Smart and Skilled funding
Trans-Plant Training Pty Ltd works hard to ensure that we are offering training and assessment that is value-for-money. We have secured approval as Approved Training Providers for funded courses, in some states of Australia. Funding for each state targets different skills sets that are needed to address skills shortages. Although we are not yet delivering subsidised training and assessment in all states yet, our goal is to offer Government subsidised training and assessment right across Australia!

Your eligibility for a NSW Government subsidised course no longer depends on your previous qualifications:
1.From 2016, all students, regardless of the level of any previous qualifications held, are able to access NSW Government subsidised training up to Certificate III level. This means that even if you have a higher-level qualification you may still be eligible to re-train to enter (or re-enter) the workforce.
2.You can also enrol in subsidised training at Certificate IV, Diploma or Advanced Diploma level, depending on the availability of funding for these courses.
Previous qualifications do not affect eligibility, but may affect the student fee.
Any subsidy granted under the Smart and Skilled Scheme, means that students only pay part of the enrolment fee. The enrolment fee is for the whole qualification, not an annual fee.
