As part of a traineeship funded through the Queensland User Choice program a student co-contribution fee is payable towards the cost of the training. The student co-contribution fee is a non-government financial contribution towards the cost of the training and assessment services. The student co-contribution fee is calculated by the nominal hours set by your training plan, the nominal hours are then multiplied by $1.60. The $1.60 per nominal hour* fee is set by the Department.

During enrolment you will be given the opportunity to select to have the student co-contribution fee invoiced progressively throughout the traineeship or in full prior to commencement of training. Fees are payable 7 days from the invoice issue date. Fees can be paid by either, EFT, Credit Card or Cheque. For our Fees and Refund Policy please click here.

The funding priority will determine the level of public funds contributed to training regardless of whether the qualification is an apprenticeship or traineeship.
