User Choice (Traineeships)

Students must be a trainee and have signed training contract that has been approved for funding. Trainees must be Australian or New Zealand citizens or Permanent Residents and reside in QLD. There is a limitation of two funding contributions under User Choice funding.
User Choice Co-contribution Fees
As part of the User Choice Program is it a requirement that a co-contribution fee be collected*. This fee may be paid by you or on your behalf by an employer or another third party. User Choice Co-contribution fees are normally invoiced as one payment in the first few months of the traineeship.
Fees under the User Choice program are set at $1.60 per nominal hour for each unit of competency to be calculated at the commencement of the unit of competency.
This means that a qualification with 18 units of competency and a total of 590 nominal hours the co-contribution fees will be:
- $1.60 x 590 hrs = $944
Fees may vary depending on electives chosen, as the nominal hours may be longer or shorter than the other units of competency. Students who are eligible for a concession (40% of full rate) must supply sufficient evidence at enrolment.
