Project Description

BSB41015 Certificate IV in Human Resources

CRICOS Course Code:0100061

The target group for the BSB41015 Certificate IV in Human Resources are those who may be:

  • Seeking to pursue a career in human resources management.
  • Seeking to progress in their career in the human resources, industrial law, employee relation, etc.
  • Seeking a pathway into Diploma or higher qualifications in Human Resources.

This qualification is suitable for individuals working or seeking to work in a range of human resources management positions. Job roles could include human resources assistants, human resources coordinators, human resources administrators and payroll officers.

Workplace responsibilities would be determined at a workplace level. Some smaller business may require employees to work across all aspects of human resources. In larger companies, individuals may just have responsibility for a singular aspect of human resources such as remuneration.

A mixed delivery mode is implemented including face to face training and training in simulated work environment. Training will take place at the Melbourne Education Institute facility at Level 1, 310 King Street, Melbourne VIC Australia 3000.

The following techniques are employed during face to face delivery depending on the subject matter:  trainer presentations and demonstrations, power point presentations, individual tasks, case studies, research, role plays, practical demonstrations and group work.

During independent study time, students will be provided with text books to develop knowledge and understanding. This includes a mixture of theoretical information and tasks.  Text books include sufficient information for the students to learn the topic, undertake practice activities and complete tasks.  Students will also be directed to undertake research tasks and access reference materials. Students will be supported by their trainers outside of class contact time.

Students may be provided opportunities for formative assessment during delivery. Trainers provide feedback to students on areas for improvements to facilitate the development of appropriate knowledge and skills and prepare them for summative assessment.
