Do I have to pay fees?

Under the Certificate 3 Guarantee program, the Queensland Government requires the student to pay a student contribution fee as part of their enrollment. For further information on HANMACs fees and charges please visit the fees section of the website or contact HANMAC by phone or email.

I finished year 12 in the last calendar year, do I have to pay fees?

Under the Certificate 3 Guarantee program there is a stipulation which allows for an exemption on student contribution fees for students who successfully completed year 12 in the previous calendar year (2015) and are enrolling into a high priority qualification. To be eligible for this exemption the student must be enrolling in a high priority qualification and must provide evidence of successful completion of year 12 in the last calendar year (2015) at time of enrollment.
