SpecTraining Pty Ltd officially became a Registered Training Organisation on the 22nd of August 2008, by brothers Terry and Dan Hill.
Both Terry and Dan believe that training, course development and learning resources, should be of the highest quality and standard. This belief informs the company’s simple but powerful mission.
To deliver the highest quality outcomes for our students and stakeholders by delivering personalised, flexible and industry-relevant training.
- Flexibility – what do I need to do to make this work?
- Attentiveness – I am open to all stakeholder feedback
- Engagement – I help my team and customers when I am able
- Integrity – I follow through on my word
- Accountability – I take personal responsibility for the outcomes I can influence
- Stand out from our competitors by providing quality training, learning products, and specialised client services.
- Remain focused on the end results for our clients through a collaborative project-based approach.
- Demonstrate the importance of diversity in all aspects of our business by encouraging input and participation from all stakeholders.
- Respect the individuality of students by providing one-on-one coaching, where required, for all learners.
- To continually develop the skills and competencies of staff, directors and our network of qualified contractors by providing ongoing professional development opportunities.
Where we train
At a time when the world faced a new global pandemic, SpecTraining took the opportunity to build upon its existing eLearning skills and technical knowledge, to pivot to face to face virtual training. The learning results exceeded expectations with many students providing feedback about the ease and satisfaction they received by choosing to learn in the virtual environment. As a result, SpecTraining will continue to utilise this format and expand the use of new technologies to improve the learning experience. This means that you can attend a SpecTraining workshop from anywhere in the world (time zones permitting).
Additionally, SpecTraining run local face to face courses in Brisbane, and in regional Qld centres that have included Gladstone, Rockhampton, Mackay, Townsville as well as NSW in Western Sydney. Students in other states and territories don’t miss out either – with virtual sessions being made available.
What we train
While SpecTraining’s focus is on the education of vocational trainers and assessors, its founders both have master’s degrees in business and have been teaching leadership, management and project management for over a decade. SpecTraining includes qualifications in these fields that have been uniquely designed to be integrated into real-world workplaces; allowing students to gather evidence from real workplace activities and utilise online and workshop-based learning to improve their employability skills and leadership knowledge.
Our main focus is on training delivery for education, corporate and government clients, though in recent years we have successfully extended our accredited training offerings to the public. Developing useful, high quality and timely content is one of SpecTraining’s key competencies. This started with the development of Certificate and Diploma level learner guides and assessments across business, WHS and project management disciplines, which later progressed to the creation of intelligence analyst courses and online university study guides.
SpecTraining utilises a network of skilled writers, instructional designers, assessors and trainers who are chosen for their experience and level of expertise. In partnership with other accredited and established VET providers, SpecTraining provides a wide range of nationally accredited training from Certificate IV to Diploma level courses. Through its network of graduates and industry specialists, SpecTraining also provides short-term contract trainer support to assist organisations in delivering training and workplace assessment.
Social purpose and responsibility
SpecTraining is aware of the social and environmental impacts of its work. Our purpose includes the training and accreditation of people in workplaces across all industry sectors. As such, we value the contribution of all our stakeholders in the continuous improvement of our systems and processes; with the aim to improve outcomes for individuals, their workplaces, communities and the greater environment.
SpecTraining demonstrates this value by reducing paper-based waste where possible, encouraging the use of technology to limit travel, offering personalised support to contextualise training to best suit the needs of the individual or corporate client, offering non-profit and returned veteran discounts, and encouraging life-long learning opportunities free (or discounted) to past students.
Enterprise and organisational HR training support
SpecTraining’s academically qualified and experienced staff can provide initial training studies and training needs analysis for your organisation.
