Get Started

So you’ve decided you want to expand your knowledge and skills and do some training with us! Well done! Our enrolments team will discuss with you all the required pre-enrolment information, including obtaining your USI (Unique Student Identifier). If you are completing an apprenticeship or traineeship then additional forms must be completed. We will also discuss with you any funding options that are available and all associated costs of doing the course. Only once we have received the signed and completed application for enrolment, with all the verified identification documentation on file and your enrolment fees paid, will you be officially enrolled in the course.

Funding Available

MiHaven Training holds the status of a Skills Assure Supplier (SAS), which signifies our eligibility to provide training and assessment services that are subsidised by the Queensland Government’s Department of Employment, Small Business, and Training (DESBT) through the Vocational Education and Training (VET) Investment budget. Depending on eligibility criteria, tuition fees for qualified students may be partially or fully covered by a subsidy from Queensland (QLD) Funding. Each Funding Contract comes with its specific eligibility requirements. During the enrollment application interview, MiHaven Training will assess whether a student qualifies for funding.

You can find fact sheets related to each funding contract available for download here.


The Certificate 3 Guarantee program supports eligible individuals in successfully achieving their initial post-secondary certificate III-level certification. This initiative aims to enhance their abilities, enabling them to transition into the workforce, rejoin employment, or progress in their professional journey.

Which certifications receive financial support? Through the Certificate 3 Guarantee program, the Queensland Government offers financial assistance for a selection of essential certificate III-level vocational qualifications. In specific situations, foundational skills training and vocational certifications at lower levels may also be eligible for subsidies.

Considering the advantages that training offers to individuals, students engaged in certificate III level training and non-concessional students enrolled in lower-level vocational training are obligated to make a co-contribution towards the expenses associated with their training.


The Skills Checkpoint program, an initiative by the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations (DEWR), aims to assist mature-aged workers in charting a new course forward. Recognising the value that older workers bring to the workforce amid our aging population, the Australian Government pledges support for up to 10,000 individuals annually. This support is geared towards providing Australians, aged 40 or older, with guidance on either transitioning to a new career or receiving upskilling advice for their current roles.

Administered nationally through BUSY At Work, this program is open to both employers and individuals seeking assistance, including career assessment and personalised guidance from a career guidance officer, all at no cost. Additionally, participants have the opportunity to access a co-fund amount of up to $2,200 (GST inclusive) for an eligible training course, facilitating upskilling within their current career or enabling a transition to a new one.


The Higher Level Skills program is designed to help individuals acquire the advanced skills necessary to secure employment in a priority industry, advance their careers, or facilitate their transition to university for further educational pursuits.

Which certifications receive financial support? Qualifications subsidised through this program must be listed on the Priority Skills List and individuals will be required to contribute to the cost of training through a co-contribution fee. 


The User Choice program offers financial support to offset the expenses related to training and assessment services for eligible Queensland Apprentices/Trainees. This initiative acknowledges that job-oriented training, specifically addressing skill shortages, holds significant importance for the Queensland Government. Its objective is to allocate funding in accordance with industry skill demands and adapt to evolving government priorities.

In addition, the Free Apprenticeships program for individuals under the age of 25 provides complete funding coverage for 139 priority apprenticeship and traineeship certifications. These qualifications span various sectors including early childhood, aged care, and disability care.


Some students choose to pursue nationally recognised Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications while still attending school.

VET in Schools encompasses education directly linked to the workforce. These nationally recognised qualifications are designed by industry experts to equip individuals with the necessary knowledge and skills for specific job roles.

VETiS qualifications that receive funding from the VET Investment budget are included in the Priority Skills List. Students who are pursuing VETiS, supported by the VET Investment budget, have the opportunity to attain a certificate I or II level qualification within a specific employment stream. However, students interested in using the VET Investment budget to pursue a certificate III qualification should consider enrolling in a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship (SAT), as funding for SATs is accessible through the User Choice program.

Our Fees


In cases where a course receives partial Government Funding, there is an additional co-contribution fee representing the remaining tuition costs, which must be paid directly to MiHaven Training before the course begins. This co-contribution fee can be covered by the student, the employer, or a third party. Examples of documents that can serve as evidence for reduced co-contribution fees include, but are not limited to, a valid health care card, pension concession card, or a currently valid Veterans Gold Card at the course’s commencement. Moreover, a dependent spouse or dependent child of a cardholder is also eligible for the Fee Concession. Please view our Schedule of Fees (above) for more details. 


Student contribution fees within the current User Choice program are established at $1.60 per nominal hour for each Unit of Competency. These fees may be covered by the employer or a third party on behalf of the student. MiHaven Training is unable to waive these student contribution fees unless an exemption of fees application has been officially approved by the Supervising Registered Training Organisation (SRTO). Upon the completion of each Unit of Competency within the User Choice program, MiHaven Training will issue a monthly invoice to the designated party (student, employer, or third party). If there are any modifications to the units of competency in the training plan, the student contribution fee will be recalculated, and any necessary adjustments must be made by either party.

It’s important to note that school-based apprentices or trainees are exempt from paying the student contribution fee, and employers of school-based students are not required to make payments related to these fees. Please view our Schedule of Fees (above) for more details. 


Material fees cover specific resources that you will need in the course of your study, such as: textbooks, protective clothing, specific tools and other items relevant to your course. For all User Choice funded students, employers are responsible for paying for these fees.

We charge a separate fee for these as you may be able to source these elsewhere, buy them second hand or may already own them. An example of an optional cost is where you request for us provide printed copies of courseware that is made available to you online that you could print yourself. Material fees do not apply to all courses – if it applies this will be specified to you before enrolling. Lost or misplaced resources also incur a replacement fee.

Please view our Schedule of Fees (above) for more details. 


MiHaven Training provides a range of short courses which are delivered face to face in the classroom at the MiHaven Training campus or at suitable locations. These courses may be available as a group booking or individually priced. Please view our Schedule of Fees (above) for more details. 


When individuals can’t access funding to complete their qualifications with MiHaven Training, a fee for service is required. 

Before enrolling, students have the option to discuss a deposit and payment plan arrangement with MiHaven Training. Please note that a deposit is necessary before enrolling and starting your initial class. Please view our Schedule of Fees (above) for more details. 

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is basically a way to figure out how much of what you already know can count towards your course with MiHaven Training. It’s all about checking if your skills, that may have been acquired through formal, non-formal and informal learning—match up with what’s needed for your Vocational Education and Training (VET) accredited course. Take the RPL Quiz below to see if you may qualify for this.
