6 Months Full Time; Part time courses also available

The program will prepare graduates with a range of business skills necessary to be successful in a number of business environments. These include customer service, marketing activities, business communication and occupational health and safety.

The Certificate IV in Business is designed for those who have little to no business experience and seek a career in business or who intend to study at the diploma or degree level in the future.

A key component of ASBM is that all students will undertake 12 industry work placement shifts in a business enterprise as part of this course.

Pathways to a Higher Degree

Successful completion of the four subjects in the Certificate IV in Business will result in a four unit credit for the Bachelor of Business at the Australian School of Management, if completed in conjunction with the Diploma of Business.
