Victorian Training Guarantee 2012
Complex Training Academy is pleased to announce that in partnership with Higher Education Skills Group - formally Skills Victoria, and the Federal Government it has secured a contract to offer Government Subsidised Training as part of the Victorian Training Guarantee.
The Victorian Training Guarantee is making vocational education and training more accessible to people who do not hold a post-school qualification, or who want to gain a higher level qualification than they already hold. This is a great initiative that will see more training subsidised for more people.
From the 1st of January, 2012
All of Complex Training Academy’s full courses are eligible for Victorian Government Subsided training places. The following categories of participants are eligible as part of this new initiative:
All applicants must meet Australian Citizen / Residency requirements and meet one of the following:
- Australian Citizen
- Australian Permanent Resident (holder of permanent visa)
- holder of a Special Category Visa (sub-class 444, New Zealand Citizen)
- holder of a Temporary Protection Visa
And are any of the following:
- Anyone aged between 15 – 19 years of age (on Jan 1st of current year) can complete any qualification, under the age of 20 year of age,
- Anyone undertaking a Foundation Skills Course,
- Anyone aged 20 years of age and over (on Jan 1st of current year) can complete any qualification as long as it’s above what they already hold (eg. If they hold a Certificate II qualification they can only complete a Certificate III or above qualification)

If you are a registered Job Seeker or Disabled Person attached to an “Employment Service Provider” you can be referred via a ‘Job Seeker Referral Form’ by your consultant to our organisation and if eligible for a ‘Job Seeker Fee Waiver’ you may be able to complete your desired training course fully subsided by the Victorian Training Guarantee. You may also be eligible for this ‘Job Seeker Fee Waiver’ if you are a participant in the Commonwealth Government’s Community Development Employment Program and/or Access Program. Please discuss this with one of our friendly staff.
If you are not a registered Job Seeker or Disabled person attached to an “Employment Service Provider” you may still be eligible for a Tuition Fee Concession if eligible for the Victorian Training Guarantee.
Participants holding a Commonwealth Health Care Card, a Pensioner Concession Card or Veterans Gold Card will be eligible to incur an enrolment fee of between $105 and $120, depending on the qualification undertaken. If you do not hold one of these cards but are eligible for the Victorian Training Guarantee an enrolment fee will still be charged but will be at a higher rate and will be dependent on the qualification undertaken. Please discuss this with one of our friendly staff the applicable tuition fee for your current situation and ask about the process on how to apply.
Once your eligibility for the Victorian Training Guarantee has been assessed and you have completed the enrolment process you will be provided with an acceptance information pack that outlines the course you have chosen in detail. You will receive a Class Schedule, a Student Information Handbook and general information about the course including all the details you need to know about participating in the course, times, dates etc.
