Undertake training or gain a qualification at a reduced cost
Training Services NSW wants more people to undertake training in areas where skilled workers are needed. To help you do this, the government provides funding for part of your course through the NSW Smart and Skilled funding for eligible individuals.

- 15 years old or over?
- No longer at school?
- Living or working in NSW?
- An Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, Australian permanent humanitarian visa holder or New Zealand citizen?
If you answered ‘Yes’ to all four questions, then you’re eligible to enrol in a government-subsidised course with an approved Smart and Skilled training provider.
The courses available under our Smart & Skilled funding are:
|Traineeship Fees 2016
|Certificate III in Cleaning Operations (CPP30321)

Daniels Associates is required to protect fees that a student pays in advance for nationally recognised training. The requirement protects individuals should Daniels Associates cease to operate and consequently not be able to complete or offer a course of study in which the student has a prepaid enrolment.
To meet this regulation, Daniels Associates will accept payment of not more than fifteen hundred dollars ($1,500) from a student prior to course commencement. Following course commencement, Daniels Associates may require payment of additional fees in advance from the student, but the total prepaid amount must not exceed fifteen hundred dollars ($1,500) at any time.
