Certificate 3 Guarantee Program

The Certificate 3 Guarantee program supports eligible individuals to complete their first post-school certificate qualification and increase their skills to move into employment, re-enter the workforce or advance their career.
It also supports school students to access training and Queensland’s Year 12 graduates to transition to employment by providing fee-free training in high priority qualifications.
