About this Funding – Higher Qualifications


As a Construction Skills Queensland (CSQ) registered training supplier, we provide training that is supported by CSQ funding.

The CSQ Higher Qualifications program helps existing, eligible or unemployed workers in the building and construction industry to gain new skills and knowledge to progress their career.

Construction Skills Queensland is an independent, not-for-profit, industry funded body supporting employers, workers, apprentices, trainees and career seekers in the building and construction industry.

CSQ provides funding to reduce the financial obstacle to training, making upskilling an affordable option for many more individuals in the construction industry.

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

CSQ contributes towards the cost of courses to reduce the cost to participants. CSQ funding is paid directly to the contracted RTO, generally between 75% and 100% of course costs.
