The Certificate IV in Project Management qualification reflects the role of individuals who identify and apply project management skills and knowledge in a wide variety of contexts. They may be members of a project team but with no direct responsibility for the overall project outcomes. They support project operations in one or more roles and under direction may also use project tools and methodologies selectively to support organisational or business activities. They take responsibility for their own outputs in terms of organisational and project quality requirements, and may have limited responsibility for the output of others.


By the end of this qualification participants will be able to:

  • assist the project team to plan communications, facilitate information flow and review communications

  • participate in meetings, questioning and discussions, and making presentations

  • assisting with obtaining information from relevant sources throughout the project life cycle

  • resolving and preventing conflict in the team

  • translating ideas into action and measurable outcomes

  • planning work and project tasks for self and others
