About government-subsidised training

Students may be eligible for government-subsidised training. This is only offered by training providers who have a contract with the Victorian Government to deliver government-subsidised training.

If you're eligible, the government will contribute to the cost of the training.

About pre-apprenticeship courses

This course is available to study as a pre-apprenticeship. A pre-apprenticeship is a great way to get a feel for the industry before committing to an apprenticeship.

Some pre-apprenticeships can help reduce the length of a formal apprenticeship. This only applies to selected courses approved by the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA). To find out if this applies to your pre-apprenticeship contact your training provider.

For more information about pre-apprenticeships, see our Pre-Apprenticeships page.
