Custom training

Landgate is a Western Australian State Government agency that runs a comprehensive and integrated public land information system. We offer custom training programs that provide opportunities for international governments to learn how to operate a modern administration of land information system. 

Training programs

Landgate has a strong reputation as a quality provider of comprehensive and practical staff training programs and customised study tours.

We have experienced trainers that can develop specialised programs to build knowledge and capacity, aimed specifically for your staff.

Our training programs are practical and interactive, enabling participants to learn from Landgate's subject matter experts. We can design programs that run for one day or up to four weeks, depending on your budget and availability.

Participants will experience: 

  • Firsthand observations of the workings of an innovative government agency with a dual focus: to provide the State with accurate and secure land information whilst also being enterprising in its business approach
  • Working alongside Landgate's professionals to learn about our sophisticated land information systems and processes
  • Attending interactive and in-depth lectures on elected topics delivered by subject matter experts, as well as relevant site visits and tours
  • Developing relevant business skills in a land information management context
  • Developing professional networks and relationships in Australia and with other participants.

Aid-funded fellowship programs

Landgate can also work with your organisation to seek aid funding through international development agencies. These aid-funded programs can assist with funding training programs for developing countries. 

Study tours

Landgate can develop customised study tours. These are generally focused at a strategic level and attended by senior/executive leaders. By showcasing Landgate's key strategic initiatives and policy development, which has led to our excellence in operating a world-class land information authority, attendees gain high-level knowledge to support reform in their own countries.
