BSB40215 Certificate IV in Business



This qualification is suited to those working as administrators and project officers. In this role, individuals use well-developed skills and a broad knowledge base to apply solutions to a defined range of unpredictable problems and analyse information from a variety of sources. They may provide leadership and guidance to others with some limited responsibility for the output of others.


While there are no entry requirements defined in the training package, the RTO requires the following criteria to be met:

  • Applicants must be minimum 18 years of age at the time of commencement
  • Successful completion of Australian Equivalent Year 12 qualification or higher
  • Minimum IELTS score of 5.5 or PTE score of 42 or Certificate III in EAL or its equivalent.

In addition,

  • Applicants should have basic computer and MS Office skills (Word, Excel and PowerPoint).
Note: Alternatively, students may demonstrate their Language, Literacy and Numeracy requirement through an EAA LLN assessment test.


This course will be delivered over 26 weeks (approximately 0.5 years) of full-time study including holidays and breaks.

It is expected that the program would be of less duration for students who have completed components that can be identified by the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), and/or Credit Transfer.


Candidates who are 18 years and above, (including maturely aged clients) who wish to enter into the workforce as an administrator or project officer.


Individuals may enter this qualification with limited or no vocational experience and without a lower level qualification.


After achieving this qualification, individuals could progress to Diploma of Business or other diploma qualifications within the Business training package.


Possible job titles include

  • Office Administration Assistant


Training is based on face-to-face classroom delivery including interactive classroom teaching and tutorials.

Delivery Location

14/65 Mark Street, North Melbourne


Assessment will usually commence in the session following delivery.  As this is a competency based program, assessment continues throughout the program until the participant either achieves competency in the assessment tasks or a further training need is identified and addressed.  Students will be required to perform in a range of assessment tasks including and not limited to: Written Assignment, Demonstration, Role Play, Project, and Case study.

RPL/Credit Transfers

The recognition of prior learning (RPL) pathway is appropriate for candidates who have previously attained skills and knowledge from outside the formal education and training system and which includes work and life experience.

Credit transfer is a process that provides students with agreed and consistent credit outcomes for components of a qualification based on identified equivalence in content and learning outcomes between matched qualifications.

Students may apply for RPL or Credit transfers for any unit in which they can successfully demonstrate competency.
