User Choice


What is the User Choice?

Through the User Choice program, the government contributes towards the cost of training for eligible Queensland apprentices and trainees.

Instead of paying for the full cost of training, apprentices or trainees and their employers will pay a reduced amount.

The program provides the flexibility for apprentices, trainees and their employers to select a government-approved registered training organisation (RTO or training provider) to provide the training.

Am I Eligible To Participate?

To be eligible to receive subsidised training under the User Choice program you must:

  • Be an Australian or New Zealand citizen or Australian permanent resident, or a temporary resident with an eligible visa subclass*
  • Permanently reside in Queensland
  • Be employed in an approved apprenticeship or traineeship
  • Have entered a training contract for a qualification funded by the government
  • Have selected a government-approved training provider
