About

Who we are

Transformed is Australia’s leading Registered Training Organisation (RTO No. 88152) that specialises in delivering world-class training and nationally recognized qualifications in procurement, contract management, project management, building and civil construction. 

We deliver short courses and qualifications by distance learning, interactive online programs, intensive on-site face to face programs and Recognition of Prior Learning 
(RPL) assessments. 

Founded in 2006 by CEO Michael Young, Transformed was created to fill the address the chronic shortage of skilled and qualified project managers in the Australian market. With years of industry experience Michael had always had an interest in training and saw a need to set up a development programme for project managers. He had been receiving an increasing number of enquiries from individuals and organisations about where to find good project managers or how to become a project manager. Project Management was growing in recognition and was becoming important particularly in the IT space but there was a recognised national skills shortage especially in the construction industry. 

Why Transformed?
Transformed makes a difference by educating individuals and organisations by building skills and knowledge in the fields of: project management, procurement, contract management and building and civil construction. We inspire our stakeholders with our forward thinking, flexible and innovative approach together with our commitment to outstanding customer service. 

A core strength of Transformed is the calibre of our facilitators who are all well credentialed and experienced industry experts. Our facilitators are regularly engaged by organisations, both in Australia and internationally, to manage and deliver procurement, IT, building and civil construction projects. This experience allows our facilitators to bring into workshops and course their extensive, current, practical experience as well as an intimate understanding of emerging issues and trends in each specific industry whilst providing an unparalleled array of tips, tricks and real-world examples. As highly experienced trainers they are also able to engage with all participants regardless of their learning styles and adjust their facilitation according to the audience ensuring that all learning outcomes are achieved.

Transformed understands that in a busy and time and budget constrained environment, having time away from work to complete assessments can be a challenge. This can lead to poor value for money and does not result in you achieving the qualification or training outcome you need. This is why Transformed has carefully designed and structured the programs to take into account best practices in learning design, adult learning principles and the latest approaches, such as the 70:20:10 framework. 

Our track record speaks for itself, with our completion rate for qualifications being over 90%, which is almost three times the rate of most other providers who average around 35%. As a result, we are the training provider of choice for many of Australia’s leading government and private sector organisations.
