They may have responsibility for supervision of volunteers or other staff.

- aged 15 years or older;

If you are not a resident of NSW or working within NSW, you have the option of paying the fee-for-service course fee.
Eligibility for Smart and Skilled – NSW government subsidised training – is available to humanitarian visa holders, and has been extended to individuals who hold a bridging visa, temporary humanitarian stay visa or temporary humanitarian concern visa commencing training on or after 1 January 2017.
How the fees are applied
When you enrol in either Fee for Service training or government subsidised training, the fee you are charged is for the whole qualification. This means you’ll know the total cost of your course before you start.
The student fees and applicable charges are required to be paid, at enrolment or by scheduled instalment date/s, either by yourself (the student enrolled), the nominated ‘third party’ on behalf of yourself (for example, your employer), or as identified within a contract for delivery of AUSTRALIAN GLOBAL COLLEGE training.
The fee you pay, the fee exemption or Smart & Skilled Fee-Free Scholarship you receive, only covers your first attempt at your course, and the first attempt at any unit of competency within your course. If you want to repeat a unit of competency you should discuss this with Administration staff as soon as possible.
