Depending on the level of your qualification, you may be required to pay a nominal tuition or college fee to your training provider. You may receive a reduction in your fees if you have a Centrelink Health Care card. Speak to your training provider. For most school based apprenticeships and traineeships the government subsidises all the costs so it won’t cost you a thing while at school, however it’s best to check with your training
In Some cases the employer may choose to pay the training fees however this is a decision made by the employer and yourself.
Some other costs you may have to pay include:
Textbooks and equipment
Tools and uniforms
Travel costs to and from the Training Organisation
It may seem quite daunting to face these type of costs however the government has in place initiatives that may help in covering these costs.
