Certificate 3 Guarantee

Government Funded Training Options

If you are based in Queensland and apply to study a Certificate III level course, you may be eligible to have a significant part of your course fees contributed by the Queensland Government through the Certificate 3 Guarantee program.

The Certificate 3 Guarantee program is funded by the Queensland Government.



Currently, Well Grounded Consultancy is taking enrolments for one Certificate 3 Guarantee course: our BSB30115 Certificate III in Business.

Individual eligibility criteria also apply. The program, as delivered by Well Grounded Consultancy is open to any Queensland resident aged 18 years or over who is no longer at school and is an Australian or New Zealand citizen or Australian permanent resident (including humanitarian entrants), or a temporary resident with the necessary visa and on the pathway to permanent residency.

You must not hold, or be currently enrolled in, a Certificate III or higher level qualification. Qualifications completed at school and foundation skills training don’t count when you are being assessed for eligibility, so it’s OK if you hold one of these certificates.

When you lodge your application to study with Well Grounded Consultancy, you will be asked whether you wish to apply for funding through the Certificate 3 Guarantee program. If you believe that you may be eligible, go ahead and complete this section. We will then assess your eligibility and let you know if you have been accepted.

Program Information

You will be required to make a co-contribution to the cost of your training. This may be paid on your behalf by your employer or a third party, if they agree, however the co-contribution cannot be waived and must be paid. For details of the specific co-contribution required, see the course information elsewhere in this Student Prospectus.

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. You will be required to agree with this condition when you lodge your application for a funded program.
If you complete the program, including completing all assessment and being awarded your qualification, you will no longer be eligible to undertaken further training funded through the Certificate 3 Guarantee program. You may remain eligible for other training programs funded by the Queensland Government.

For more information on the Certificate 3 Guarantee program you can view the Department of Education Student Fact Sheet which is available on the Department of Education website here.
