Queensland Certificate 3 Guarantee Program


The Certificate 3 Guarantee supports eligible individuals to complete their first post-school certificate III level qualification and increase their skills to move into employment, re-enter the workforce or advance their career. The program also supports school students to access training and Queensland’s Year 12 graduates to transition to employment by providing fee-free training in high priority qualifications

Under the Certificate 3 Guarantee, the Queensland Government (Department of Education, Training and Employment) provides a subsidy for a range of certificate III level vocational qualifications. Foundation skills training and lower-level vocational qualifications may also be subsidised in certain circumstances.

The program is open to any Queensland resident aged 15 years or over who is no longer at school (with the exception of VET in Schools students) and is an Australian or New Zealand citizen or Australian permanent resident (including humanitarian entrants), or a temporary resident with the necessary visa and work permits on the pathway to permanent residency. Prospective students must not have or be enrolled in a certificate III level or higher qualification, not including qualifications completed at school and foundations skills training

It is important that you choose the right course for you to take full advantage of the program. Students can only access the Certificate 3 Guarantee subsidy once. You can access the Queensland Certificate 3 Guarantee Program Student Fact Sheet here.

As a condition of your enrolment, you will be required to complete a student training and employment survey within three months of finishing or discontinuing your training.
