Certificate 3 Guarantee

Assisting individuals to gain the skills required to secure employment 

What is the Certificate 3 Guarantee?

The Certificate 3 Guarantee program provides a government subsidy to support eligible individuals to access one subsidised training place in selected certificate 3 qualifications or priority skill sets. The aim is to assist individuals to gain the skills required to secure employment or career advancement in priority industries. Employers may also be able to access training to address workforce development needs.

The Certificate 3 Guarantee only subsidies one completed qualification per participant. For an overview of what the Certificate 3 Guarantee means for students, view the Student Fact Sheet.

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

Am I 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 school students) and is an Australian or New Zealand citizen or Australian permanent resident (including humanitarian entrants), or a temporary resident with the necessary visa and on the pathway to permanent residency.

Prospective students must not have or currently be enrolled in a certificate 3 level or higher qualification (not including qualifications completed at school and foundation skills training).

Do I need to contribute to the cost?

Students undertaking Certificate 3 training are required to contribute to the costs of their training through a co-contribution fee.

The amount of your out-of-pocket expense will vary depending on the course you undertake. For current pricing please visit the Courses page.
