The Certificate 3 Guarantee gives eligible Queenslanders access to government subsidised training. This subsidy covers up to and including one post-school certificate level III qualification in priority training areas. The Certificate 3 Guarantee subsidy for a course is paid to the training provider to reduce the cost of the certificate III course to the student. The amount of subsidy provided by the Certificate 3 Guarantee is determined by the Queensland Department of Education and Training based on their assessment of the demand for skilled workers in particular industries.

You are eligible for Certificate 3 Guarantee funding if:

  • You are 15 years of age or older
  • Have finished or left secondary school
  • 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
  • You do not hold or are not currently enrolled in a certificate III or higher level qualification (certificate III qualifications completed at school do not apply)
  • Employment status does not matter, nor is there any minimum education requirement, except the standard entry requirements for the course

Note: Student fees may be paid on behalf of a student by a referring agency such as a JAP or other employment service provider.

It is important that you take the time to consider and compare your training options and costs as a completed Certificate III course will use your Certificate 3 Guarantee subsidy entitlement. The Certificate 3 Guarantee is a Queensland Department of Education and Training initiative.
