Major is a proud recipient of Construction Skills Queensland (CSQ) funding.

If you’re considering upskilling in construction, you may be able to receive support from CSQ funding. Where CSQ funding doesn’t cover the full cost of the program, you will be required to contribute towards the remaining course fees.

Funding is available from the 1st October & we are taking applications now.
