Support for apprentices and trainees
An apprenticeship or traineeship allows you to mix work and training for a nationally recognised qualification. Learn while you earn, gain a stronger understanding of the construction industry and become a qualified professional in as little as two to four years of full-time work.

If you successfully complete an approved short course by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) listed under our Upskilling and Short Course Funding Program, you may be eligible for a rebate of up to 80% of the total cost.
Eligible short courses typically fall under the following categories:
✓ Construction skills
✓ Industry skills
✓ Software skills
✓ Occupational licensing
✓ Higher qualifications
✓ Occupational health and safety
In some cases, we offer financial assistance to apprentices who live in regional WA and need to travel to attend scheduled off-the-job training with an RTO. Our accommodation allowance program help reduces training costs, with up to $1,400 assistance annually.
Are you involved in the re-building works of communities impacted by the Wooroloo bushfires and Cyclone Seroja? You could receive a grant of up to $2,000 as an apprentice working in these areas, which can also be claimed to cover travel and accommodation costs.
