Description

This qualification provides the skills and knowledge for an individual to be competent in a broad range of event management skills, including significant communication, planning and organisational skills. This is underpinned by a detailed knowledge of the event management process.

Event organisation and management takes place across the full spectrum of business and community activity. The qualification has particular relevance in the community, cultural, hospitality, sporting and tourism sectors. Work would be undertaken in both an office environment where event planning and organisation takes place, and at an event site.

The qualification reflects the role of individuals who possess a sound theoretical knowledge base and use a range of specialised, technical or managerial competencies to plan, carry out and evaluate the work of self or team.

The qualification is not suitable for an Australian apprenticeship pathway.

Job roles 

Individuals with this qualification are able to work in a range of organisations where event management takes place, and such organisations are diverse in nature. Examples include professional conference organisers, exhibition and event management companies, sporting associations, community organisations, hospitality and cultural venues.

Possible job titles include:

  • event coordinator
  • venue coordinator
  • conference coordinator
  • exhibitions coordinator.

Prerequisite requirements 

There are two alternative pathways for entry into the Diploma of Events. The candidate must either:

1. Have achieved a Certificate III qualification in an events-related area. Certificate III qualifications which are particularly relevant include those in the areas of:

  • business
  • entertainment
  • hospitality
  • museums and libraries
  • music
  • sport and recreation
  • tourism.

OR

2. Have paid or voluntary employment experience at an operational, coordination or management level in an events-related field. A current or previous job role that involves or has involved the application of skills and knowledge relevant to the staging and management of functions and events would be appropriate. As a minimum, employment experience must reflect the breadth, depth and complexity of a qualification at Certificate III level, as defined in the AQF guidelines.
