UNDERSTANDING OUR FEES
Scope of our fees
ALTI’s Fees and Charges Policy, is written in accordance with the Department of Training and Workforce Development Fees and Charges Policy (DTWD). Our Fees and Charges Policy is only applicable for the year it was created, irrespective of the date of enrolment in the course. As such, our current fees are only for 2022, anything outside this date may incur an additional fee.
As the Lower Fees, Local Skills subsidy has been implemented by the West Australian government, they will determine the length of time the subsidy is active.
What is the Lower Fees, Local Skills program?
Lower Fees, Local Skills is a Skills Ready program created by the West Australian government to help Western Australia’s economy grow and diversify. They have invested in training for skills and jobs that are, or will be, in high demand, by offering a subsidy. ALTI’s accredited certificate courses are available at half price under the Lower Fees, Local Skills subsidy. We have also added new fee-free accredited skill sets to our offerings, in order to encourage more West Australians to upskill in infection control and tasks when delivering care in a COVID-19 environment.
