Funding is only provided for eligible workers where the course:
- is provided by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO);
- is accredited under the Australian Qualifications Framework (your RTO can provide advice on this), or is otherwise approved by the Training Fund Authority;
- identifies a training outcome for each participant consistent with the Training Plan;
- teaches a skill listed in the Training Plan (applications for other skills may be individually assessed on merit. A list of currently approved courses is also available on this website);
- provides up-skilling or professional development and does not comprise basic skills training (such as those that fall within a training/apprenticeship contract, for example);
- does not provide product-specific training (training courses must be generic).
A list of RTOs accredited in the ACT and nationally can be found at the National Training Information Service.
Using RTOs and accredited courses means that competencies gained can combine to achieve formally recognised qualifications (certificate, diploma, etc.).
To discuss special training needs for industry or seeking your trade skills to be formally recognised (ACT skills recognition service), contact the ACT Building and Construction Industry Training Council Inc. Alternatively, you may contact us for more information.
