Course Fees

Each individual student will undergo an assessment to determine any eligible funding and will be supplied with essential information regarding the basic cost of the training and what that cost covers.

Hammond Institute would consider each case individually and inform each student before and at pre-training review of any additional costs related to the qualification that the student wants to undertake.

* To receive a Victorian Government subsidy you must meet the Skills First eligibility criteria and be able to provide evidence to support you meeting this criteria.
** If you are a Victorian Government subsidised student, you may be entitled to a concession on your tuition fee if you meet additional eligibility criteria. If you are studying in a Diploma or above qualification you are not eligible to have a concession applied to your tuition fees. Under the Indigenous Completions Initiative, Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander students pay only the concession tuition fee (20% of the tuition fee for the course) for government subsidised training at all qualification levels (including at Diploma and above).
These course fees are up to date at time of publication, but may be subject to change with regard to Victoria and Commonwealth funding.
*** Issue of First Aid Certificate fees only apply when First Aid unit is part of the your qualification. If students are paying full fees for the First Aid course then they don’t have to pay First Aid Certificate fees.
