Course Description

The Advanced Diploma of WHS is designed to suit those in a specific Occupational / Work Health and Safety (OHS / WHS) role at a senior level. The course reflects the role of individuals who analyse, design and execute judgements using wide-ranging technical, creative, conceptual or managerial competencies. Their knowledge base may be specialised or broad, and they are often accountable for group outcomes.

Unlike other training providers, at Swinburne Professional we believe in the holistic development of each person and therefore our qualifications have been structured to not only provide the technical skills required but also to develop the leadership and management capabilities of each person relevant to the level of study that they are engaged in.
