Our Courses

What is the difference between the Graduate Certificate and the Graduate Diploma?

IQ-AM’s post graduate courses are an Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) level 8.

The Graduate Certificate focuses on the tactical aspects of Asset Management.

The Graduate Diploma looks at the strategic levels in Asset Management. 

Are your courses Australian Nationally Recognised Training?

Our post graduate qualifications and units of competency are nationally accredited. All recognised training in Australia be found on

We do provide some non-accredited training for groups and individuals within organisations.

How long will the course take?

Post graduate course:

For full time study, a post graduate course can be completed in as little as 8 months. To achieve this time frame, an individual will need to show a high commitment to completing all the required outcomes.

Part time study, time taken to complete the course will be dependent on individual circumstances and commitment to meet the required outcomes.

Other training:

Delivery of single units of competency and non-accredited training are held in person over a 1 to 3 consecutive day workshop. Successful completion of a course at the end of a workshop is dependent on an individual having met all the outcome requirements of class participation and their recorded response to activities in the workbook.

Competency, what does this mean for completing my course

We deliver training and course outcomes based on a competency framework. Our courses are designed to reflect both your knowledge of asset management and your skill in applying it

Qualifications are made up of units of competency.

Recognition of Prior Learning

You can apply for an RPL on some or all of your assessment requirements. Evidence of your previous experience can be submitted if the outputs of that experience correspond to the outcomes required to achieve units of competency.
