The Certificate in Event Planning is the perfect online course for those of you who love the idea of a career planning events within the corporate, charity, sporting and entertainment sectors. Maybe your friends describe you as ‘highly organised’ and you thrive in an exciting and fast paced working environment.
This course will teach you how to think like an Event Planner and use your newly gained expertise to create great event concepts within a client budget. The processes involved in the planning of an event will become second nature, and we will equip you with the knowledge and skills to confidently manage event suppliers and master event logistics.
There are 15 modules in this course, divided into 4 Sections with 4 Assignments. The average completion time is 12 weeks, but you will have up to 1 year to finish your course with the support of your own dedicated Tutor.
Upon graduation you will receive an industry, nationally & internationally recognised certification as an Event Planner.
I found the online study-from-home system of the Academy very useful and easy to use. I was able to complete units, unit projects and assignments on my own time and with no time limit (except for the timeframe of completing the overall course). This meant that I was able to study as and when it suited me – I could set a certain time each day to get some study done, whilst also completing other life tasks.
For anyone who is considering starting studying with the New Zealand Academy of Wedding & Event Planning, I would highly recommend it. It is and easy and fun way to learn and doesn’t get in the way of other aspects of your life.
This course is ideal for anyone with a love of Events and of course, planning and organisation. It is also the ideal course for anyone who has to plan events as part of another role; for example in Marketing or Public Relations or as a Personal/Executive Assistant. If you work or Volunteer with a Charity or Not-for-profit Organisation which hosts events, you will also find this course very valuable.It is also an ideal ‘starter’ course if you would like to test the waters and find out more about working in events as it can be used as a stepping stone towards higher certifications.
This course does not include our business units and its focus is solely about teaching you how to plan events and work with a client and suppliers. This makes it an ideal course for job-seekers. Employment opportunities can be found at Wedding and Event Venues, with established Wedding and Event Planners and within businesses and organisations that plan events.
The following courses also contain the Event Planning units from this course, which means that you can credit your study from this course, to those higher certifications later.Wedding & Event Planning Certification Course Advanced Special Event Planning & Design Course
