Commercial Capability Training

Organisations throughout Australia and New Zealand spend billions of dollars on contractors and service providers every year. This presents significant commercial opportunities to save money and improve the performance of your contracts by understanding good commercial practices that drive value for money from service providers.

Staff from across government departments and infrastructure delivery agencies can further develop their commercial capability through our training courses that have been developed with input from Victoria’s infrastructure delivery agencies.

Attendees come from a range of different roles including project management, commercial, legal, procurement and stakeholder engagement. We also have different experience, knowledge and capability when it comes to commercials, which is why we offer Commercial Capability training courses at the Graduate and Emerging Professional, Intermediate and Advanced levels.

More information on what is included within each course can be found here:


The criteria for attendance at each of these courses are as follows:

Graduate and Emerging Leaders Commercial Capability Training

Our Commercial Capability Training is linked to the Commercial Capability Framework developed by BRS in consultation with Office of Projects Victoria. The Commercial Capability Framework is a tool to define and measure commercial skills and competencies of Victorian Public Service (VPS) and Executive Officer staff working in infrastructure delivery roles. It gives guidance on the behaviours, skills and expertise that reflect different levels of commercial capability required to deliver successful project outcomes.
