If a person is eligible for funding under WorkReady, the South Australian Government will subsidise the costs of their accredited training, although a student contribution fee will be required. Places are strictly limited. The following student contribution fees will apply from the 06/07/18 to 31/12/18 or until places run out. Once funding has run out the fees will be calculated at the Fee-For-Service rate.

Students who hold any of the following concession cards at the time of their enrolment may be eligible to for a concession course fee rather than the standard full course fee:
Please note: Proof of eligibility for concession must be demonstrated
prior to the commencement of training. If the concession is valid for the full enrolment period, then all eligible units commenced within
that period attract the concession rate. If the concession is valid for part of the enrolment period, then only eligible units commenced
prior to the expiry of the concession attract the concession rate.

Credit transfer (sometimes known as advanced standing) is awarded when a student has completed the units required for a qualification at another Registered Training Organisation. This may reduce the amount of time it will take you to gain a qualification, and reduce the overall cost. ACCCO provides credit transfer free of charge. Read more
