Certificate 3 Guarantee

The Certificate 3 Guarantee program is a Queensland Government subsidised training program that supports eligible individuals to complete their first post-school Certificate III qualification and increase their skills to move into employment, re-enter the workforce or advance their career.

The Queensland Government subsidy means that instead of paying for the full cost of a training course, you will pay a reduced amount to make the training more affordable and accessible.

The RII30115 Certificate III in Surface Extraction Operations training course consists of classroom, workshop and worksite activities that meet national and industry standards. Training is conducted by experienced trainers and focuses on fundamental aspects of working safely in the resources sector.

Prospective students are only eligible for one subsidised training place in the Certificate 3 Guarantee programme and completing a Certificate under this program may affect your eligibility for other subsidised programs.
