Your manager must sign it off as true and accurate.

All participants are required to complete a self-assessment questionnaire in relation to each unit of competence. This allows the prospective participant to determine which pathway best suits their learning journey towards the qualification. The outcomes of the survey will also help the RTO to identify the participant’s ability to successfully undertake the qualification and the suitability of the pathway chosen.

Participants have up to 2 years to complete the training and assessment requirements of the qualification. This time frame will vary for each individual depending on their existing level of skills and knowledge and their ability to attend the training program/s.

AIM WA recommends regular attendance on the free monthly Qualification Support Workshops while completing the assessment requirements.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is available for all or part of this qualification.  Please refer to the Enrolment Kit for details or details on the website on the RPL process
