This fully-online course has been created for new and aspiring company directors and board members. It will accelerate your learning and understanding of what it takes to be on a board. You will gain all of your foundational knowledge in one affordable and flexible course that is accessible to those looking to enhance their boardroom potential.

This always-open one-of-a-kind course lets you study at your own pace and become a more knowledgable board member as you learn from some the best subject matter experts from around Australia. All of the Boardroom Bootcamp contributors have board experience, and many have been formally recognised for their business and professional achievements. You can view their profiles here. Keep scrolling to see an overview of each of the course modules and units.

Have your personal questions answered by an experienced company director who is available as your course supervisor via the course forum.


You will keep on track with the course through weekly emails over 12 weeks. The time investment required will be around four to six hours per week. However, we know that life happens. That’s why we give you up to 12 months to complete the course work to be eligible for the Summary of Topics Completed. If you’re wanting to work through the course faster (for example, over 5 days), you can do that too!

Stand out from the board competition by gaining your Certificate of Board Readiness by successfully completing the end-of-course multiple choice exam. A pass mark of 80% is required.

All participants receive a Summary of Topics Completed once you have finished the course, including the estimated number of hours you have invested into the course, to demonstrate your continued professional development.

Still wondering “What’s in it for me?” Here is an overview of the value you will receive beyond the boardroom from completing the Boardroom Bootcamp course.


Boardroom Bootcamp is a co-ed course designed specifically for new and aspiring company directors and board members from all professional backgrounds and any type of board (i.e. for-profit, not-for-profit, family business, etc.).

If you are looking to join a board in the near future or have been on a board for a number of years and looking to formalise your director knowledge, this course will help you understand your role, duties, and responsibilities as a company director, as well as how you can be a high-performing board member and set yourself up for future board success.

Although there are no restrictions to who can enrol in Boardroom Bootcamp, you only get out what you put in. You need to be committed to working through the course work, completing the learning activities, and initiating and engaging in discussions on the course forum. Asking questions relating to your personal board journey helps bring the theory to life and gives you high personal value from participating in Boardroom Bootcamp. A good idea is to treat it like you would any face-to-face learning situation.
