Skills2Procure training programs

Skills2Procure is managed by Queensland Government Procurement and offers a suite of training and development options for procurement and contract management professionals. The training is aimed at all skill levels, from beginners looking for awareness training, through to advanced practitioners seeking to further increase their depth of expertise.

Whilst the programs are designed to cater for individual participants, some programs do accommodate group bookings.

Some of the awareness and foundational skills offerings, including eLearning, and the Community of Practice are free for the participant, however other training programs incur a cost which will require approval from your agency to attend.
