Government-Funded Courses Australia

Get funding from the Australian government to complete your studies at little to no cost. They are now offering huge discounts to students studying Level 3 Certificates to help them get into employment and gain new skills. Study business or health at the College of Health and Fitness and you could be paying exceptionally low fees. To find out if you might qualify for this assistance, keep reading.

What Is the Cert 3 Guarantee?

The Certificate 3 Guarantee is designed to help you increase your skills to improve your employability. Become a student and get a higher level qualification to add to your CV as well as hands-on skills you will use in the workplace. 

Those who are eligible can use this guarantee to undertake their first Certificate 3 qualification after leaving school. Year 12 graduates may attain subsidised training for qualifications deemed as high priority. Those who are still at school may even be able to benefit from the Certificate 3 Guarantee as well.

Are you eligible for government funded courses? Here are the main eligibility criteria:

  • 15 years +
  • Resident of Queensland
  • No certificate III or higher qualification
  • Be an Australian citizen or New Zealand Citizen or permanent resident of Australia 

Whether you’re hoping to advance your career, re-enter the workforce, or gain employment, this could be the way to do it.

Cert III Fitness

Certificate III in Fitness is one of the courses that are government funded that we offer.

Certificate III in Fitness is a nationally recognised qualification that allows you to become a fitness instructor. You will learn to work in the fitness industry, instruct fitness classes, and learn about anatomy. Many people enjoy taking this course to be taught hands-on, practical skills that they will use in their day-to-day lives.

If you’re interested in becoming a gym instructor, group exercise instructor, or aqua exercise instructor, this is the certificate that will help you get there. Gyms are continually looking for graduates with industry skills, so this qualification can make you highly employable.

While you can study online, this course requires you to undertake work placements in gyms or fitness facilities. It is the perfect blend of learning theory online and getting into the gym to learn practical skills. 

Use Certificate III in Fitness as a stepping-stone on the path to becoming a personal trainer. If you’re passionate about fitness and want to make a career out of it, you can’t go wrong with this qualification.

Cert III Business

The second certificate we offer that entitles approved students to the Certificate 3 Guarantee is Certificate III in Business

This qualification is the ideal way to launch your career in business. Get an education that will help you to get an excellent job once you graduate. You can even study this certificate while you’re still attending school. By the time you leave school, you will not only have completed year 12 but have an additional qualification to your name.

The skills you will learn in Certificate 3 in Business can help you in positions such as office assistant, administration officer, and customer service. Show employers your dedication to working in business and that you are ready to enter the workforce.

Through this certificate, you will learn many skills that will be useful in a business setting. These skills include working with spreadsheets, creating business documents, and organising schedules. You will also learn to maintain financial records, deal with customer complaints, and provide a service to customers.

This course is an excellent starting point if you would like to undertake further study to become a project manager or own your own business. Continue on to study a level 4 certificate and perhaps a Diploma.

Applying for the Certificate 3 Guarantee

The first thing you will need to do is select the course you are going to study. Choose the qualification are you most passionate about to get started in a career you enjoy. 

To find more information about the Certificate 3 Guarantee, what it covers, and potential careers, head to the Queensland Skills Gateway.

When you enrol, one of the conditions is that you must answer a survey within three months of course completion.

​If you choose us as your provider, we only charge a minimal co-contribution fee to eligible students undertaking a certificate through the Certificate 3 Guarantee. It will cost you just $150 unless you attain a concession, in which case it is $100.

Studying at the College of Health and Fitness

As long as you complete your course materials and assessments on time, you can do this whenever you like.
