CSQ Short Course Program 2018-19
The Short Courses program provides funding to assist with upskilling and cross skilling existing workers in the building and construction industry. The training focuses on the safety, regulatory and licensing requirements of the industry and can provide you with a range of competencies that employers need. And as the program name suggests, the Short Courses are designed to get you up-skilled fast.
CSQ Skills Assessment & Gap Training Program 2018-19
The Skills Assessment & Gap Training program provides funding to assist with up-skilling and cross skilling existing workers in the building and construction industry. The first stage of SAGT will see your worker’s skills and abilities ‘mapped’ against a nationally recognised qualification. They will then go on to undertake gap training required to gain a nationally recognised qualification.

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.
