Employers, Apprentices and Trainees take advantage and up-skill with a fully-funded short course or higher level skill!
CSQ funding provides the Queensland building and construction industry with skilling opportunities and insights for a stronger and more sustainable future, so why not take the opportunity to gain additional skills and be recognised for what you do at work every day!
Up-skill your apprentice or if you are an apprentice stand out from the rest with short courses added to your skillset!
If you are completing or have completed an apprenticeship or traineeship you may be eligible to access this funding and further your training in the Civil and Building and Construction industry. Apprentice Advance Plus – Short Course is a great initiative from CSQ, which allows current apprentices and trainees, OR if you have completed within the last year to access short course programs that will extend your skills outside what is within your current training plan.
How does the CSQ apprentice Advance Plus program work?
The CSQ Apprentice Advance Plus – Short Courses Program assists current or recently completed apprentices or trainees in the civil construction and building and construction industries to increase their skills and knowledge with fully-funded short courses. Eligible apprentices and trainees are able to undertake training in the short course programs alongside your apprentice and traineeship training.

- You must be an existing eligible worker in the Civil or Building construction industry who has a one month or more working relationship with their employer OR be an unemployed eligible worker who has been unemployed for a period of not greater than the last 4 years, who would otherwise meet the requirements of an eligible worker. The working relationship can be built up through full-time, part-time or casual employment or engagement as a contract worker.
If yes, can you provide us evidence of employment status? We require a signed letter from an employer on company letterhead for a working relationship of at least one month. As evidence of unemployment within the last 4 years, a copy of a separation certificate or letter of resignation/termination will suffice.
