Smart and Skilled

In 2018 CTPM Australasia Pty Ltd (National RTO Code: 91301) was offered and accepted a Smart and Skilled contract to be an approved training provider for the NSW Department of Industry to deliver:

Smart and Skilled Targeted Priorities
Prevocational and Part Qualification Program

Approved Smart and Skilled training providers are contracted to deliver government-subsidised courses, this training is subsidised by the NSW Government.


Smart and Skilled provides eligible students with:

  • an entitlement to government-subsidised training up to and including Certificate III; and
  • government funding for higher-level courses (Certificate IV and above) in targeted priority areas.

Employers and Students can download and take a look at CTPM's Smart and Skilled brochure, CTPM's Smart and Skilled Delivery Guide, or go to the Smart and Skilled website for up-to-date information. Using the Course Finder, they can check their eligibility, find the right Smart and Skilled course, and estimate their student fee.

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. However, under the Smart and Skilled Targeted Priorities Prevocational and Part Qualification Program (enrolment in a single unit of competency), no fee will be charged for training, unless additional support by employer is required.

Any additional support fees will be charged to the client (the student’s employer) as per our normal process, i.e. after training services have been delivered, in arrears. The structure of how the fee will be charged will be negotiated directly by CTPM and the student’s employer.

Notification of Enrolment Process

As a provider under Smart and Skilled, CTPM adheres to the eligibility criteria for students, and must only carry out notifications of enrolment via the Portal in accordance with the Notification of Enrolment Process. This process is carried out simultaneously with CTPM's own enrolment process as detailed in the Student Handbook.
