Certificate 3 Guarantee Funding

The Certificate 3 Guarantee provides eligible individuals with access to a subsidised training place in an Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) certificate III level qualification with a pre-approved registered training organisation (RTO) of their choice — otherwise known as a Skills Assure Supplier.

The government’s aim is to assist working-age Queenslanders without a post-school certificate III or higher-level qualification to complete a nationally recognised certificate III qualification that leads to:

  • ​a job outcome for individuals trying to enter the labour market or their desired industry/career; or
  • advancement in the workplace or career progression for individuals already employed in their preferred industry.

Under the Certificate 3 Guarantee, foundation skills training (i.e. language, literacy and numeracy [LLN] training) and lower-level vocational qualifications are also subsidised in certain limited circumstances, based on an individual’s learning, skilling or support needs, to achieve employment outcomes for students.

Are you Eligible?

To be eligible to enrol in the Certificate 3 Guarantee, prospective students must:

  • be a Queensland resident
  • be aged 15 years or over, and no longer at school (with the exception of VET in Schools students)
  • be an Australian or New Zealand citizen or Australian permanent resident (including humanitarian entrants), or a temporary resident with the necessary visa and work permits on the pathway to permanent residency.
  • not hold, or be enrolled in, a certificate III level or higher qualification (not including qualifications completed at school and foundations skills training

Co-Contribution Fees

Co-contribution is a key principle of the Queensland Government’s VET investment framework, in recognition that the benefits of training are shared between students, colleges and the broader community.
The Queensland Government supports deregulated pricing arrangements, where government determines the level of subsidy available as a public contribution to the cost of training for a qualification, and Ready Health Nursing College determines the level of fees that will apply based on: different delivery modes (such as face-to-face or online), delivery locations,  or other factors such as vocational/work placement or high-cost electives. Ready Health Nursing College may charge a different co-contribution fee for each offering.
The co-contribution fee charged for a qualification or offering represents the total cost to the student and includes any enrolment charges (such as identification card charges), tuition fees, services fees, materials fees and all other costs associated with delivering the training and assessment services and awarding the qualification. This includes costs associated with criminal history checks which may be a prerequisite for vocational placement and employment in certain occupations.

  • current Health Care or Pensioner concession card (with your name on the card)
  • an official form under Commonwealth law confirming your concessional entitlement

Unique Student Identifier (USI)

To study for a nationally recognised qualification at a registered training organisation (RTO), you will need to have a USI number.

What is a USI number?

USI is a unique student identifier number that gives you an online record of your VET training undertaken in Australia.

Your USI:

  • is made up of a combination of 10 numbers and letters
  • gives you access to an account containing your completed training records and results (from 1 January 2015 onwards)
  • will help you provide evidence of your studies when you apply for a job or undertake further study.

If you don’t already have a USI number, you can register for one through the Australian Government website. You can also use the website to find your USI or check to see if you already have one.

Please note that when you register for a USI number, you will also need to give permission for your local records and your USI.

Police Checks

All students must undertake a Federal Police Check at the commencement of their nursing courses.

If the Australian Federal Police (AFP) Certificate, is more than 3 years old, a new (AFP) must be undertaken.

This is an entry requirement. Ready Health Nursing College is registered with Fit2Work Criminal Checks and can assist only to facilitate the process for entry into the work placements without delay at the same cost of the online application. The student must sign for the identity documentation used in the process, which is like the Enrolment information required by the State Funding Bodies. Students must declare any convictions on their criminal record prior to enrolment.

As per the Aged Care Principles, participants may not be allowed to work in the Aged Care Industry if their record contains a conviction for assault or theft, and hence should not enrol for study towards work in this industry unless the record is clear. Hence Nursing Homes offering work placements for students from Ready Health Nursing College have the right to refuse access to a student because of a criminal record.

All work experience facilities require a copy of the AFP Record and students must give Ready Health Nursing College full permission to forward a copy of the AFP Record to their work placement facility.

Ready Health Nursing College has in place a contractual agreement with Fit2Work for application of Police Clearance checks on behalf of student, whereby students pay online for their processing of the Police Check. The 100-point check requires valid identification such as Passport; Medicare; Drivers licence etc. The fee is $55. The payment option is included in the student fee structure.

Immunisations and Vaccinations

Ready Health Nursing College strongly recommends students attend their doctor for advice on getting the following vaccinations prior to work experience as most Aged Care facilities stipulate this requirement for work placement:

Hepatitis A & B, Influenza, Tuberculosis, Tetanus, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, and Varicella. Proof of vaccination is required by the Nursing Homes, prior to work placement.

The Federal Govt is currently reviewing the requirements for the vaccinations against the Corona Virus relevant strains and students must seek their Doctors’ advice for medical suitability, as the mandatory requirements for working with vulnerable clients, and work placements in the Aged Care, Disability and Home and Community sectors are high risk areas. Residents and Disability clients have a right to refuse a care worker into their home if the care worker is not immunised. Evidence of vaccination must be available as required by the Work placements facilities.

Terms and Conditions
Applying for a course at Ready Health Nursing College is only guaranteed once the student has met all eligibility requirements and enrols into course, with all Units selected.

Co-Contribution Fees

Although the course is heavily subsidised by the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training (DESBT) under the Skills Assure Supplier (SAS) Program, a small student contribution fee may be applicable. The tuition fees and applicable charges are required to be paid at enrolment or by the scheduled instalment dates made in agreement with the College on condition that all enrolments contain a scheduled payment plan with a minimum of $100 and max $1000. The student signs for this at Enrolment in the Fee Structure. The student contribution fees are interest free and NO additional account keeping fees, transaction fees or set up fees are incurred.

The payment plan consists of two components:- (a) frequency and (b) instalment amount. This is determined with the student before enrolment and approved by Ready Health Nursing College. Once this has been set, failure to pay fees will incur a late fee cost of 10%. (NB: This late fee has not been charged since February 2020, due to the Covid-19 pandemic and will not be charged at any later date).

Concession card holders (health care card or pension concession card) and Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander persons will have a discounted student contribution fee. For details on course fees view the Student Fee Contribution Calculator for the respective Certificate courses below.

Fee for Service (FFS) fees are for additional goods and services provided to the student (e.g. replacement student ID cards). Students are required to purchase additional materials including uniforms, National Police Checks, Flu Vaccinations, or Textbooks (these are specific requirements of the course not covered by the Govt funding bodies). Certificates are Posted to students (FREE) or students can attend the Graduation Ceremony (OPTIONAL) and collect their Certificates at the Ceremony, where the cost of the Gown Hire is $30.

Ready Health Nursing College may refer outstanding tuition fees to an appropriate debt collection agency in cases where payment has not been received by the relevant due date, which may also result in additional costs.

Students having difficulty in paying fees, or have unattended outstanding fees, should contact the College to discuss their enrollment options and to organize alternative arrangements. For more information on student fees, please view the Ready Health Nursing College Student Fees policy.

Further FEES may be incurred due to loss or default for all students for:
Certificate re-issue: $30

Work Placement

Ready Health Nursing College has contractual agreements with the workplace facilities, for the work experience of the students. Most workplaces prefer students to undertake the 15 days (120 hours) between Monday-Friday for 3 weeks. Ready Health Nursing College will advocate for students who may have childcare or work commitments, to have flexibility on preferred days, evening, some weekend or night shifts, which is very limited and based on the Nursing Home accepting the students when a suitable assessor is on duty to support learning.

Ready Health Nursing College has Public Liability, Professional Indemnity, Student Volunteer, Work Cover and Building Insurances which covers students while in class or on work experience.

Extensive Industry Consultation is undertaken to support students learning with industry tools, forms, practices, terminology, policies and changes.

Students are supported in obtaining their Police checks, vaccination locations, and preparation for the work experience with practice with the WHS equipment, PPE, and infection control procedures in the 4 bed Clinical Lab, in each College. The Assessor from the College expects of the student, that they be punctual and prepared when commencing the shift, be “hands on” and ready. Hence, every effort is made to place students in facilities that are as close to their homes as possible. Ready Health Nursing College checks that a suitable mentor is allocated to the student and works closely with the management to ensure the monitoring and assessing the students learning.

During the lockdown periods, most facilities are closed. However, some facilities have continued to accept our students in the work place, due to their location, screening and high level of training that allowed the student to be a part of the organisation during a time of skill shortage in the workforce, done with continuous monitoring of students by the College.

Duration of the course

The course is considered Full Time. The students attend the face-to-face, classroom-based training for two full days. The 15 work experience days (120 hours), are spread across each of the courses, which has 13 units for the CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support (each in Aged Care, Disability and Home and Community) and 18 units for the CHC43015 Certificate IV in Ageing Support, respectively. The course is designed on nominal hours and by attending the workplace, between class days, students can apply knowledge and skills for each Unit relatively proficiently. This allows students to enrol into a course when they are ready. Ready Health Nursing College assesses the criterion for Recognised Prior Learning and Credit Transfers and the length of the course is supported within this process.

Credit Transfers

The Credit Transfer is the progression of students through qualifications by giving credit for learning outcomes they already have achieved. Credit outcomes may allow for entry into a qualification and/or provide credit towards the qualification. Credit given may reduce the time required for a student to achieve the qualification.

It provides a means for students to gain credit in an AQF qualification on the basis of completed components of another AQF qualification or other formal learning.

The credit transfer process involves:

  • mapping, comparing, and evaluating the extent to which the learning outcome, discipline content and assessment requirements of the individual components of one qualification are equivalent to the learning outcomes, discipline content and assessment requirements of the individual components of another qualification
  • making a judgment about the credit to be assigned between the matched components of the two qualifications. The agreed credit outcomes may include any form of credit: block, specified or unspecified credit.
Credit transfer applied

Ready Health Nursing College is responsible developing credit transfer arrangements for its qualifications on scope with qualifications of other providers. Our decisions ensure that integrity of qualification outcomes is maintained and that there is consistency, fairness, and transparency in the decision-making process. These are well documented and made available to students. Credit transfer may be provided to students on an individual basis or may apply to groups of students, providing they can provide the relevant official evidence. However, the total amount of credit will vary from individual to individual, based on which qualification(s) or combinations of qualification components have been successfully completed.

Credit Transfers can be validated by other RTOs when students enrol there, using the QR Code of the Qualification attained at Ready Health Nursing College.

Likewise, Ready Health Nursing College will validate the authenticity of Units of Competencies attained at other RTOs.

Prior Learning

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment process used by Ready Health Nursing College to evaluate the student’s skills, knowledge and experience gained through working and learning, in Australia or overseas, be it through life experience, work or other activities such as volunteering. We can also provide a credit against units of competency, often shortening the time needed to undertake a qualification.

The four steps involved in receiving a qualification through RPL are:

  • A free, no obligation, RPL skills check provided by an experienced Trainer/ Assessor in consultation with the workplace Skills Certified representative or Manager
  • Compiling and submitting your ‘Experience Portfolio’ to provide relevant documentation such as photos and videos of you on the job, references, previous qualifications, current resume, job description etc. that verifies the competency level being undertaken in the course
  • A qualified Trainer /Assessor from Ready Health Nursing College, will review the evidence and determine if you are competent in the units for that qualification via an RPL assessment
  • If Ready Health Nursing College assesses you as competent in the required units of competency, then those Units or the qualification will be awarded by Ready Health Nursing College as gained though RPL.
