Only the gaps between teh Certificate IV in PMP program and the Diploma level course are evaluated.

Assessment is marked within 2 working weeks of submission and a detailed report is emailed to the participant giving feedback on the submission. Students may not achieve competency upon their initial submission. If this is the case, their trainer/assessor will provide feedback on what needs to be addressed. It is highly recommended that the participant reads through their notes and materials prior to resubmitting their work. Each student has a maximum of 2 resubmission attempts to achieve competency.
