We collect a training levy on all building and construction projects in WA valued at more than $20,000.
Construction Training Fund then return this levy to the industry via training subsidies, programs and grants. These initiatives help reduce the cost of employing apprentices and trainees and offset the cost of mid-career retraining and upskilling.
About the levy
The levy applies to all residential, commercial, and civil engineering projects, including construction projects in the resources sector. The project owner must pay the levy before construction commences.
The levy is calculated at 0.2% of the estimated value of construction. You can find the guidelines about where the levy applies in the CTF Levy and Disbursement Guide.
How to pay the levy
You can pay the levy via the CTF Portal button on our home page. Some local governments also accept levy payments as part of an application for a building permit.
We have detailed guides outlining the information you need before using the CTF Portal to make a levy payment. If you are a first-time user, we recommend you read these before using the portal.
Where a project is valued at $500 million or more, project owners can pay the levy in instalments. You can find out more about how to apply to pay the levy by instalment here.
