The BSB61215 Advanced Diploma of Program Management course is designed to enable students to develop and apply specialised knowledge and skills, together with experience in program management across a range of enterprise and industry contexts.

A program is defined as a set of interrelated projects, each of which has a project manager. ‘Multiple projects’, or ‘a program of projects’, refers to a number of related projects managed by the same person as a program to achieve organisational objective/s.

It applies to individuals who are program managers, managing or directing a suite of projects (a program) to achieve organisational objectives. Individuals at this level use initiative and judgement to direct, plan, and lead a range of program functions, with accountability for personal and team outcomes within broad parameters. They use cognitive and communication skills to identify, analyse and synthesise information from a variety of sources and transfer their knowledge to others, and creative or conceptual skills to express ideas and perspectives or respond to complex problems.


In order to gain entry into this course, the potential student must:

  • Have completed a Diploma of Project Management qualification
  • Have completed two years equivalent full-time relevant workplace experience at a significant level within a project or program environment within an enterprise.

After achieving the BSB61215 Advanced Diploma of Program Management, students may continue to study other Advanced Diplomas or undergraduate programs.
