CEO, Mick Bourke said the Diploma of Management enables managers from across the organisation to develop a shared view of effective management and leadership.

“It promotes the concept of one CFA, and provides an opportunity for administrative and operational personnel and managers to meet on a regular basis to discuss and reflect on issues affecting both the organisation and their work teams,” he said.

“Learning is a life-long thing and this Diploma will equip the graduates to deal with the challenges that managers face every day. The tools that this Diploma will equip the CFA graduates with are skills which are transferable to any enterprise, anywhere in the world”.

OT&V Executive Director, Lex de Man said the Diploma of Management involved each student completing eight units over many months. Classes were scheduled across a number of months with assignments completed in their own time and the graduates had achieved a significant step in their personal development.

“I hope the learning’s that the graduates have received in this management course will kindle a desire to get the ‘training bug’ and aim for the next step,” he said.

Participants in the program are selected on the basis of a number of criteria including: Job relevance; management recommendation; support for Individual development needs; career potential; and the need for a mix of participants across CFA.
