DESBT Small Business Online Training Program

The Queensland Government has partnered with MPAQ to provide free access to online training to eligible Queensland small businesses and their employees. The online training being made available is an initiative under Queensland’s Economic Recovery Plan and is to support you and your employees recover from COVID-19 and to enable future individual and business growth.

The Small Business Online Training Program offers the perfect opportunity for the Master Plumbers’ Association of Queensland (MPAQ) to promote educational awareness in embracing technology and encouraging participants to enrol in online education and training; which will be an important factor in the future of any Queensland business and their employees. For many small businesses and employees, upskilling could be the best first step for them to recover from the impacts of COVID-19 and this additional training will help them pursue new opportunities as our economy recovers.

We would like to highlight an equally important asset that Queensland businesses need to invest in to ensure not only the future of our Queensland industries but also the longevity of Queensland business itself and for their employees.

As a peak industry body and Registered Training Organisation, MPAQ are uniquely placed to deliver online education and training, Queensland wide.

If your business has been impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, either minor or severely, then you can access our free online library of courses tailored to small business.
