Skilled Capital is an ACT Government training initiative funded by the ACT and Australian Governments.
Through the Skilled Capital initiative, you can access government subsidised training from an approved registered training organisation. You may also be eligible to receive a range of support services to assist you to complete your chosen qualification. There is no additional cost for these support services.
Capital Careers is approved by the ACT Government to offer some of our courses under this initiative for eligible students.
As a minimum, a student must be (at the time of enrollment):
- An Australian citizen, Permanent Resident, or New Zealand passport holder resident for more than 6 months, or
- A person who holds a visa that is identified as being eligible (visa types mentioned below), and
- Living or working in the ACT
- At least 15 years of age
- Not enrolled in or attending secondary school or college. Students with an Exemption Certificate are not eligible for Skilled Capital. Students who are undertaking year 10 or year 12 equivalent study in an alternative program are eligible provided they satisfy the remaining eligibility criteria.

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 RPL or credit transfer. A significant proportion of units completed through credit transfer may also impact on student eligibility for the completion payment.
