What is the Certificate 3 Guarantee?

The Certificate 3 Guarantee is a key initiative under
the Queensland Government’s five-year training
reform action plan, Great skills Real opportunities.
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.
It also supports Queensland’s Year 12 graduates
to transition to employment by providing fee-free
training in high-priority qualifications.

What qualifications are subsidised?

Under the Certificate 3 Guarantee, the Queensland
Government provides a subsidy for a range of
certificate III level qualifications. Foundation skills
training and lower-level vocational qualifications
may also be subsidised in certain circumstances
Are you eligible to participate?

The program is open to any Queensland resident
aged 15 years or over who is no longer at school
(with the exception of VET in Schools students) and
is an Australian or New Zealand citizen or Australian
permanent resident and who does not have and
is not enrolled in a certificate III level or higher
qualification.

As you can only access the Certificate 3
Guaranteesubsidy once, it is important you choose
the right course for you to take full advantage of this
Opportunity.

What level of subsidy is available?

The investment priority or importance of the training
determines the size of the government subsidy.
Training in vocational areas that aligns with important
economic and industry skill needs will receive a
higher government subsidy.
A higher subsidy will also be paid to support
participation by disadvantaged learners. More
information on concessional student status is
detailed in the Certificate 3 Guarantee Program Policy
atwww.training.qld.gov.au/certificate3guarantee.
What is considered Concessional?

Under the Certificate 3 Guarantee, concessional participants
are defined as follows:

–– the participant holds a health care concession card or
pensioner concession card issued under Commonwealth
law, or is the partner or a dependant of a person who
holds a Health Care concession card or Pensioner
concession card, and is named on the card; or
–– the participant holds an official form under
Commonwealth law confirming that the participant, his
or her partner or the person of whom the person is a
dependant, is entitled to concessions under a health
care concession card or pensioner concession card; or
–– the participant is an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person.

Do I need to contribute to the cost of
training?

Given the benefits that training provides to
individuals, students undertaking certificate III level
training and non-concessional students undertaking
lower-level training are required to contribute to the
costs of their training through a co-contribution fee.
The fee may be paid on your behalf by an employer or
another third party but cannot be paid by the training
provider.
