ABOUT CERTIFICATE 3 GUARANTEE FUNDING:
Students who are eligible for subsidised training and assessment under the Queensland Government’s Certificate 3 Guarantee program are required to make a financial contribution towards the cost of their program. The following is a schedule of fees per unit of competency, charged by Site Skills Training, based on the status of the student and the method of delivery.
See Certificate 3 Guarantee course co-contributions fees here.
ABOUT VET IN SCHOOLS (VETiS) FUNDING:
VETiS qualifications funded by the VET investment budget are listed on the Priority Skills List. These qualifications are delivered by RTOs who have been approved by the department as pre-qualified suppliers (PQS) under the Certificate 3 Guarantee. Schools, in consultation with students and their parents, are able to choose any PQS approved to deliver the eligible qualification.
Students undertaking VETiS, funded by the VET Investment budget, can complete one employment stream qualification at the certificate I or II level.
VETiS qualifications on the Priority Skills List are at the certificate I and II level. Students who wish to access the VET investment budget to undertake a certificate III qualification should do so through a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship (SAT)—funding for a SAT is available under the User Choice program.
Other certificate III qualifications may be delivered and funded outside of a SAT pathway, where an Industry Proposal Funding Submission (DOCX, 284 KB) is submitted by an employer or industry body to support local employment opportunities.

ABOUT USER CHOICE FUNDING:
The User Choice 2017-20 program provides a public funding contribution towards the cost of training and assessment services for eligible Queensland apprentices and trainees.
The program aims to provide funding aligned to the skills needs of industry and respond to changing government priorities.
The three-year policy from 1 July 2017 recognises that employment-based training aligned to skills shortages is a critical priority for the Queensland Government.
