How do I enrol?
What support is available?
AWDI Training is committed to ensuring you receive training, assessment and support services that meet your individual needs. To achieve this, we need to know what your needs are.
If at any point throughout your course you require any assistance or support please discuss these needs with AWDI staff and we will do our best to help. If you have any special needs, including language and literacy, learning, mobility, visual impairment or hearing please notify staff as soon as possible, preferably at the start of your course, to allow us to cater to your needs if possible.
Information you provide in relation to your needs will remain confidential and only be used to support you.
Is government funding available?
AWDI courses are, in general, funded by the student or their employer (fee for service), however, we are proud to be a Queensland state Government approved Skills Assure Supplier and are able to offer some of our training courses, to eligible applicants that is subsidised by the Qld Government’s Department of Education, Small Business and Training (DESBT).
Eligibility criteria are as follows.
- be a Queensland resident.
- be aged 15 years or over, and no longer at school (with the exception of VET in Schools students).
- be an Australian or New Zealand citizen or Australian permanent resident (including humanitarian entrants), or a temporary resident with the necessary visa and work permits on the pathway to permanent residency.
- not hold, or be enrolled in, a certificate III level or higher qualification (not including qualifications completed at school and foundations skills training).
Please note that AWDI does not accept applicants for security training who are under 18 years as a security license will not be issued to any person under the age of 18 years in Qld and it would be unethical of us to do so.
What is the Certificate 3 Guarentee?
The Certificate 3 Guarantee supports eligible individuals to complete their first post-school certificate III level qualification and increase their skills to move into employment, re-enter the workforce or advance their career.
The program also supports school students to access training and Queensland’s Year 12 graduates to transition to employment.
More information can be accessed via the Queensland Government’s Certificate 3 Guarantee Student Fact Sheet.
