ABOUT THIS COURSE

Rock the world of events. Use your creative skills to produce the most amazing events everyone wants to go to


Ever thought ‘I could do much better than that’ when invited to a poorly-planned event? Are you born to organize? Have 1,000 ideas of super events running through your head? You sound like the perfect event planner.

Today’s event planners need to take control of every detail from conception to clean up and the planning is critical. It is the planning that makes an event successful - making for happy clients and ecstatic guests. Are you ready to be that person?

Today’s event planners can work as freelancers specializing in such things as business events, weddings, concerts, fashions shows and much more. Or, you may find yourself working for an event planning company that works to host events for city governments, casinos, schools, or concert venues.

The possibilities are endless and by 2022 the event planning industry expects careers to grow by 33% so now is the time to get started. An industry with lots of variety and predicted career growth - doesn’t that sound fantastic?
