Traineeships can be a useful mechanism to support an organisation’s professional development of new and existing staff. Traineeship funding is not limited by age. However traineeship funding is subject to other eligibility requirements.

Getting Started

If you are considering accessing traineeship funding you should initially consult with the Apprenticeship Centre of your choice. The Apprenticeship Centre will determine eligibility and advise which qualification(s) is available for funding.

Currently depending upon the state or territory in which the potential trainee works and resides the funding may be available for -

  • FNS30415 Certificate III in Mercantile Agents
  • FNS40115 Certificate IV in Credit Management
  • FNS51515  Diploma of Credit Management

Selecting a Training Provider

Once eligibility has been determined you need to select a Registered Training Provider (RTO) to provide the training. AICM Learning Services is well placed to undertake this role have delivered traineeships for over five years.

Eligible participants attract an incentive payment for their employer of up to $4,000.

The minimum completion period is 12 months.

The delivery of a traineeship requires an RTO to do more than just provide training. Trainees must be monitored and require ongoing assessment.

The cost for providing an in house traineeship is available on application however it is recommended that there are a minimum of eight learners.
