Certificate 3 Guarantee

Calibre Training & Development is an approved pre-qualified supplier of the Certificate 3 Guarantee Program.

The Certificate 3 Guarantee supports the Queensland Government's Working Queensland jobs plan. The Certificate 3 Guarantee provides a government subsidy to support eligible individuals to complete their first post-school certificate III qualification. It also supports Queensland's Year 12 graduates to transition to employment by providing fee-free training in high priority qualifications.

What Training is Available?

The Certificate 3 Guarantee is targeted at Certificate III qualifications because they are considered the entry-level qualification most often needed to gain employment in many industry sectors.

What Level of Subsidy is Available?

The investment priority or importance of the training determines the size of the government subsidy. Training in vocational areas that align with important economic and industry skill needs will receive a higher government subsidy. A higher subsidy will also be paid to support participation by concessional students, such as disadvantaged learners, and those undertaking training in remote locations.

Does the Individual Need to Contribute to the Cost of Training?

Given the benefits that accrue to individuals from training, students undertaking Certificate III training and non-concessional students undertaking lower level training, will be required to contribute to the costs of their training through a co-contribution fee.

The fee may be paid on behalf of the student by the employer or a third party, but not by their PQS.
