HIA-CSQ Small Business Program

Given the important role that small businesses play in the growth of the regional economy, Construction Skills Queensland (CSQ) and HIA are teaming up to deliver a Small Business Program, assisting these businesses to grow, survive and prosper.

With comprehensive resources and experienced instructors, there is a selection of three individual workshops each of 3 hours duration. They are designed to increase the capability and capacity of small construction businesses and ensure a successful future.

  • Estimating and Quoting - A how to guide
  • Financial & Budgeting Skills - To build a financially sustainable small business
  • Negotiation & Conflict Management Skills - Why is this so important in your business
