Should the CSQ funding not cover the full amount of the course, you will be required to contribute towards the remaining course fees. However these fees are not extensive, we encourage you to speak with us today.

Under this program, skills are identified, mapped and gap training is provided in order to provide eligible participants with the nationally recognised qualification.

Workers with significant experience in the civil and general construction industry can undertake a RPL (recognition of prior learning) to ascertain the number of units they require to complete in a gap-training program.
