Want real-life experience in the events arena rather than just spending hours in a classroom? Our Diploma of Events is much more than textbooks and tests. Not only will you learn how to manage events - from promotion, venue hire, planning, admin, events industry software - you will actually create and execute events. The hands-on approach means you'll be ready to launch your exciting career as soon as you graduate.

Overall this qualification reflects the role of individuals who use sound knowledge of event management processes and a broad range of skills to coordinate event operations. They will operate independently and make operational event management decisions. This qualification at Martin also has three main streams; Events, Travel and a blended stream (Travel and Tourism). Yu can also chose one of these streams which are described below:

Event Steam: Events are diverse in nature and this steam provides a pathway to work in events in a range of industries including the tourism and travel, hospitality, sport, cultural and community sectors. These may be event management companies, event venues, or organisations that organise their own events.

Tourism Stream: This stream provides you with the opportunity to learn how to be responsible for others and make a range of operational business decisions relating to both domestic and international travel. This stream reflects the role of individuals who wish to pursue a career as a travel agent or travel consultant/salesperson

    Diploma of Event Management

    I knew that Martin would prepare me for a career in Events. Work experience was a great help in understanding how things are run and probably the most rewarding part of the course. I currently work as an Event and Marketing Coordinator at the Sherrin Group. My role involves coordinating corporate social events, internal events and my biggest task is the annual Sherrin Riverfire Charity Gala Dinner. I am also in the process of starting to run my own events on the side.

  • Stephanie

    Diploma of Event Management

    I wanted to get the right skills and qualifications to start my career in event management, and I knew a Martin Diploma could get me there. The event subjects were great in giving me the skills I need to organise different types of events, including conference programs. I am working at the Australian Council for Private Education and Training (ACPET) organising their events. My plan for the future is to always aim high and achieve the best I can. I plan to one day work for myself and build a strong reputation within the events industry.
