About the Company Directors Course
The Victorian Public Sector Commission and the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) have adapted the Company Directors Course to the Victorian public sector. The core of the course is unchanged and has been supplemented by public sector examples with particular reference to transparency, public accountability and stakeholder engagement.
This is an opportunity for Victorian public sector executives and public entity directors to undertake the Company Directors Course with their peers and to learn what it takes to contribute to organisational governance while gaining a thorough knowledge of the role and duties of directors. All courses are limited to 25 participants.
Participants who pass the optional assessment will gain the Company Directors Course award.

- The Role of the Board and Practice of Directorship
