About CSQ-Funded Training…

    the construction industry.
  • CSQ-funded training is delivered by a range of selected registered
    training organisations (RTOs) across Queensland.

How many CSQ funded courses can you access?

In this current CSQ funding 2022-24* contract period, an eligible participant will only be eligible to access a total of 8 funded short courses.

There is also a stipulation of how many types of courses or ‘units’ a participant can access:

  • Up to a maximum of 3 HRW units only (e.g. units beginning with CPCC or TLIC)
  • Up to a maximum 3 MPO units only (e.g. machine plant operator units beginning RIIMPO)

A single participant can access other short courses that are listed below, such as Working Safely at Heights or Elevated Work Platform (below 11m) but must not exceed more than 8 units of competency in the 2022-2024 CSQ Short Course Program*.

Please note: It’s important that a single participant does not exceed the maximum number of training units of competency during the 2022-24 CSQ funding period, as the participant (or their employer) will be liable for the full fee incurred for training of any and all extra units of competency above the maximum allowed. 

* The 2022/2023 CSQ short course contract has been extended to 30 September 2024, which means that the 8 maximum allowed units is for training commenced during period 1 October 2022 – 30 September 2024.
