It is a requirement of the Higher Level Skills Program for Learners to contribute to the cost of their training through a mandatory Co-contribution Fee. The amount of $20.00 (Concessional) and $40.00 (Non-Concessional) is payable on enrolment.

Your contribution fee may be paid by you, your employer, or be paid on your behalf by another Third Party.

Construction Skills Queensland (CSQ) is an independent (non-government) industry-funded body supporting employers, workers, apprentices, trainees and career seekers in the building and construction industry.

As part of this program, all Learners must complete a Learner employment survey within 3 months of completing or discontinuing the qualification. This is a requirement of CSQ funding.

Participants may no longer be eligible for a subsidised training place under the Higher Level Skills Program once they complete a Certificate IV level Qualification or higher. Our team will be able to confirm your eligibility status, speak with them today.
