VETiS funding option, Great!

Eligibility to VETiS funding by the Queensland government allows AGI to deliver the program which would have a normal fee of $2310 for NO TRAINING COST.

The no training cost programs are based on VETiS funding eligibility, location and completion of all 15 Certificate II units delivered and assessed by AGI or approved partner provider and VETiS funding claimed by AGI. Programs exclude activity specific optional extras, additional boat diving options or additional transport requirements.


VETiS funding criteria:

Australian/ New Zealand citizen or permanent resident (or on pathway to permanent residency) presently residing in Queensland

  • Enrolled in a Queensland school, grades 10, 11 and 12,
  • Aged 15 years old and over
  • Not completed or presently undertaking a program from the VETiS stream funded list.


Common programs from this list that would make applicants not eligible if the training was conducted and completed by a private RTO (excluding school RTO training) are: Certificate I or II in Tourism, Sport and Recreation, Hospitality or Furniture Making. Eligibility must be confirmed while student is attending school during the school term.

Completed units (if applicable): Some students may have already completed units included in the Certificate, even if completed as part of a fee for service program, then the student already is competent in those units and will not receive funding for units already completed. AGI reserves the right to enrol students who are eligible for all 15 units.

VETiS funding from the Queensland Government is only available for one Certificate II program to eligible students (excluding school RTO delivered programs). Therefore, it is important to make a well-informed decision for the best outcome. Our program is rich in outcomes giving a nationally recognised qualification, real industry experience and license, great self-development opportunities and adventure with friends.

The normal duration of this program is 6 months; however, program lengths will vary to student’s own self-study commitment and training plan arrangements. Most of our programs are run over a year as part of the school curriculum.

The programs consists of training clusters incorporating delivery methods: self-study (online and workbooks), face to face and practical training (skills demonstration). Our course learning content and assessments have been written to facilitate and maximise an activity outcome therefore a number of our units commence and run along with the practical component.

Note: the SCUBA course license and program is not embedded in the Certificate course and is separate coursework.

There are no entry requirements for this qualification, however Scuba stream applicants must complete a dive questionnaire and pending responses, may need to undertake a Scuba dive medical. During the program students will need to demonstrate the ability to swim a set distance and tread water.

You must satisfactorily complete both your knowledge development including face to face and self-paced learning (online and distance) and skill development (activity performance with observations) components of each unit to be deemed competent for the qualification.
