  • Be an Australian or New Zealand citizen permanently living in Queensland
  • Not hold a certificate III or higher qualification from 1 July 2013. This includes any equivalent certificate III or higher level qualification irrespective of whether the qualification was completed as part of a university degree, apprenticeship or traineeship. However, a certificate level III qualification completed while at secondary school does not exclude you from accessing the Certificate 3 Guarantee.
  • Employment status does not matter.

I am a continuing student; does the Certificate 3 Guarantee affect me?
No, as a continuing student, the previous government funding that you were eligible for at the time of your enrolment is still current.

What if I already have a certificate III or higher level qualification?

Are my licence fees included in the training costs?
