  • Management/staff with experience in working closely with a board of governance of a not-for-profit/community organisation
  • People who have completed BSB41910 Certificate IV in Business (Governance) or other relevant qualifications.

If you do not fit into one of the categories above, please give us a call to discuss your options.

Pre-course requirements

Prior to commencement of face-to-face, all enrollees are required to complete some pre-reading . Enrollees who do not complete this pre-course component may be restricted from attending.

The pre-reading consists of approximately 50 pages. It's estimated that the pre-reading and review will take approximately three hours to complete.

This aspect of the course is designed to ensure that participants are prepared for the face-to-face learning blocks and have given proper thought to the commitment of assessment.


The enrolment fee for the Diploma of Governance is $4495 (inc GST), comprising enrolment, assessment and administration. This fee is payable in full 30 days from the time of enrolment and no later than 10 working days prior to the first day of course (whichever falls due first).

Once payment has been confirmed, participants will receive their pre-reading materials.

Participants' iPad's will also contain course materials, references and a course toolkit (these can also be obtained in hard copy format if preferred).

As there is an expectation that all participants are committed to completing the assessment and receiving the Diploma, there is no refund (partial or otherwise) if assessments are not completed.

The Diploma of Governance BSB52318 is a full fee paying course. At this stage no fee assistance is accessible for this course.

Students may choose to enrol without receiving an iPad (a recommended learning tool for this course) and their fees will be reduced by $300. Students who elect to bring their own substitute device will be provided with links to download reference materials. Our sustainability policy prevents us from printing copies of these materials.
