Procurement is at the core of business operations; it dictates the products and services utilised in delivering value to respective customers, shareholders or tax payers. In the complexity of the constantly evolving marketplace, procurement skills are being heavily sought after in delivering value for money, sustainable solutions and collaborative partnerships.

Our Certificate IV in Procurement and Contracting has been specifically designed to recognise the skills of those working in procurement and contract roles specifically within the public sector. It covers the broad range of skills required to operate without supervision in a procurement and contracting environment.

Upon successful completion of fifteen (15) units of competency, participants will be awarded the Certificate IV in Procurement and Contracting (PSP40616).

Participants will undertake learning to sharpen their skills (as per key skills section) as well as the opportunity to apply project management concepts to work-based situations. This will provide participants with the skills they need to work as effective project team members as well as the confidence to apply them in a practical setting.
