Prices | State Funded Training - Student Fee Quotation
Vocational Education Training (VET) for building and construction is subsidised through various government funding programs. The funding available is different in each state and territory. In most cases, students are required to contribute in some part to the cost of their training. Your student fees will vary, depending on your work experience, training background and which funding program you might qualify for.

When you apply for enrolment with MIBT, the background information you provide is submitted to the relevant State funding body and a quote is then issued.

Your quote depends on whether you have received training funding previously, as well as the number of units where skills training is required, versus the number of units where you have indicated that RPL, or Credit Transfer might be granted.

The MIBT pricing table shows the cost for full qualification training for all units, as well as RPL being granted for all units. This price may vary if you require gap training for some units. The quoted student contribution will simply be adjusted to cover the training for those units.

As a general guide, to qualify for subsidised training you need to be:
  • 15 years old or over;
  • no longer at school;
