This program provides learners with skills and knowledge required to perform event management processes and to coordinate event operations. This qualification provides a pathway to work in event management companies, event venues, or organisations that organise their own events. Work could be undertaken in an office environment where the planning of events takes place on-site at venues, where events are staged, or a combination of both.

They operate independently and make operational event management decisions.
