Costs

In Queensland, apprenticeship and traineeship training and assessment is funded by the Queensland Government under the User Choice program which is administered by the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training.

Apprentices and trainees can only receive one government contribution for a User Choice funded qualification at any single point in time, i.e. a student is not funded to undertake two apprenticeship or traineeships at the same time. In addition, apprentices and trainees including school-based apprentices and trainees (SATs), can only receive a maximum of two government funding contributions under the current User Choice program.

More information on the Queensland Government funding rules, fees and fee concessions is available in the Blue Dog Training Student Handbook.
