Vocational training is a great way to get the combination of practical skills and industry knowledge that can enable you to enter an industry for the first time.
These are nationally recognised qualifications that you can complete at a different levels of difficulty, helping you advance in your chosen career.
We can deliver vocational training as a traineeship in Queensland only. For information about delivery in other states, please contact us. Some courses will also use a combination of blended online learning with classroom delivery.
You can complete your studies with us in a number of fields:
- Business Studies
- Health Services
- Workplace Health and Safety
- Leadership and Management
It's important that you take some time to decide which level is the most appropriate for you. The amount of time it takes to complete a course will vary depending on the level as will the level of depth in each subject. Be sure to check the pre-requisite information before applying to enrol.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and Credit Transfers (CT)
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process that allows people to use work / life experience to be formally document and submitted as evidence that a student has already acquired the skills or knowledge for a particular unit or element of the course. So long as this evidence meets the requirements of the unit of competency, you will not need to attend the training specific to that unit.
The evidence provided will be assessed according to the Rules of Evidence and Principles of Assessment.
The recognition process is delivered in English, so a student must hold the Language Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) requirements to successfully complete this process. The students' level of language, literacy and numeracy will be informally assessed via a conversation between the assessor and the candidate. The conversation will include discussion about the student's work/life experiences relevant to the course applied for.
Costs for Traineeships (QLD only)
We only conduct courses funded as traineeships in Queensland. Eligible individuals 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.
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 other costs associated with delivering the training. The Student Co-Contribution fee is $15.00 per course.
For more information, please have a look at our page dedicated to costs and funding.
