Funding & Fees
The Smart and Skilled funded program is set-up so that all eligible students (subject to criteria found on the Smart and Skilled website) enrolling in a full qualification must incur a student fee for undertaking a course.

Any additional fees will be charged to the student’s employer as per the structure agreed to in the direct negotiations between CTPM and the student’s employer.
