JobTrainer Fund

As part of its economic response to COVID-19, the Australian Government is also now providing low fee training to eligible participants. So in addition, those who enrol during the JobTrainer Enrolment Period of 15th October 2020 to 30 September 2021 (or such earlier time as notified by the Minister), will be offered low fee training if they:

  • Are not employed and not enrolled in a secondary school or
  • Are aged 16 to 24 years and are not enrolled in school or
  • Are a prisoner in a South Australian correctional institution

Concessions and low fee training is calculated at 25 cents per nominal hour. A typical Certificate III in Telecommunications would be calculated at:

$0.25 x 700 = $175.00 (based on 25 cents x 700 nominal hours)

(Note: the exact number of nominal hours will vary based on the electives selected)


The duration of training varies however training is typically completed between 12 months and 36 months.
