    • workers' compensation

Some training organisations are funded by the Queensland Government to provide training for some apprenticeships and traineeships at a reduced cost. This is referred to as User Choice and more information can be obtained from the Training Queensland website.

You have the option of selecting one of these training organisations to deliver the training for the apprenticeship or traineeship. Information regarding these training organisations is available from the Queensland Training Information Service (QTIS).

Alternatively, you can choose to pay the full fee for training delivered by an organisation that does not have a contract with the department.

The training organisation that you and your apprentice or trainee decides on must advise of any fees to be paid (including student contribution fees which are payable by the apprentice or trainee). You may be required to contribute towards the cost of training where the government's funding contribution does not meet the cost of training offered by the training organisation.

Conquest Communications is funded to provide training at a reduced cost and the current Certificate III Telecommunications qualification student contribution fee can be found here. This is for approved Government Funded Trainees only.

Existing employees undertaking apprenticeships or traineeships may be eligible to receive funded training from those training organisations that have a User Choice funding contract with the department.
