Student Fee

The ACT Government provides a contribution towards the cost of your training. Students are required to contribute to the cost of their training. The RTO has determined the Tuition Fee and Fee Concession for each of the nominated to deliver qualifications under Skilled Capital.


You may be eligible for a fee concession. Fee Concessions are available to you if, at the start of training, you hold a current and valid:

  • Australian Government Health Care Card; or
  • Australian Government Low Income Health Care Card; or
  • Australian Government Pensioner Concession Card; or
  • Veteran’s Gold Card.

If you are eligible for a concession, you may not have to pay part or all of your student course fee. We may be able to offer you a Fee Concession or fee waiver depending on your circumstances, this includes potentially claiming financial hardship.

At enrolment, ARC Training staff will request documents as part of the process to determine your eligibility for a concession based on the information you have provided.

If you wish to claim a fee waiver due to genuine financial hardship, please inform us at enrolment and you will be given a fee waiver application form to fill out and will be required to provide a form of evidence confirming the hardship.

Completion Payment

Students who successfully complete their qualification are eligible for a completion payment. A completion payment will be paid directly to the student upon completion of the qualification and a survey. The completion payment is $300 for each qualification.

Students will be eligible to receive the completion payment for up to 1 year after successful completion of the qualification, provided up to date email and bank account details are confirmed.

A student is not eligible for a completion payment where more than 50% of the units are completed through Recognition of Prior Learning or Credit Transfer. A significant proportion of units completed through credit transfer may also impact on student eligibility for the completion payment.
