CHC44015 Certificate IV in Coordination of Volunteer Programs

Volunteering WA in partnership with The Centre for Volunteering, through the National School of Volunteer Management [RTO #90031], is pleased to offer the Certificate IV in Coordination of Volunteer Programs (CHC44015).

This online course has been developed with the not-for-profit and community service professional in mind and is responsive to the latest trends and requirements for volunteer coordinators in Australia.

This qualification reflects the role for workers who are responsible for the coordination of volunteers within a program or organisation. Volunteer coordinators provide ongoing management and support to volunteers and are the main point of contact for volunteers.

At this level, workers will generally be autonomous and are required to supervise and lead volunteers in projects or teams. These workers may be employed in a range of industry sectors and in a complex, regularly changing context. This is a management level course intended for those in volunteering or paid positions in the not for profit sector.

Successful coordinators of volunteer programs:

  • are aware of current and emerging models of volunteering
  • adapt their practice to changing community priorities, demographics, and expectations
  • shape how their organisation understands and works with its volunteers
  • support their volunteers in ethical, safe and meaningful practice

This qualification will enhance your work in planning and administering volunteer programs and recruiting and supporting volunteers in the ever-changing environment.


This is a nationally recognised course from the CHC Community Services Training Package. Learners who successfully complete all the assessments and are assessed as competent will be awarded with CHC44015 Certificate IV in Coordination of Volunteer Programs. This is an accelerated training course suitable for workers experienced in working with volunteers in many industry sectors including community work, health, arts, emergency services, sport, recreation, parks, heritage, libraries and museums; and local government employees.
