What Are Certificate 3 Guarantee Courses?

The Certificate 3 Guarantee (C3G) is a key initiative under the Queensland Government’s annual vet investment plan. The Certificate 3 Guarantee provides a government subsidy to support eligible individuals to complete their first post-school certificate III level qualification. It also supports Queensland’s Year 12 graduates to transition to employment by providing fee-free training in high priority qualifications.

The Certificate 3 Guarantee gives eligible individuals the opportunity to complete a full certificate III qualification that leads to a job outcome or career advancement. The Queensland Government subsidises the cost of training for eligible students.

Why You Should Be Selective About What Course You Do

Be sure that you don’t get caught up in the excitement of gaining a qualification for a low cost – it is important that you consider and compare your training options and ensure they align with your chosen career pathway. Once the Certificate III course has been completed, you will have used your only Certificate 3 Guarantee subsidy entitlement and will have to self-fund any additional Certificate III courses in the future.
