Course Overview 

Business and Management

The Certificate IV in New Small Business is designed to provide you with well-developed business skills for your small to medium enterprise. 

Smaller Businesses sometimes do not find time to formalise skill sets. The fast and often frantic nature of this business sector sometimes restricts time allocations.

A Certificate IV in New Small Business with Scorpion Training Solutions will help you gain skills to be better equipped to manage the plan and administrate within this business sector.

Typically a Small Business will consistently face unpredictable problems, require detailed analysis and evaluation of information from a variety of sources, followed by incisive and quick action to achieve resolutions and continued operation. Usually completed by a single manager/owner or a small group rather than by spreading the load across many departments or section managers.

This certificate will help you gain strong leadership skills, guidance/mentoring to others and responsibility for the productivity and welfare of employees.

This qualification is suitable for small business managers who use well‑developed skills and a broad knowledge base to solve a range of defined unpredictable problems and analyse and evaluate information from a variety of sources.  They may provide leadership and guidance to others, and have responsibility for the output of others.

If you are looking to formalise your business experience, or begin your career in business, the Certificate IV in New Small Business could put you a step ahead of the rest!
