Certificate 3 Guarantee Program

ATI are pleased to announce that we can offer Certificate 3 Guarantee Government Funding to eligible Queensland residents from 1st July 2021 – 30th June 2022. Certificate III qualifications are targeted as they are considered the entry-level qualification most often needed to gain employment in many industry sectors. We have a range of different courses to choose from, and if you meet the eligibility criteria, you can do a Certificate III qualification from just $13*.

The Queensland Government subsidises the cost of undertaking an approved qualification, however all learners must contribute by paying a co-contribution fee.
