*Industry Placement is a requirement of these programs

To be eligible for the Certificate 3 Guarantee Program, you must: 

  • Be 15 years of age or older, and no longer at school (with the exception of VET in School (VETiS) students)

  • Permanently reside in Queensland

  • Be an Australian citizen or Australian permanent resident (includes humanitarian entrant), temporary resident with the necessary visa and work permits on the pathway to permanent residency, or a New Zealand citizen

  • Not hold, and not be enrolled in, a certificate III or higher-level qualification, not including qualifications completed at school and foundation skills training.

A student can be unemployed and seeking work, or working on a full time, part time or casual basis.

 

What are the modes of delivery?

  • Completely online

  • Distance/Correspondence

  • At your workplace

  • Classroom based delivery, night classes also available upon demand

 

How much would it cost?

A co-contribution fee applies to all students partaking in the program:

Concessional co-contribution fee = $29

Non-concessional co-contribution fee = $59

 

Concessional students are defined as follows:

  • The student holds a health care concession card or pensioner concession card or is the partner or dependent of a person who holds one of these cards, and is named on the card

  • The student can provide an official form confirming that they or their partner are entitled to the concessions

  • The student is an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander

  • the student is a school student and is enrolled in a VETiSprogram (may include youth in detention)

  • The student has a disability

  • The student is an adult prisoner

We will require evidence to prove that you are a concessional student.

 

What else should I know before participating in this program?

Once you have completed your qualification under the Certificate 3 Guarantee Program, you will no longer be eligible for another subsidised training place.

Students undertaking industry placement qualifications are required to undertake vocational placement which forms part of your assessment. This will require you to work (unpaid) in a live working environment. Duration of vocational placement will depend on your specific course requirements.

The delivery of lower-level training to eligible students will be permissible in exceptional circumstances. Typically, this will be when the lower-level training leads directly to employment, or the student is identified as requiring prior skilling to ensure a reasonable chance of succeeding at the Certificate III level.
