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. You must:
• be a Queensland resident
• be aged 15 years or over, and no longer at school (with the exception of VET in Schools
students) (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).
• 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).
