“Queensland Government Subsidy” means subsidy from the Department of Education and Training.

  • This trade Apprenticeship is new, approved by the State Government in February 2003.
  • It is a 3 year Apprenticeship, but experienced students can take a “fast-track” program.
  • Training requires attendance at PARTEC for one day every second week.
  • If the apprentice already has some skills in the industry, the PARTEC Institute can assess these, so that Apprenticeship time is reduced.
  • PARTEC can assist employers with Trade Recognition applications, or requests to the State Government to vary the required tradesman to apprentice ratio because this is a new trade.
  • The cost of the Apprenticeship training is subsidised by the State Government through the User Choice Program. There is an annual tuition fee which the State Government requires to be paid to PARTEC for the balance of the cost. This is between $350 and $450 per year at current rates. Method of payment is negotiable.
