The learner tuition fees as published are subject to change given individual circumstances at enrolment. Eligibility for the Skills First Program will be assessed by a member of our enrolment team prior to enrolment.

Fee For Service
Fee for service rates apply to those applicants who do not meet the eligibility for funding under the Skills First Program

We have tried our best to make our rates competitive and do not charge an extra tuition fee, therefore a concession card does not affect any fees or funding.

Kit Cost may vary according to Learner’s requirement and chosen electives.
