You can be a small business success story! Study in your own time with the support of your own business mentor!
If you are ready to start your own business or take your existing business to new heights, the BSB42618 Certificate IV in New Small Business is the ideal program for you!
The program suits both micro and small business operators and provides opportunities for you to work on your business as you progress through your studies. You can undertake this course before or after you start your business.
The Certificate IV in New Small Business will get you working on your business, rather than just in your business. It will help you to learn the essential skills you need to establish, run and grow a successful business. From understanding your legal responsibilities to planning your finances, from how to reach customers to knowing how to keep them coming back for more, you’ll gain small business know-how and build skills that will support your transition to becoming a successful small business operator.
By the time you finish your study program, you will have a complete business plan that will take your business into the future and give you the best chance of success. You can use your business plan to get your business off the ground or to manage a smooth transition to the next generation.
