Queensland Certificate III Guarantee

QLD Certificate 3 Guarantee 

The Certificate 3 Guarantee Program provides eligible Queensland residents access to Certificate III level qualifications through a Queensland Government funded program. The amount of the subsidy provided to each approved training provider will depend on the demand for skilled workers and the needs of the students. Refer to the Student Contribution Fees section below for applicable fees under funding arrangements for this course.
 

How do I know if I am eligible?

The Certificate 3 Guarantee is for students who commence on or after 1 July 2013. To be eligible a student must:

  • not hold or be undertaking a Certificate III or higher level qualification (Certificate III qualifications completed at school are not counted)
  • be 15 years of age or older
  • have finished secondary school or left school
  • An Australian or New Zealand citizen or permanent resident in Queensland.

Employment status and/or level of education does not matter, only the standard entry requirements for the course of study.

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.
