Learn To Manage Events

Some people make a career out of managing events; from wedding and party planners to concert promoters and those who run shows and exhibitions. This short course may be a first step toward working in something like this; or it may just be a way of adding to your skills to enhance a job you already have. For others, this can be a way of learning how to organise that special celebration yourself, rather than needing to go to the expense of employing a professional to help you.

Using a self paced, interactive study guide; you can take as much or little time as you wish to complete this course.

As you progress through each lesson; you will be provided with a range of ways you can expand your learning. By choosing what tasks you do and don't undertake; you can expand in areas that interest you most, and skip areas of less interest.

You won't miss anything important that you need to know about managing events though; so long as you read the notes that are presented alongside these "learn more" suggestions.

At the end of each lesson, you will be given a short interactive test to undertake, which will provide an indication of how your learning is progressing.  Upon completing the very last lesson, you will be offered a more thorough automated test or examination. This final assessment can be undertaken at any time of day or night; and any day of the week; and if you achieve an overall pass; you will be able to obtain a "certificate of completion".
