Certificate III in Events
Events course details
Course description and aims
This qualification 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.
Possible job titles include:
event or exhibition administrative assistant
event or exhibition assistant
event or exhibition operations assistant
in-house meetings assistant
junior event or exhibition coordinator
No occupational licensing, certification or specific legislative requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.
