New time-saving claim service for On-Job Support Funding
May 2019

CITB’s new claim lodgement service for On-Job Support Funding makes the process faster and easier for Employers and their Apprentices.

Employers
For employers who currently receive CITB On-Job Support, the new claim service requires you to verify tasks performed by each apprentice while working onsite. The tasks are pre-selected according to the type of apprenticeship — for example, carpentry apprentices display a list of core and elective units relevant to the Carpentry qualification. Tasks are easy to verify by clicking ‘yes’ or ‘no’.

Apprentices
The new claim lodgement service eliminates the requirement for apprentices to report using the My Profiling app. This means that apprentices can cease using the app. Electrical apprentices should still continue reporting with e-Profiling as part of their licensing and RTO requirements.

As always, your questions can be directed to our Apprenticeship team on 1800 739 839 or email.
