Course Description

This nationally recognised qualification is suitable for people who coordinate and maintain the work health and safety (WHS) program in an organisation. This course aims to provide you with the skills to manage WHS risk, manage WHS quality systems, investigate and report on WHS incidents and manage rehabilitation or return to work programs.

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.

This program is also offered as a Double Diploma with the Diploma of Quality Auditing, the WHS stream or the Business stream. To learn more about this Double Diploma, please call our Learning Advisor team on 1800 633 560.
