Certificate 3 Guarantee

The Certificate 3 Guarantee provides a government subsidy towards the training cost for eligible individuals undertaking their first post-school certificate III qualification.

It also supports school students to access training and Queensland's Year 12 graduates to transition to employment by providing free training in high-priority qualifications.

The intent of the program is to equip individuals with the necessary skills to secure a job or advance their career.

More information about this funding can be found on Department of Employment, Small Business and Training website 


To be eligible to enrol in the Certificate 3 Guarantee, prospective students must:

  • be aged 15 years or older;
  • be no longer at school (with the exception of school students in Years 10, 11, and 12 undertaking a VET in School (VETiS) program — see the VETiS fact sheet for more information);
  • permanently reside in Queensland;
  • be an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident (includes humanitarian entrant), temporary resident with the necessary visa and work permits on the pathway to permanent residency, or a New Zealand citizen; and
  • not hold, and not be enrolled in, a certificate III or higher-level qualification, not including qualifications completed at school and foundation skills training.
