The Meetings & Events Australia’s Essentials in Meetings Management is now available online.
This resource has been designed as an introductory course for those who may be interested in event management as a career but are unsure what it involves and whether this is the right career choice for them.
MEA CEO, Robyn Johnson says, “This course provides a good foundation to learn about the events industry and what it takes to be an Event Manager. You will learn the language, structure, skills required to organise a quality meeting or event”.
The Meetings Essentials Online Program can be used by individuals as a knowledge entry point into the meetings and events industry; an induction tool for new employees or as a performance measurement tool for employees ready to move onto more senior roles.
There are 11 topics in the course that includes setting meeting/event objectives, budget, sponsorship management, venue selection, food and beverage, exhibitions and on-site management. The course can be purchased as a package or topics can be purchased separately if students only want to study specific areas of event management.
This is a non-accredited course, however it does involve assessments which will be reviewed by a qualified trainer assessor and each student will receive a Certificate of Completion for the topics successfully completed.
