Problem solving secures success

Problem solving is said to be one of the top three skills required for the modern workforce. Effective problem solving involves being able to work with others to understand an issue, and to identify and remove its causes. And if individuals and teams can do this, there's no telling what an organisation can achieve.

Why earn a credential in problem solving?

Strong problem solving skills will go a long way to securing your success in a changing workforce. The Problem solving credential will:

  • Formalise the problem solving skills you have gained so far
  • Prove your problem solving expertise to employers
  • Help future proof your career by verifying your skills in this critical area
  • Help you become a better practitioner as you reflect on your capability
Depending on which level you achieve the credential in, it could lead to credit towards a post-graduate qualification at Deakin.
