Types of courses you may be eligible for

Your eligibility for a government-subsidised Smart and Skilled course depends on your previous qualifications:
All students, regardless of the level of any previous qualifications held, are able to access subsidised Smart and Skilled training up to Certificate III level. This means that even if you have a higher level qualification you may still be eligible to re-train to enter (or re-enter) the workforce.

You can enrol in subsidised training at Certificate IV, Diploma or Advanced Diploma levels, depending on the availability of funding for these courses. Having completed a Certificate IV or higher-level qualification does not affect eligibility, but may affect the student fee.

*This training is subsidised by the NSW Government.
