Get On Board Australia

Online course for new and aspiring company directors

About Boardroom Bootcamp

This 12-week online course has been created specifically for new and aspiring company directors and board members. 

This course will provide you with everything that you should know and everything that you need to know as a director (think of all the stuff that no one will tell you about that you usually have to learn over time). The time investment required will be around 4 – 6 hours per week.

The topics covered in the course have been contributed by subject matter experts from around Australia, giving you access to high quality information and learning from some of Australia’s best and brightest. You can read about our contributors in our Expert Network.

There is a lot to learn in this course, and that’s why we have made sure that an experienced company director will be available as your course supervisor. They will be active on the course forum, and will run a webinar with the rest of your course classmates at the end of each module. The class will learn together with weekly emails keeping you on track and up-to-date with the course material.

At the end of the 12 weeks, there will be a quiz to test your knowledge and a successful pass (80% +) will earn you a Certificate of Board Readiness that will be posted to you, along with a Summary of Topics Completed. This summary will also include the estimated number of hours you have invested into the course so that you can show your commitment to continued professional development (CPD).

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.
