Eligibility for the Incentive is subject to completing a Skills Checkpoint Assessment and Career Plan that identifies suitable training opportunities, which you will need to discuss with your Program Provider. Your Skills Checkpoint Career Plan may identify suitable training opportunities that are not offered by us.

Please also note that you or your current employer must match the government contribution, up to the value of $2,200 (GST inclusive).
