User Choice 2010 - 2015 pricing
The User Choice price represents the level of public funding the government contributes towards the total cost of training for apprentices and trainees.
Other contributions by industry, employers, apprentices and trainees may be required.
Information regarding qualifications and prices under the User Choice 2010 - 2015 program is available at the User Choice 2010 - 2015 documents page.
User Choice 2010 - 2015 qualifications and prices will be available on the Queensland Training Information Service (QTIS) system from 1 July 2010.
Some qualifications, such as those considered as thin markets, are managed under special arrangements by the Department. Only Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) who hold Pre-qualified Supplier (PQS) status and are specifically authorised by the Department can deliver publicly-funded training for these qualifications.
Information regarding restricted qualifications and their special pricing arrangements under the User Choice 2010 - 2015 program is available at the User Choice 2010 - 2015 documents page.
Training delivered in country, remote, Cape York and Torres Strait regions of the state will attract a location loading in addition to the government contribution. A full list of locations and the relevant loadings is available at the User Choice 2010 - 2015 documents page.
To be eligible to claim the Cape York and Torres Strait loadings, training and assessment services must not only be delivered in the Cape York or Torres Strait region, but provided to participants that reside in the Cape York or Torres Strait region - as encapsulated by the 4871, 4873, 4874, 4875, 4876 and 4895 postcodes areas only.
Enterprise-specific Registered Training Organisations (ESRTOs) and National Registered Training Organisations (NRTOs)
Under the User Choice 2006 - 2010 program, organisations referred to as ESRTOs and NRTOs received a different level of funding than other RTOs. All training organisations now have the same classification. The Department has removed ESRTO and NRTO status under the User Choice 2010 - 2015 program.
