Government-funded training

For more than 20 years, we have assisted organisations to develop customised training solutions to meet the specific needs of their staff.

As a registered training organisation (RTO), ASFA Learning can access a variety of State and Federal Government funding programs that can offset the cost of training. This ensures you have knowledgeable staff qualified at the nationally recognised certificate level, without the heavy price tag.

ASFA offers the following courses that are eligible for funding under the Federal Government’s funded traineeship programs:

  • Certificate III in Financial Services (FNS30111)
  • Certificate III in Customer Contact (BSB30211)
  • Certificate IV in Superannuation (FNS40911).

How do I get started?

To determine eligibility for Federal Government funding, please contact the Australian Apprenticeship Centre (AAC) in your state. These centres are responsible for:

  • determining the eligibility of your trainee for funding
  • signing up trainees and employers to the program
  • arranging funding of incentives.

ASFA government-funded training is open to new employees, including mature-age students. Traineeships currently operate in NSW, QLD, VIC, SA, ACT, WA and TAS (Not for Cert IV level).

For contact details on the AAC in your state, visit the Australian Apprenticeships website.

Once you have contacted the ACC and determined you are eligible for funding, you can download the ASFA Learning Government Funded Training Enrolment Form.
