Hi,I was introduced to them through training.com.au. When I spoke to the representative and explained my qualifications, skill sets & career goals- the representative was honest enough to admit that they dont have course to suit my needs. They also directed me towards the right course and where i could seek subsidy. Thats what a good ethical person/ organization would do!!!! Thank you for the guidance!!!

I completed my Diploma of Project Management through CAL in 2018 (~12 months of part-time study), and successfully was employed in various Defence Industry IPTs upon achievement. In April 2021, I took an Asst. Project Manager position at a well-known Defence organisation and within 3 months I had successfully worked away the ‘Assistant’ title, accepted a promotion to Technical Project Manager and am now successfully managing over 10 Defence contracts/projects with values ranging from $35,000 to $1.4m.The Diploma itself was of course challenging, as all qualifications at this level should be. Individuals should perhaps be aware of their own shortcomings and/or ineptitudes prior to hastily venting on review websites. The CAL staff were prompt, polite, motivating, and supportive throughout my 12 months of study, and I never felt the tasks ahead of me were insurmountable. I found the lectures, activities, assignments, and general content engaging and relevant, and I know that completing the Diploma was crucial to the upwards career trajectory I briefly mentioned in the opening paragraph.My CAL experience didn’t end with the completion of my Diploma however. The aftercare service I received was exceptional, and I have been in regular contact with various members of the team post-2018 that have warmly checked in and congratulated me on achieving my study and career outcomes. I participated in the ‘Career Close-up Profile’ activity in 2019, a personalised question and answer session that CAL polished up and displayed proudly on their social media accounts.In 2020, I was doubly humbled to be considered a CAL ‘success story’ due to a combination of my ‘fantastic learning efforts not going unnoticed’ (kind words, thanks Aria), and a new role I recently started that was directly aligned with both my study and career goals. I gratefully participated in this activity also, resulting in CAL funding and organising a professional videographer to come to my apartment in Brisbane and film a short interview for the ‘Real Outcomes’ video series.More recently, I received very supportive correspondence from the CAL team last week, prompting and facilitating the seamless transition/upgrade to the latest revision of the Diploma of Project Management, something I would not have been aware of had I not been informed!In summary, my studies with CAL have been intrinsically linked with the successes I have achieved to date in my career thus far. The pricing is more than competitive, and I probably have had correspondence with up to ten different members of the team throughout the years, and I couldn’t say a bad word about any of them! The learning experiences, customer service and aftercare was above and beyond what I could have ever anticipated from online learning, and I would highly recommend this RTO to anyone interested in professional development.A few names come to mind over the last few years, so a special thank you to Michael Meere (my assessor), Alysia, Aria, and most recently, Sarah. Way more than just an RTO!Myles Hembrow – MAIPM CPPM

Finally finished by double diploma in Business and Leadership Management, being an essential worker, working full time and being pregnant for last 6 months of it was challenging!! I want to thank the assessor Marissa Litonjua for being so great in helping me this last year and to get the course finished before my baby comes! I also want to thank Kerre Burley for always being so lovely and helpful in my assessment stimulations.My only criticism would be of the Payroll unit, It was the only unit I really struggled with and I know a lot of other students did too. The assessments were not explained clearly and I ended up having to resubmit about 4 times (This did not happen with any other unit). The teacher Megan was the only one grading the assessments and I'm sorry to say but she really was no help at all. The feedback was not helpful and I ended up getting assistance from another student to help me through the unit.Overall the course was very good, I did not upgrade to the new BSB package as I was so close to finishing the older version of the course so I'm not sure what the upgrade will be like.Thanks again CAL team!

PERFECT LIFE COACH AND STUDIES MENTORS!!I was given all the information I needed to know and spent nearly 2 hours today on one phone call in regards to one enquiry i was having about a course. I had given -Jason, ‘College for Adult Learning Representative’ , a big headache on the phone call with never-ending questions about my course I’m about to start and he helped me through with each and every one. I have studied on different academic levels in different countries and I’ve honestly never met someone so passionate and eager to mentor me through my journey as if I was his younger brother. If you’re reading this Jason, thank you so much and I’m sure karma will come back to you right like you’ve helped me today on the phone call! 😊

I was tossing up whether or not to move forward with registering for the double diploma in building and construction management and project management - Jason had tried to call me and I missed it so he flicked me an email and when I replied (at 5.20pm on a Friday night mind you) he called me strait back and said I was a really good candidate for the course, so I registered and he approved it for me strait away so I could enrol and get started over the weekend.He was so good to deal with, easy to talk to and very reassuring. So thank you Jason, for helping me take the next step toward my career goals.

The course material included was really useful. I was also fortunate enough to have received the support of a great coach and assessor like Marissa. She was friendly and always happy to assist and provide me with meaningful feedback when I needed help or clarification. Overall, I was satisfied with my experience at CAL.

I spent a long time tossing up whether or not to go back to studying...it’s been over 20 years since I last hit the books! While already juggling family, work and other commitments, I was no doubt going to put myself under even more pressure! I decided to take the plunge and, sure enough, it was every bit the anxiety inducing ride I expected it to be!That said, I am so glad I went ahead and did this. Not only will these qualifications assist me in the future but The College For Adult Learning also has coaches like Kerri Waddell to help you through it making it almost worth the premature ageing. If it weren’t for her ability to keep me focused (and sane) then I’m confident I’d have packed it in! She has fantastic knowledge of the course content, an ability to give clear and concise feedback and a calming influence during the coaching calls.If you’re unsure whether or not to go back to studying, I won’t lie, it’s TOUGH! But if you land a coach like Kerri who can keep you on the right track then the only person who can stop you from getting through it......is YOU!

Having been in the workforce for a few decades I am very aware that my resume needed some attention to make it more appealing to prospective employers (now I know it is not a CV!). My experience with Jenni the career counsellor was exceptional. She requested that I send through my current resume for review prior to our meeting. The feedback from Jenni was so helpful. She was encouraging too, and made me feel more sure about how to 'sell myself' to the target employers. I am very impressed with CAL's careers hub - many resources that I will use. Thank you very much for your help.

I have recently completed a Double Diploma in Project Management and Leadership & Management through CAL. The coaches at CAL are friendly and very helpful. I was able to complete the course well under the allocated time due to the user friendly platform that CAL have constructed and also aided by the fast response times from CAL staff.My assignments were returned quickly with a detailed response indicating what I did well and what I should pay more attention to which helped shape my thought patterns through the course until I had the bigger picture on what was required from me at the final assessment.CAL staff have always been easy to contact and very considerate to the fact that most learners are working full time while undertaking their studies.I have learnt a great deal through this course and would like to thank everyone at the College for Adult Learning for their assistance through my journey.

I would most definitely recommend CAL to all looking to complete a nationally recognised diploma at a self paced level. I completed my course in 2.5 years while working full time, the college was so supportive during my 2.5 years of studies with them! I am now qualified in the field I have been passionate about which mean I can now confidently apply for roles with HRM thanks to my new Double Diploma I have completed with CAL! I highly recommend CAL to prospect students!

Celebrating that I recently completed my Double Diploma in Business Administration & Leadership and Management. I feel that I learnt valuable skills and knowledge to assist my career. I commenced this course during a period of not having a workplace due to taking leave to care for my aged mother and wanting to improve my work skills. I used all of the Case Study resources which were relevant to units and this provided good direction and material to complete assessments. With my previous work knowledge and experience I was able to fast track quite a few of the units and then other units I found it valuable to work through the tutorials and activities to gain further knowledge.My coaches and assessors over the course were Meagan and Marissa and they were both wonderful facilitators, being friendly, encouraging and supportive. It was always a pleasure to talk with them and also made me feel comfortable completing role play assessments. If I needed any clarification of requirements it was easy just to book a call and then gain insight to get the tasks completed. Thank you Meagan and Marissa, you gave me wonderful inspiration to complete the course.My whole experience across the course was that it was very supportive from all of the team at CAL from the beginning to the finish, including the student administration team and the online learning platform is easy to use.It feels rewarding to have completed the course and it’s given me greater confidence now that I’m back in the workforce.Jenni Pickert

I completed a double diploma with CAL. I found the material easy to access with their online dashboard. I felt that there was material available for various learning styles - which sometimes is missed with on-line learning. Learning material was perfect for me as it allowed me to push and challenge myself and get the most out of the course that I required. The whole team were supportive in my learnings and offered help with work / study / life balance when I was time poor due to work commitments, which I feel is a nice personal touch, they understand the human side and you are not just a number. I 100% recommended CAL as a study platform.

I have just completed my double diploma in HR Management and Business Admin. This has been one of the best online platforms that I have used for my learning experiences. The content Is excellent and very thorough, there are various methods you can use, depending on your learning style. There is a lot of work, but is totally rewarding as you work through it. My biggest take home is if you have any issues or get stuck is to always communicate with the lecturers or even the office staff, the whole team is super supportive. I struggled a couple of times with work time pressures where it got too much, the CAL team where very supportive and assisted me through it. Kerry and Marissa where both great facilitators when working though my major assignments, and thanks them both for making it an easy process. At the end of the day CAL want you to pass and will work with you through the process. Thanks to the CAL team!!! 😎😎

I have just completed my double diploma in project management and leadership management. It has a lot of information and I learned so much. The price you pay in money and mentality was worth having these two diplomas now and I can’t thank CAL enough. I have always had good experiences with the coach’s, timing and content. I would recommend studying with CAL to anyone. Just chip away at it and keep motivated.

In the current climate, we are all facing I have found that my coach and also the student support and administration has been VERY helpful, reassuring and timely in their communication and help. I enjoy the course and my experience from the start has been great. The effort is on me to contact and reach out and once I did this the team was on my questions immediately.

I found my whole experience with CAL to be a positive one. It's been many years since I have been in a "school" environment, so it took some discipline to get through this course. I set myself a 2 hour minimum study period each day which took a fair bit of effort and focus, as I work full-time plus have a family to look after. It was hard initially, but after a couple of weeks, I found my rhythm and it was smooth sailing after that. I also didn't put any pressure on myself-if I had a bad day at work-I didn't touch any study as I found no joy when I hit the books in that frame of mind, and that made it hard work. So, I found giving study a miss for one or two days actually beneficial, and when I did go back, I was more involved and interested in my course than before. I have nothing but praise for the support I received from the whole team at CAL - from the admin staff to the tutors. They responded quickly and the coaching calls helped me to get to the next questions/units quickly. A big thank you to each of you for the part you played in helping me achieve a long-held goal. I highly recommend CAL to anybody who is looking to take on some study. The content is laid out well and easily followed. The exercises for each topic and the assessments went a long way in ensuring that the information absorbed was drilled home.

CAL provided a great opportunity to learn at your own pace. I would highly recommend their Diploma of Project Management if you are new to the field and looking for an opportunity to learn as you do. The Diploma greatly supported the project I was working on at the time, running me through all the steps as I implemented them.

I have just completed a double diploma with CAL. I found all of the staff there very supportive indeed and did not experience any rudeness whatsoever. Unforeseen circumstances meant that i had to request an extension , CAL were very professional in their response and understanding. Studying online is not for everyone and can be difficult if you are returning back to study after a long period. However CAL are there to support you it just takes a little bit of time to get a response from your coach, but once you are speaking with them they clarify and help you with your course work. I would recommend sourcing a study group either students from CAL or somewhere else where you can bounce ideas off each other regarding the course. This will help you as you work through the self directed learning and complete your tasks and activities in the course.Thanks to all the team at CAL who helped me through my course and got me to the end.

I really enjoy my studies at the college of Adult Learning, ( I am studying the double Diploma in Human Resources and Leadership Management)the trainers are helpful and very easy to talk to. It’s taken me a bit longer to complete than expected but I can go at my own pace and I now book regular coaching calls to keep me active in my studies. Over all, I’m really happy I choose this course and this college.

I have just submitted Unit 10 and I must say it has been a tough course but feel I have put in what I wanted to get out of the course. I wanted to push myself so only asked for coaching advice a couple of times. Hard to juggle with kids and work but if you plan your time well it will work. Recommended course content and coaching were quick to respond. Thanks CAL

I’m currently doing a double diploma of construction management and Project Management. All the coaches and staff at CAL have been very helpful and the studies have been great as they provide all the text books and study resources that I need to understand all processes and regulations involved in the field I am pursuing.

I recently completed the Double Diploma in Project Management | Leadership and Management. From my initial enquiry and dealings with Tristan who was super helpful, informative and supportive, through to starting the course with the help of Student engagement coach David who helped me every step of the way and checked in to see how I was getting on, The College for Adult Learning was a fantastic learning experience which exceeded my expectations. With each Unit completed the next would be unlocked straight away and marked within the times stated (generally in half the time). The feedback from the coaches was the best of all always super encouraging and supportive but also included much needed advice in areas that may require extra study or focus. Anything I was unsure of I simply booked a time that suited me for a coach to call me to discuss anything I was unsure about. I highly rate and recommend CAL and look forward to studying with them again in the near future! Thanks so much guys !!

Career Opportunities

Invest in your career with a qualification

Investing in yourself is the greatest investment you can make. Project Management is an in demand career, and the earning potential is growing fast. The key to building a career is a recognised qualification like the Certificate IV in Project Management Practice.

  • Fact: qualified project managers earn more and get promoted faster, than unqualified project managers.
  • The 2010 Hays Salary guide reports senior project managers earning $120-165K
  • Building construction project managers in the private sector command up to $200K.
  • Mycareer.com states the average 2012 salary for project managers is $140,000.

With the need for professional project managers increasing, how do you keep your knowledge current and stand out from the crowd?

You may be at risk of being passed over for career progression, salary increases or promotion opportunities because you do not have a recognised qualification in project management.

In Project Management, hiring decision makers consider the real quality of your qualifications.

Your qualification needs to stack up to the level of your experience as represented by your CV. In this competitive market some may be tempted by a quick fix, tick the box Project Management course. Beware – these less reputable courses do not stand up under scrutiny. You need an assessment based, quality accreditation that is clever enough to validate your experience using evidence from your workplace, while giving you the skills to secure the job and future income you deserve.

In-Demand Skills for a Senior Project Administrator

Essential skills for the modern Project Manager

A qualification in project management shows potential employers that you are serious about your career and the discipline of project management and also that you are both qualified and competent to do the job and have the correct set of skills required.

Although you will use the same fundamental skills and processes across projects, don’t be afraid to pursue one specific area. A great project manager should be able to manage projects across any industry but many will choose to specialise in one area of project management to really hone in on their skills. Take the time to figure out which types of projects you would like to manage and focus your learning to know as much about that industry as you can.

A huge portion of a project manager’s work is communicating with team members and project stakeholders. For instance, if something was to unexpectedly happen during project execution and the project manager realised there may be a delay in the completion date. A great project manager will need to communicate this information as soon as possible to all those involved. Different stakeholders need to be approached differently and may need phone calls or personal visits to reassure them.
