Certificate 3 Guarantee
Access funding to study in Queensland
The Certificate 3 Guarantee provides a Queensland government subsidy towards the training costs for eligible individuals undertaking their first Certificate III qualification after leaving school.
It also supports school students and Year 12 school leavers by giving them fee free access to training in high priority qualifications, helping them into employment and is funded by the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training, Queensland Government Initiative.
Eligible students are only entitled to one Government subsidised training place in a funded Certificate III qualification. It is very important that you take the time to consider and compare your training options and costs before signing an enrolment form or committing to a course of study which will use up your entitlement.
What you will pay
Student co-contribution fees for concessional and non-concessional participants apply to all qualifications offered through the Certificate 3 Guarantee Program.
Student Co-contribution Fees are the essential training costs for participants to undertake the qualification and include service fees, material fees and any other costs associated with delivering the training.
Student Co-contribution fees may be paid by unit of competency, contact our team for more information.
Students may be eligible for funding via Skills Assure State Funded training. Contact us to find out more about what may be available.
