The User Choice 2017-20 program provides a public funding contribution towards the cost of training and assessment for eligible Queensland apprentices and trainees.
The program provides the flexibility for apprentices, trainees and their employers to select a preferred registered training organisation (RTO) from a list of pre-qualified suppliers (PQS) for the delivery of accredited training to meet their specific needs.
WorkSafe Connect currently offers Certificate III Surface Extraction (RII30115) under the User Choice Program and delivers this onsite only to an employer group. The program is generally delivered a 12-24 month timeline.
