Check my eligibility

Am I eligible for government subsidised training?

A training provider will confirm your eligibility when you enrol

But you can do a first check using our Eligibility Calculator.

The South Australian Government subsidises vocational education and training (VET) courses so you can get the skills employers want. Your eligibility for government subsidised training is based on your employment status and any training you’ve already completed at first enrolment.
