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.
To be eligible for this funding, participants must be able to demonstrate Recognition of Prior Learning (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.
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.
Recognition of Prior Learning
The majority of the units are achieved through RPL. Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is the process of obtaining units of competency or qualifications by providing evidence of work history and skills that you have performed over time in the workplace. RPL applications mean that no training or very little training is required because you can prove your competency by submitting required evidence that indicates that you have the necessary skills that apply to each unit.
This program is called the Skills Assessment and Gap Training (SAGT) program. The skills assessment refers to the RPL component. Where RPL evidence cannot be provided, gap training is then arranged to complete the qualification.
