Training costs can include course fees, books, equipment and materials, and personal costs such as transport.

Course fees

Training providers must publish and fully inform you about course fees before you enrol in a training course.

The student course fee covers the cost of course delivery, including items that are needed as part of the teaching and assessment.

Additional costs

In some courses, you may have incidental costs for optional items like textbooks, uniforms and other items that become your property. 

Personal costs

As a student, you need to cover food, accommodation, travel, child care and other costs.
