Training course subsidy
A subsidy payment is available for employing companies (including sole traders).
The subsidy offered is a percentage of the advertised course cost. Courses and training activities currently approved for Keystone funding can be found HERE.
Who is eligible?
An eligible company is an 'employing company' where 90% or more of its work is involved in building and construction work on-site, as defined in Schedule 2 of the Building and Construction Industry Training Fund Act 1990.
An eligible company will hold an Australian Business Number (ABN).
‘Employing companies' include sole traders and eligible host employers, where that host employer organises and pays for training. In some cases, the subsidy will be paid directly to the training provider to facilitate a reduced out of pocket course cost.
Our online system uses Recipient Created Tax Invoices, to make it easier for businesses to process claims for funding.

Employers of companies performing building and construction work but not meeting the 90 per cent requirement may request funding assistance by contacting Keystone.
Employees of joinery operations will be eligible for funding, providing building and construction training packages and courses are being completed.
