Everything You Need to Know
By Ogbe Airiodion | Senior Change Management Leader
Should You Get a Prosci Certification in Australia or New Zealand (NZ)? Everything You Need to Know, Including How to Get Certified.
Why have Prosci Australia and Prosci New Zealand both become so popular? Why are many organizations now requiring a lot of their New Zealand and Australian change practitioners to become certified in Prosci? Is a Prosci Change Management Certification in Australia & NZ really worth the high cost of $6,195.00 AUD?
Although there are several different Australia and NZ change management certifications to choose from, one reason why Prosci change management certification in Australia and New Zealand has become so popular is that it is based on over 20 years of detailed organizational change management studies, involving how individuals go through a change within an organization.
As stated by Prosci Australia:
“Over the last two-decades, Prosci has studied organizational change implementations, noting what worked and what didn’t work, and why. In the process, we established the Prosci methodology and processes for practitioners to effectively implement successful change. We created repeatable, effective methods for managing the people side of change. Our Prosci change management courses and training programs come from this best practice research based on the experience of thousands of practitioners.”
Prosci claims that they have provided training to over 70,000 individuals who have become certified in the Prosci change management methodologies.

- More change management job opportunities become available to you in Australia and New Zealand.
- It enables you to increase your change management job performance.
- The Australia and NZ Prosci training are designed for you to leave with a change management plan.
- All course materials are included with the Prosci Australia and NZ certification fees.
- The Prosci ADKAR training is only a 3-day event.

- The biggest Prosci Australia and NZ training disadvantage expressed by change practitioners is the high cost that you pay to get the 3-day training and certification.
- At a cost of $6,195 (AUD) for individuals, it costs about $2,065 per day for a Prosci change management training in Australia and New Zealand! And $1,898 per day per user at the team rate!
- Other limitations to the Prosci Australia and New Zealand training programs are as follows:
- Limited change toolkits and templates for practitioners. As part of the Prosci training program, you are not provided with end-to-end, free, comprehensive, templates that you can use for conducting your change impacts assessments, readiness assessments, and other change assessments. You also do not have any free change management reporting dashboard analytics for managing all aspects of your change management programs.
- Best methodologies for conducting key change management deliverables like delivering training to impacted users, tracking training successes, and engaging with impacted end-users (the employees, managers, customers, vendors, etc. that will directly be impacted by the change) are not adequately covered during the Australia and NZ Prosci training and certification program.
