Who delivers the training?
CITB Endorsed Training Providers (ETPs) deliver the training directly.
How much does CITB subsidise per course?
CITB subsidise a minimum of 60% of the course fee (depending on the cost by each training provider).
The Board will regularly review funding allocations to ensure we promote and adequately subsidise priority training for the industry.
How much funding I can receive?
With an approved CITB number, you can access up to $3,000 worth of subsidies each financial year.
What if the training doesn’t go ahead?
We understand that circumstances change, and you might not proceed with approved training, or the course / activity might be cancelled.
If that is the case, the training provider you enrolled with can remove your claim from our system, and the subsidy will return to your CITB account. You can check the balance of your account at MyCITB.
