For the 2021/2022 ATP year, Apprentices were eligible for short course subsidies, except for high-risk work (HRW).

After consultation with industry and SafeWork SA, it has been recommended that CITB eligible apprentices receive short course subsidies for HRW courses

SafeWork SA believe that the only limitation should be age, therefore if an apprentice meets the age requirements then they are eligible to enrol in the course (eg. Forklift).

Q2. Do you support CITB allowing eligible apprentices (who meet the age requirement) to receive a subsidy for HRW short courses?  *

CITB provide a subsidy for short courses that include both training and assessment.

Currently, CITB does not provide any subsidy for Verification of Competency (VOC) as it is an assessment process rather than a training program.

Q3. Should CITB provide short course subsidies for VOC’s? *

Q4. Does industry require short courses in topics such as:

Understanding ISO9001 *
Understanding ISO4001 The Environmental Standard *
Understanding ISO45001 OHS Management - Occupational Heath & Safety *
Understanding ISO5001 Energy Management *
Addressing disability in design and construction industry *
