The Centre for Volunteering, through the National School of Volunteer Management (SVM) [RTO code 90031], is pleased to offer the Certificate IV in Coordination of Volunteer Programs (CHC44015).
This course has been developed with the not-for-profit or community service professional in mind. As the SVM is the training arm of the peak body for Volunteering in NSW, the course is responsive to the latest trends and requirements for volunteer coordinators in Australia.
