Refresh Your Professional Skills and Earn Qualifications

The newly revised Certificate IV in Coordination of Volunteer Programs (CHC44015) has been developed with you, the not-for- profit or community service professional, in mind.

This Course will enhance your thinking on how to operate more effectively in an environment of significant challenge and limited resources. You will learn modern ways to manage and enrich volunteer worker experiences in the sector and to channel that energy into productive pseudo-commercial outcomes for your enterprise.
Keeping the focus on outcomes, you will use new technologies and innovative processes to achieve results. We have a rolling intake and students may commence at anytime.

While the Course is mainly self-paced learning using electronic media resources, you will most likely need about 10-11 months to fully complete the coursework and assessment activities.

The Course is structured to fit in with your working environment, so many assessment activities will be drawn from on- the- job activities and experiences.

With an emphasis on collaboration, there will be opportunities to grow your professional networks and learn from your peers as well as share your ideas and innovations with others.

On completion, you will emerge with a nationally recognised registered certificate.

There are monthly face to face workshops in the The Rocks.

The full Certificate costs $3300 (inclusive of GST) which can be paid in instalments over the 3 terms (Members of The Centre for Volunteering can receive a 20% discount).

Partial qualifications are also available (enquire for costs).
