State Funding - QLD

Certificate 3 Guarantee

The Certificate 3 Guarantee is a key initiative under the Queensland Government’s annual vet investment plan. Funding is provided by Department of Youth Justice, Employment, Small Business and Training. The Certificate 3 Guarantee provides a government subsidy to support eligible individuals to complete their first post-school certificate III level qualification. It also supports Queensland’s Year 12 graduates to transition to employment by providing fee-free training in high priority qualifications.

What is C3G Funding?

And how does it work?

Certificate 3 Guarantee training is subsidised by the Queensland government and is paid to the RTO providing the training. There is a necessary co-contribution fee from the student for enrolment & training.
It is important that you consider and compare your training options and ensure they align with your chosen career pathway. Once the Certificate III course has been completed, you will have used your only Certificate 3 Guarantee subsidy entitlement.

Funding Eligibility

To be eligible for Certificate 3 Guarantee Courses you must meet the following criteria:

  • You are 15 years of age or older.
  • Have finished or left secondary school (with the exception of VET in Schools students).
  • Are a Queensland resident.
  • Australian citizen or Australian permanent resident (including humanitarian entrant) or temporary resident with the necessary visa and work permit on the pathway to permanent residency or a New Zealand citizen.
  • Prospective students must not have or be enrolled in a certificate III level or higher qualification (not including qualifications completed at school and foundation skills training).
  • Employment status does not matter, nor is there any minimum education requirement, except the standard entry requirements for the course.
