Fees / Eligibility

Keeping it Simple

At EGA Learning (RTO # 90433) we like to keep it simple, there are two ways you can enrol in training:

1. Smart and Skilled

The qualification you are seeking to enrol in may be offered through Smart and Skilled. The Smart and Skilled initiative introduces new prices and fee arrangements for government-subsidised courses.

The NSW Government contributes to the cost of each course and the student pays the balance. Fees are for the whole course, rather than year-by-year.

Your choice of training provider doesn't affect the fee you pay for any course. Fee exemptions and concessions are also available for disadvantaged learners. For further information, view fee arrangements under Smart and Skilled.

2. Fee for Service

In the event that Smart and Skilled subsidised funding is unavailable or you are ineligible, EGA Learning (RTO # 90433) can provide a competitive costing for you to consider in order to enrol.

Smart and Skilled Training

Are you Eligible?

Your eligibility for a government-subsidised Smart and Skilled course no longer depends on your previous qualifications:

Certificate III

From 2016, all students, regardless of the level of any previous qualifications held, are able to access subsidised Smart and Skilled training up to Certificate III level. This means that even if you have a higher-level qualification you may still be eligible to re-train to enter (or re-enter) the workforce.

Certificate IV

You can also enrol in subsidised training at Certificate IV, Diploma or Advanced Diploma level, depending on the availability of funding for these courses. Previous qualifications do not affect eligibility, but may affect the student fee.

A Simple Check

To enrol in a Smart and Skilled government-subsidised qualification with EGA Learning (RTO # 90433) you can perform this simple check below:
