SIT30516 Certificate III in Events

National ID: SIT30516 | State ID: AZV9

Do you want an eventful career?

The Certificate III in Events, reflects the role of individuals who use a range of well-developed events administration or operational skills and knowledge to complete event-related work activities. Using discretion and judgement, they work with some independence under the guidance of more senior event personnel, using plans, policies and procedures to guide work activities.

Events are diverse in nature and this qualification provides a pathway to work for event or exhibition organisations operating in a range of industries including the tourism and travel, hospitality, sport, cultural and community sectors.

The diversity of employers includes event or exhibition 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.

On completion of your Certificate III in Events, further study pathways exist directly into the Diploma of Event Management; with other pathways leading into Travel, Tourism and Hospitality.
