The Trial to extend VET FEE-HELP (VFH) to specified Certificate IV qualifications commenced in January 2014 in South Australia, Queensland, Western Australia and Victoria.

The Trial only allows access to VET FEE-HELP for state/territory subsidised students in certain specified Certificate IV qualifications. 

The Trial will run until 30 December 2016.

Your organisation can participate if:

The eligible qualifications and providers have been nominated by the respective state and territory jurisdictions. VET FEE-HELP is available for students who are enrolled in a subsidised place in a current or superseded (or replacement) nominated qualification if they meet eligibility requirements.
