Student Contribution Fees

During your training you will have fees that can amount to approx. $400 -$600 annually for your apprenticeship. However, Year 12 graduates can access fee-free training in high priority areas if they start training with an approved training provider within a year of leaving school.

To be eligible to access fee-free training, you must satisfy the following requirements:

  • You have completed Year 12 in Queensland and hold a Senior Statement issued by the QCCA or equivalent certificate that confirms you have completed Year 12 in Queensland.
  • You are enrolling and commencing training with an approved training provider by the end of the calendar year following the completion of Year 12
  • You live permanently in Queensland.

As proof of eligibility, please provide a copy of your Senior Statement to MTA Institute or your trainer at sign-up. If you are not eligible for the fee-free training, you may be eligible for other discounts of up to 60%. These will be discussed by your MTA Institute trainer at sign-up.
