Frequently Asked Questions

What is JobTrainer?

JobTrainer is an initiative of the Australian Government as part of its economic response to COVID-19. The Australian Government has partnered with state and territory governments, including the Queensland Government to provide free or low-fee training courses through its JobTrainer Fund, supporting job seekers and young people to gain new skills for jobs in demand and helping Queensland recover.

What does it cost to complete a qualification?

  • Courses supported by JobTrainer will either be offered to eligible students fee-free or at a low cost.
  • Lower level qualifications (up to a Certificate III level) will be fully funded by the Queensland Government, with eligible students required to pay no fee.
  • Higher level qualifications (Certificate IV and higher) will be funded at higher concessional subsidies, with eligible students required to pay a co-contribution fee of AUD$56, and concessional students required to pay a co-contribution fee of AUD$28.

Can I enrol in more than one qualification?

Students may only complete one qualification funded under JobTrainer. Students cannot be enrolled in more than one qualification at a time. Students completing a full qualification under JobTrainer will not be eligible for further qualifications.

Prospective students who have previously completed a qualification are still eligible to enrol in a subsidised training place as JobTrainer offers people a chance to retrain and gain new skills and qualifications.

What if I am not eligible for JobTrainer courses?

If you are not eligible for the Job Trainer courses, you may be eligible for other programs that have been subsidised by the Queensland Government, such as the Certificate 3 Guarantee and Higher Level Skills Program.
