The Business Administration Course offered by the Institute of Business Operations is the BSBSS00120 Administrative Assistant Skill Set, which is Nationally Accredited Training. Completing this business administration course does not lead to a qualification, but students who complete the skill set will have finished four out of the thirteen units required to obtain the Certificate III in Business (Business Administration).
Students completing this business administration course will be trained and assessed on four subjects which are key competency areas for staff employed in an office administration role.
The Business Administration Course fees are $499. This includes online training and assessment.
Once your enrolment has been accepted into the Business Administration Course, you will be provided with reading materials and video lectures for your first subject. Before moving onto the next subject, you will need to be assessed on your competency. Assessment takes place during Training and Assessment periods, but will not take place during STUVAC. Please refer to the current training calendar for current training and assessment periods.
Once your enrolment has been processed and the fees have been paid, you will gain access to a textbook for each of your subjects in electronic format. The textbook will form the basis of your business administration coursework, and will be supplemented by online recordings and tutorials.
Whilst there are no training package requirements for entry into the Business Administration Course (BSBSS00120 – Administrative Assistant Skill Set), the Institute of Business Operations course has been designed for those who are currently employed in a relevant role.
All prospective students of the Institute of Business Operations must be able to demonstrate the minimum Language, Literacy and Numeracy levels required to complete the course. This may be demonstrated in two ways:
- Passing a Language, Literacy, and Numeracy assessment; or
- Demonstration of Language, Literacy or Numeracy levels by other means (such as the attainment of another qualification / degree deemed equivalent competence)
Students who do not meet the Language, Literacy and Numeracy requirements will not be enrolled in the Certificate III in Business but may be recommended for alternative training.
We want to be sure that you enrol in a course that you can comfortably complete. During the enrolment process we will help you determine the right course for you, and if you need additional advice or guidance we will endeavour to assist where we can.
The Business Administration Course (BSBSS00120 – Administrative Assistant Skill Set) is an online course which is self paced. You will have a lot of flexibility to study and complete units at your own pace, and your completion coach will help you organise your study.
The study commitment will vary from person to person, and will be affected by past and current work experience. As a guide, you should allow between 15 and 24 hours per week. You can increase your time commitment to complete the course sooner, but you should be realistic about timeframes.
During the enrolment process, you will be given an individual training plan which will outline your recommended study timetable and your online attendance requirements. It is important to recognise that although this course is wholly online, there may be elements within subjects that will require you to work with your student peers as part of the assessment. This will be facilitated and organised by your Trainer & Assessor.
In additional to any subject specific attendance requirements, we have weekly “Q&A” sessions and Subject Masterclasses to complement student learning and help students connect with their peers and Trainer & Assessor.
