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. Under the Certificate 3 Guarantee, the Queensland Government provides a subsidy for a range of Certificate III level qualifications.
Are you eligible?
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 (including humanitarian entrants), or a temporary resident with the necessary visa and on the pathway to permanent residency. Prospective students must not hold, and not be enrolled in, a certificate III level or higher qualification (not including qualifications completed at school and foundation skills training).
