What does this mean for you?

The Certificate 3 Guarantee allows eligible Queenslanders access to a Queensland government subsidised training place, up to and including their first post-school certificate level III qualification in priority training areas. The Certificate 3 Guarantee subsidy for a course is paid to the training provider to reduce the cost of the certificate III course to the student. A co-contribution fee ($25 for non-concession card holders and $10 for valid concession card holders) is to be paid at time of enrolment.

The amount of subsidy provided by the Certificate 3 Guarantee varies depending on the demand for skilled workers in a certain industries and personal circumstances of each student.
