The User Choice program provides a public funding contribution towards the cost of training and assessment services for eligible Queensland apprentices and trainees.

The program recognises that employment-based training aligned to skills shortages is a critical priority for the Queensland Government. It aims to provide funding aligned to the skills needs of industry and respond to changing government priorities.

These funds reduce the cost of the training that an Australian Apprentice or the employer will have to pay under an Australian Apprenticeship.

The amount of funding and training available under User Choice is determined by the QLD State Government and what their priority group areas are.

Under User Choice arrangements Australian Apprentices and their employers can select the private or public training provider of their choice.

Who can deliver User Choice training?

An RTO wishing to deliver User Choice training must be registered to deliver the qualification. Civil Train QLD has a number of different training packages on scope that are registered under User Choice.
