Queensland Certificate 3 Guarantee

The Certificate 3 Guarantee allows eligible students to complete their first post-school Certificate III qualification to increase their skills and knowledge allowing them to become more employable, re-enter the workforce or advance in their career.

The Certificate 3 Guarantee also allows year 12 students to progress to employment by providing training on a fee free basis for those qualifications that are deemed high priority.

To be eligible, students must meet the below criteria

Be a Queensland, Australian or New Zealand Resident, or Australian permanent resident (including humanitarian entrants)
Be 15 years or older (except those students participating in VET in Schools)
Temporary residents with necessary visa requirements on the way to permanent residency
Not be enrolled in any Certificate III or higher qualification (excluding those completed at school or as part of foundation skills training)

For more information please visit the QLD Gov website. All students are required to pay an enrolment fee and to complete a student survey as apart of their course.

** Please Note: Participation of the Certificate 3 Guarantee requires you to complete a Post Completion Survey at the end of your course.

Can I access the Certificate 3 Guarantee if I hold an overseas qualification?

In order to access the State Government Funding all students must meet all the eligibility criteria to undertake the government subsidised training.

The pre-qualified supplier must make an informed decision about the overseas qualification and if this you would be able to gain or qualify for your desired employment in the state of Queensland.

The pre-qualified supplier must document their reasons for the evaluation and must be able to present this at time of an audit.

If you have an overseas qualification that is recognised in Australia as meeting the registration or licensing requirements for the occupation then you would be deemed not eligible to access the Certificate 3 Guarantee.

If the you hold an overseas qualification that does not meet Australian Qualifications Framework Standards you may be eligible to access the Certificate 3 Guarantee equivalent qualification or study in a different area if your considering a career change.
