User Choice Funding

User Choice Funding

The User Choice 2010-2016 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 skill needs of industry and respond to changing government priorities.

The program works in conjunction with the Commonwealth Australian Apprenticeships System, under which apprentices and trainees (also known in some jurisdictions as “Australian Apprentices”) enter into legally binding training contracts with their employers and receive structured training to achieve a nationally recognised qualification.

Eligibility Requirement

Individuals who are 15 years of age or older may be eligible to undertake an apprenticeship or traineeship in most occupations. If you are under 18 years of age at the start date of your apprenticeship or traineeship, your parent or guardian must provide signed consent to the apprenticeship or traineeship, if appropriate, amongst other responsibilities.

Cost of Training:

  • Student Contribution Fees are set by the government
  • Student Contribution Fees are a Participant’s contribution to the cost of tuition.
  • Student Contribution Fees under the User Choice program in 2014 are set at $1.60 per national nominal hour for each Unit of Competency/Module to be calculated at the commencement of the Unit of Competency.
  • Student Contribution Fees are adjusted annually and all PQS will be informed by the Department of any changes to the Student Contribution Fees.

 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.
