Construction Skills Queensland (CSQ) Funding

Construction Skills Queensland (CSQ) Funding

As a Construction Skills Queensland (CSQ) registered training supplier, we provide training that is supported by CSQ funding

Construction Skills Queensland (CSQ) is an independent, not-for-profit, industry-funded body supporting employers, workers, apprentices, trainees and career seekers in the building and construction industry.

CSQ provides funding to reduce the financial obstacle to training, making upskilling an affordable option for many more individuals in the construction industry.

CSQ contributes towards the cost of courses to reduce the cost to participants. CSQ funding is paid directly to the contracted RTO, generally between 75% and 100% of course costs.

If you are currently working in the Queensland building and construction industry or if you are an unemployed eligible worker,  you may be eligible for CSQ funded training to advance or expand your skills under one of the CSQ programs listed below:

  • • Short course program
  • • Skills Assessment and Gap Training Program
  • • Higher Qualifications Program


  • Short course program

    The Short Courses program provides funding to assist with upskilling and cross skilling existing and unemployed eligible workers in the building and construction industry. Short Courses are individual competencies and skills sets designed to provide flexible solutions to workers wanting to update their skills and knowledge in specific, targeted areas.
