Currently, attending the course also comes with a $10,000 incentive, paid to eligible employers who hire you after the training into an apprenticeship or traineeship (courtesy of the Queensland State Governments ‘Skilling Queenslanders for Work’ program) – making you very attractive to potential employers!
