Do you have skills and experience but no formal qualification?
CSQ can help you get your existing skills assessed, and then fund your gap training, so you can receive a nationally accredited building and construction qualification.
You may be eligible for the SAGT program if you are:
- An existing worker in the Queensland building and/or civil construction industries
- A career seeker who holds previous experience in the Queensland building and construction industry

Skills Assessment and Gap Training (SAGT)
This program helps construction workers with strong on-the-job experience and trade skills to receive the gap training they need to gain a qualification.
The SAGT program will help you turn your experience into a formal qualification. The program provides funding for those working in the industry – or looking to re-enter – who don’t hold a formal qualification. It allows eligible applicants to get subsidised Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and gap training to receive a nationally recognised Certificate III qualification.
Please note, qualifications awarded under this program in the building trades may not meet the requirements of a QBCC licence.
How the SAGT program works
Most of the SAGT units are achieved through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). You will need to show evidence of your work history and skills that you have performed over time in the workplace to prove you have the necessary skills for each unit. To be eligible for this funding, participants must be able to demonstrate RPL experience in at least 70% of the competencies required by the trade qualification. The remainder of the qualification is then made up by gap training. Our contracted RTOs will assess your existing skills and provide the training to fill any gaps – this is why we call it ‘gap training’.
