CONSTRUCTION TRAINING FUND

Eligibility for Construction Training Fund Direct Indenture Grants, Supplementary Skills/OH&S Program subsidies and additional benefits is dependent on an individual’s or company’s ability to demonstrate primary and substantial direct involvement in Western Australia’s construction industry, specifically in on-site construction, installation and fabrication activity.

 

  • Financial rebate is eligible for successful students/applicants who meet the CTF requirements.
  • The subsidy to eligible students/applicants is $31 per hour multiplied by the training hours or 70% of the total course fee (whichever is lower).
  • Interested students/applicants will need to fill out Saferight’s CTF Application Form and pay the “Gap Payment” prior to booking a course with us.
  • Saferight would like to thank CTF for funding support for construction industry workers.

Subsidies are available to reduce training costs, making it easier for eligible businesses and employees to access the training they need when they need it.
