Am I eligible for a government-subsidised training place?
In 2014 you are eligible for government-subsidised training with IIT if you are:

  • 20 years and older and ‘upskilling’ by seeking to enrol in a course at a higher level than your existing qualification (please note, you are not eligible if you already hold the same level qualification as the one you want to enrol in, ie already hold a diploma in another field, you are not eligible).

How many courses am I eligible for?

In 2014 you are eligible to begin two government subsidised courses, as long as you are not doing any more than two government subsidised courses at a time. For example, if you are continuing a government subsidised Certificate III in Aged Care from 2013, you can start one more course in 2014 until you finish (or withdraw from) your current course, then you can start a second course in 2014.

For commencements from 12 August 2013 Foundation Skills courses count towards the two course limit. Any IIT full qualifications currently being delivered are able to be enrolled in as a government funded student. *Please note, individual modules or units are not able to be enrolled in as a government funded student, only full qualifications.
