Government-funded courses in Western Australia  

What is Government Funding?  

The Australian Government provides high-skill training and skill development to Australians who sit at the forefront of government responsibility. The Australian work crew must remain upskilled and future-proof with certificates and diplomas across every industry area.

As an outcome, the Australian Government has ample funding options to incentivise and enable students to participate in subsidised training and courses. The Government covers not only a substantial portion of the course but also the training costs for selected  courses.

The government funding schemes available are: 

  • Smart and Skilled (NSW)
  • Certificate 3 Guarantee (QLD)

Eligibility for Government Funding  

Government Funded courses in Perth are available to Australian citizens or permanent residents over 15 years old. You should be either an Australian Citizen, a Permanent resident that has a permanent visa or a New Zealand Passport holder living in Australia for over six months. Funding is mainly aimed at job seekers but is also available for employed, as evident by the programs available. In some cases, the entire course fees are covered, some are subsidised, and others only require an enrolment fee. 

It depends on the course, the qualification level and the provider. Requirements may differ from state to state, so it’s best to contact the relevant authorities to find out about the differences in SA Funding courses, Queensland funding courses etc.

Electrical training courses covered (Government Funded courses WA.)  

The Government of Australia is committed to training people to reach their full potential and make the most of the wide range of learning opportunities available. 

The Government-subsidised training and incentives in training are based on industry suggestions to provide the people with the required skills they need to have meaningful and sustainable employment of their choice. Government funding is initiated to minimise skills shortages, focus on training for jobs in demand in critical industries, and increase the workforce in Australia with formal qualifications after school. 

The Government has emphasised on upskilling the Australian workforce, resulting in a comprehensive framework of funding schemes and incentive opportunities. As a result, many upskilled participants are provided incentives by the Government to undertake training and/or find that their electrical training courses are heavily subsidised.
