Construction Skills Queensland (CSQ) Subsidised Training

Construction Skills Queensland (CSQ) funding connects you to the latest subsidised training courses, so you can get the skills you need to stay in demand. How does CSQ do this? They are funded through an industry training levy – basically, whenever there's a construction project over a certain size CSQ receive a small percentage of the cost — and they use this money to subsidise your training.

CQUniversity is a proud recipient of Construction Skills (CSQ) funding for Higher Level Skills (HLS) –and for Skills Assessment and Gap Training (SAGT) – general construction for eligible participants in Central Queensland, Mackay and Whitsunday regions*.
