The 2017 prices and fees are applicable to new students commencing their training in 2017. These prices and fees will apply throughout 2017.
For students who commenced training in 2015 or 2016 and continue to train in 2017, the 2015/2016 price and fee schedule applies.
Fees listed are for the full qualification. The training provider may spread the fee payable across the duration of the course. All providers will charge the same total student fee.
The total price of a qualification is the amount paid to the training provider. This price is made up of a government subsidy and a student fee.
Providers continue to receive loadings to meet the higher cost of training for disadvantaged students (needs loading for Aboriginal students [15 per cent], students with a disability [15 per cent], long term unemployed [10 per cent]) and students in regional and remote areas (location loading).
A Smart and Skilled provider can claim a maximum of one location loading and one needs loading per student per commencement.
Prices and fees for RPL
Prices will be adjusted for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) or Recognition of Current Competency (RCC) and credit transfer (CT).
Prices and fees calculators are available to Smart and Skilled Providers. They can advise students on fee adjustments due to RPL, RCC and CT.
