Unit Descriptor

Unit descriptor 

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to process and monitor registration for any type of event.

No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certificate requirements apply to this unit at the time of endorsement.

Application of the Unit

Application of the unit 

Events are diverse in nature and are organised and administered in many different industry contexts. The underpinning principles of event management are consistent across these contexts and this unit is designed to apply to a broad range of events. It has particular relevance in the creative, hospitality, sport and tourism sectors within venues, event management organisations and professional conference organisers.

Registration processing and monitoring requires underpinning clerical and administrative skills combined with knowledge of specific event administration procedures. This function is undertaken by individuals working according to broader event management procedures and under guidance from others.

An individual achieving this unit would be expected to have a broad understanding of general event administration processes and principles to enable the transfer of skills across a range of different event types.
