CSQ Funded Skills Assessment & Gap Training

If you already have the skills and experience in a trade but don’t have the official qualification/s, it can be difficult to spend the money required to be assessed and recognised officially as being competent. The Skills Assessment & Gap Training (SAGT) program is a CSQ initiative which seeks to bridge this gap bv supplying funding to Registered Training Organisations as a contribution towards the cost of this program. The funding is available to eligible participants who seek to gain recognition of their prior learning and experience within the Building and Construction Industry.
