Course Description

Highly practical, this course can be completed in a few short months and may be studied in parallel to beauty, wellness, fitness, design and other courses offered by Open Colleges.

With up to 53% of small business failures in Australia occurring within the first three years of start-up (source: ABS), the importance of sound management and planning cannot be overstated. Successful completion of the Statement of Attainment: Small Business Management Essentials provides students with four nationally recognised units of competency from the BSB42615 Certificate IV in New Small Business, which is part of the Business Services Training Package. These cover planning, finance, marketing, and monitoring and managing within the context of a small business operation. Students will also receive a Statement of Attainment.
