Certificate 3 Guarantee Program*
(*Funded via Investing in Skills – Certificate 3 Guarantee, a Queensland Government Initiative)
The Queensland Government’s Department of Employment, Small Business and Training administers the Certificate 3 Guarantee Program
What is Funded?
From 1 July 2013, the Government has introduced a training entitlement which provides subsidies to assist Queenslanders to obtain their first certificate level III qualification as listed on their subsidy list #.
The principal aim of the Certificate 3 Guarantee under the VET Investment plan is to assist working-age Queenslanders without a certificate III or higher level qualification to complete a nationally recognised qualification that leads to::
• a job outcome for individuals trying to enter the labour market or their desired industry/career
• advancement in the workplace or career progression for individuals already employed in their preferred industry
As you can only access the Certificate 3 Guarantee subsidy once, it is important you choose the right course for you to take full advantage of this opportunity # The Certificate 3 Gurantee provides subsidies for only one qualification
Under this program students are required to make a financial contribution towards the cost of the training and assessment services for their selected course. There is a mandatory student contribution fee for all students undertaking a subsidised Certificate Qualification. There are two levels of contributions a general student-non-concession and a concessional student.
A concessional student fee is applicable for the following eligible students:
- Health Care concession card holders (and their partner or dependents)
- Pensioner concession card holders (and their partner or dependents)
- Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander persons

(*Funded via Investing in Skills , a Queensland Government Initiative)The Queensland Government’s Department of Employment, Small Business and Training administers the Certificate 4 Higher Level Skills Program
The program provides a government subsidy to support eligible individuals to access one subsidised training place in selected certificate IV level and above qualifications, or priority skill sets.
The aim is to assist individuals to gain the higher level skills required to secure employment or career advancement in priority industries or to transition to university. Employers may also be able to access training to address workforce development needs
Subsidies are provided for a select number of certificate IV, diploma and advanced diploma level qualifications, and priority skill sets critical to productivity within the workplace.
Individuals undertaking training must contribute to their training costs through a ‘co-contribution fee’. The co-contribution fee will be greater for higher level training given the increased benefits that accrue to individuals and industry.
The fee may be paid on behalf of the individual by an employer or another third party.
# Any student who successfully completes a Certificate IV qualification will no longer be eligible for a subsidised training place under the Higher Level Skills Program
