From 2015, Smart and Skilled introduced new prices and fee arrangements for government-subsidised courses. The NSW Government contributes to the cost of each course and the student pays the balance. Fees are for the whole course, rather than year-by-year. Your choice of training provider does not affect the fee you pay for any course. Fee exemptions and concessions are also available for disadvantaged learners.
To check the student fee for the course you can use the Estimate your fee calculator on the ‘Find a Course’ page of the Smart and Skilled website
