Training for the majority of jobs involved in the construction, activation, operation and maintenance of the nbn™ network is within the vocational education and training (VET) sector. The VET sector receives most of its funding from Federal and State governments.
nbn is working to reduce or eliminate “out-of-pocket” expenses incurred by individuals and their employers in undertaking nbn approved technical skills training via an nbn training subsidy.
After all VET funding has been received, individuals who are employed by an nbn™ Delivery Partner or subcontractor and who undergo technical skills training at an approved training provider may be eligible for an nbn subsidy.
To be eligible for nbn technical skills training subsidies, individuals must be employed by an nbn™ Delivery Partner or subcontractor*. Please find below a summary view of how this works.
*Individuals may choose to complete technical skills training before they are employed, or at a TAFE or RTO that is not nbn approved. However, in order to be eligible for any technical skills training subsidies from nbn, individuals need to be employed by a Delivery Partner or subcontractor and must complete training through an nbn approved training provider.
