COVID-19 50 per cent unit payment update

As announced as part of the ACT Government’s and Skills Canberra’s response to COVID-19 in the ACT, a 50 per cent unit payment is available to registered training organisations (RTOs) that hold an ACT Government Training Initiative Funding Agreement for units of competency where training has commenced and assessment is unable to be finalised specifically due to COVID-19 workplace access and social distancing policies.

With restrictions easing and the gradual return of workers to their workplaces, it is expected that the volume of 50 per cent unit payment claims will reduce. Please be advised that RTOs may be asked to provide additional information to verify future 50 per cent unit payment claims.

All enquiries can be emailed to Skills Canberra.
