About the Course
BSB41915 Certificate IV in Business (Governance) introduces the key elements of operating in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and the capacity of Australian Indigenous leaders to affect governance. This course is designed to reflect the roles of individuals who undertake responsibilities required of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations, and who bring a wide range of knowledge, skills, talents and experience to their organisations and require further training. Boards of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community-managed organisations operate in two worlds: they have cultural obligations to specific communities as well as legal and financial obligations to the wider community and funding bodies. In this special role, board members ensure that while fulfilling their duties, their contributions are individually and collectively of value to the board, organisation and community.
