Qualification Overview

Qualification Name:

Certificate IV in Business

Qualification Code and Units of Competency:

BSB40120

Duration:

Within four weeks of receiving sufficient and complying evidence of competency in all applied for units of competency.

The Certificate IV in Business is aimed at project officers and administrators. In this role, you will have well-developed skills and possess a broad knowledge base, which will enable you to analyse information from various sources, and apply solutions across a range of unpredictable challenges. You may be in a position of limited responsibility for others, and in that role, provide guidance and leadership to your team.

To qualify for this certificate, you must provide evidence demonstrating that your skills and knowledge align with the courser’s learning outcomes. This evidence can take various forms. Demonstrating your current proficiency at a comparable level can be done through a CV (your student support representative can assist with this), an employment letter, or an employment contract.

Additionally, documents from prior work or educational experiences, such as references from licensed tradespeople you’ve collaborated with, apprenticeship records, academic transcripts, or assessments from relevant past qualifications, all contribute to the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process. You can also submit proof of overseas qualifications or visual evidence of your work, especially for practical roles.
