CSQ Funding

The Short Courses program provides funding to assist with upskilling and cross skilling existing workers in the building and construction industry. Short Courses are individual competencies and skills sets designed to provide flexible solutions to workers wanting to update their skills and knowledge in specific, targeted areas.

CSQ contributes towards the cost of courses. Funding is paid directly to the contracted Registered Training Organisation as a contribution towards the cost of services to reduce the cost to participants. Participants are expected to contribute towards the cost of training. The RTO will assess participants’ eligibility for funding and will advise you of the costs you will need to meet.

This course is for you if you’re:

  • Already working in the construction industry or looking to re-enter
  • Seeking to increase your knowledge in a specific area or gain a licence
  • Have perhaps been asked by your boss to complete additional training
