Certificate 3 Guarantee Funding

Certificate 3 Guarantee Funding

A core element of the Queensland Government’s Working Queensland jobs plan is ensuring Queenslanders have access to quality training programs that deliver effective skills to meet employment and business demands. 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.

Eligibility Requirement

To be eligible to enroll in the Certificate 3 Guarantee, prospective students must:

  • be aged 15 years or above and no longer at school (with the exception of VET in School (VETiS) students — see the VETiS fact sheet for more information)
  • permanently reside in Queensland
  • be an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident (includes humanitarian entrant), temporary resident with the necessary visa and work permits on the pathway to permanent residency, or a New Zealand citizen
  • not hold, and not be enrolled in, a certificate III or higher-level qualification, not including qualifications completed at school and foundation skills training

Please note you will no longer be eligible for subsidized training under Certificate 3 Guarantee once you have completed a certificate level III qualification.

Cost of Training

  • Given the increased benefits that you can gain from a Certificate III Guarantee qualification, you are required to contribute to the cost of your training through a student co-contribution fee, payable to the training provider.

The fee may be paid on your behalf by an employer or a third party but cannot be paid by the training provider

Refund Policy

If a refund is requested prior to commencement of the course, a full refund minus the initial non-refundable administration/materials fee will be given. Any request for a refund must be on the Refund form available at the office and included in the student information package.

If a student/client wishes to change enrolment to another course delivered by Affordable Industry Training fees paid (minus the non-refundable portion) are transferable to the new course. A second administration/materials fee will be charged. If the student/client is transferring to a course of the same qualification/level the Administration/material fee will be 50% of the original administration/material fee.

Once training has commenced in the course/competency no refund is available to students who leave prior to finalising the course/competency unless the student/client can provide a medical certificate or show extreme personal hardship. In this case, fees may be refunded on a pro-rata basis, minus the administration/material fee. Refunds are at the discretion of the owner of Affordable Industry Training. However if a student wish to complete a course/competency in a future course, the remainder of the original fee can be credited towards that course, providing the course is within six (6) months of the original course. A student should request an “Application for refund form” from the office.

Should Affordable Industry Training cancel a course, students/clients are entitled to a full refund including administration/materials fee (or pro-rata adjusted refund) or a transfer of funds to another course, or remaining funds credited to another RTO for completion. In this event students/clients will be given their preferred option.

Concessional student status applies when:

  • the student 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
  • the student provides the training provider with an official form under Commonwealth law confirming that the student, his or her partner, or the person of whom the student is a dependant, is entitled to concessions under a health care or pensioner concession card
  • the student is an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander
