Construction Skills Queensland (CSQ)
CSQ is an independent, not-for-profit, industry-funded body supporting employers, workers, apprentices, trainees and career seekers in the building and construction industry.
For those who permanently work in Queensland in the building and construction industry, there is a CSQ funding available across a number of short courses as well as the Certificate IV in Work Health & Safety qualification.
For an overview of the program and funding amounts, click below.
The key eligibility requirements are:
- Right to work in Australia;
- Permanently work in Queensland; and
- Work in the building and construction industry:
- For the short course programs – this means the participant spends the majority of their time on the building or construction site and ‘on the tools’.
- For the Certificate IV in Work Health & Safety program – eligible participants also include relevant clerical, administrative or professional staff whose employer is part of the building & construction industry.
