Certificate 3 Guarantee

Gain a post-school qualification to enter the job market, re-enter the workforce, or take the next step in your career. 

The Queensland Government invests in training based on industry advice to provide Queenslanders with the skills they need to gain meaningful and sustainable employment through the provider of their choice. 

Government funding is directed to minimise skills shortages, focus on training for jobs that are in demand in our critical industries, and increase the number of Queenslanders with formal post-school qualifications.

As a pre-qualified supplier, we are able to offer the following government subsidised training in Queensland. View the link here and information for more detail. 

Certificate 3 Guarantee Courses Available

The Certificate 3 Guarantee supports eligible individuals to complete their first post-school certificate III level qualification and increase their skills to move into employment, re-enter the workforce or advance their career.

The program also supports school students to access training and Queensland’s Year 12 graduates to transition to employment by providing free training in high priority qualifications.

As a condition of your enrolment, you will be required to complete a student training and employment survey within three months of finishing or discontinuing your training.

Students are entitled to access government subsidised training for one completed Certificate III qualification. Once an eligible individual successfully completes a qualification through this program, they will no longer be eligible for further subsidised training under this program.
