Today I received a resume from a candidate, with the following list of qualifications.
Diploma in Leadership and Management March 2015 – December 2015
Diploma in Business March 2015 – December 2015
Certificate IV in Business Admin Administration March 2013 – June 2013
Certificate IV in Occupation Health and Safety and Risk Management March 2013 – June 2013
Certificate III in Business Admin Administration March 2013 – June 2013
Certificate I in Vocational Preparation March 2013 – June 2013
These are obviously courses run by private training providers, I have hidden their names, however, if you look at the duration of the courses, are these organisations seriously telling us that the quality of training is the standard an employer would expect, for this level of certificate and diploma?
These organisations receive excessive amounts of tax payer dollars from the government to run these courses, however, their is clearly no audit on the quality of the training, and this is simply a crash course and tick and flick method to gain the $$ from the government.
I can assure everyone looking to do these courses through such organisations, we will ignore the qualification as the training will be inadequate and will therefore have no meaning ore relevance to us.
