Funding & Pricing

TABMA Training provides government funded programs in Queensland, New Sales Wales and South Australia.  Where a course is not funded in these States or where training is required in other States,  we can provide you with a full qualification price.

Funding arrangements are outlined below.  Please contact us to discuss your training needs and we can review with you your likely eligibility for funding and any concessions which may apply.

Funded courses

Funding is provided by each State Government to enable students access to subsidised training and is generally targeted at those qualifications where there is a skills shortage or where developing those skills would be advantageous to the economy. There are two elements to a qualification being funded by the Government:

  1. TABMA Training must have the qualification on its scope and must have formally applied for the funding available for the course
  2. A student must be eligible for the funding. Eligibility criteria can be different in each State and the requirements may include but are not limited to:
    •  The student must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident
    • The student must live or work in the State which is providing the funding
    •  The student must be 15 years or older and not in full time education.

  • It’s so much easier that I thought it would be – I just signed a piece of paper and TABMA Training took care of everything else.

    Mark Pagram – J.H. Williams, Murwillumbah
  • The training with TABMA Training has been very positive. We have more than half our technical staff enrolled in either Certificate III, IV or Diploma. There have been noticeable improvements to daily work performance and productivity.

    Ross Glennie (Owner) – Trusscorp
  • I found that putting my people through a TABMA Training traineeship is more cost effective than sending the worker off to TAFE. The training being in the workplace means that the trainee is totally focused on their job and it, of course, eliminates travel time. I feel that TABMA Training offers this company a lot more flexibility than other training programs.
