The Benefits Of A Certificate IV In Business (Administration)

If you’re looking to advance your career in business administration or kick-start a new career path, gaining practical skills is the best way to prepare yourself. Not only that, but it is important for improving your employability.  

The Australian Government’s Job Outlook service found that the number of people working as general business clerks had strong growth over the past five years and they expect it to continue to grow into the future. It’s predicted that there will be a further 182,000 job openings over the next five years, which ensures good job outcomes for graduates of business administration courses. 

Not only are there plenty of opportunities for graduates, but it means that studying business administration provides a versatile skill set that can support many different roles.  

Our BSB40120 Certificate IV in Business (Administration), which was previously identified with the course code BSB40515, is suitable for people interested in a variety of business services roles. The qualification reflects those who may have supervisory performance responsibilities, as well as a broad range of roles and responsibilities. 

So if you’re considering furthering your career in business administration, but still unsure how a business certificate will benefit you, you’ve come to the right place.  

We’re going to outline some of the key benefits of studying the Certificate IV.  

Benefits of the BSB40120 Certificate IV course 

  • You’ll learn and work within compliance frameworks 

Every job and industry has compliance frameworks, however, for people in administration roles it’s often imperative that they understand and work within these frameworks. This also allows them to manage frameworks within the business and for others.  

Being compliant is an important part of business operations, so it is often business administrators that are tasked with managing this.  

  • You’ll learn to coordinate business resources 

Another important aspect of administration roles is managing and coordinating all of the business resources. This can be anything from digital resources, office resources, financial resources, personal resources and workforce resources. Being able to manage and coordinate all of these things takes training and experience, and relies on good organisational skills. This is a key aspect of the Certificate IV training.  

  • You’ll master organising business meetings 

No matter the company or the industry, meetings are a big part of business practices. It’s important for anyone in a business administration role to be able to organise and manage business meetings. This includes everything from setting up meetings, organising AV technology and ensuring meetings run smoothly and on time. The business administration course will prepare you for organising business meetings and help you master the art of effective meetings. 

  • You’ll develop personal work priorities  

Business administration courses also support your personal development, helping you to better understand how to work efficiently and effectively. Being able to self-manage is key to administrative roles, so developing skills of time management and prioritising tasks is integral to success.  

  • You’ll master designing and creating complex documents 

A large portion of business processes involve complex business documents. It’s important for administrators to be able to understand, design and create text documentation for a vast range of purposes and readers. This is why there is a focus on producing complex text documents in the business administration course. You’ll gain practical, hands-on training to prepare you to tackle any documents that are thrown at you.   

Business Administration course career outcomes  

Training in business administration offers promising outcomes for graduates, particularly given that there are expected to be 182,000 job openings over the next five years in the industry.  

Some of the job outcomes that can come from completing the BSB40120 Certificate IV in Business (Administration) include Administrator, Executive Personal Assistant, Office Administrator, Project Officer, Sales Account Assistant and Sales Agent.
