As competition for highly coveted board positions intensifies, standing out from the crowd has never been more important. Completing the Company Directors Course assessment and attempting to attain your GAICD post-nominals is one way to differentiate yourself and boost your director CV.

Company Directors Course: Preparing for Assessment is a series of workshops (11 hours total) developed to support those who have attended the Company Directors Course but have not attempted or successfully completed the assessment.

The course is highly practical and targeted, guiding you step-by-step through what you need to do to complete the assessment. The workshops focus on providing an optimum learning environment through the experience of an in-depth assessment breakdown.
