Check my eligibility

You may be eligible for government subsidised training based on your employment and training level.

A training provider will confirm your eligibility when you enrol

But you can do a first-check using our Eligibility Calculator.

If you want to study a course that will give you skills employers need, the South Australian Government pays part of your course fees for you. The money goes straight to your training provider, so you can focus on your training. Your eligibility for government subsidised training may be based on your employment status and any training you’ve already completed.
