Training Services Australia has been contracted to offer this qualification via an Existing Worker Traineeship. This is available to existing full or part time employees that are Australian residents and can demonstrate a significant link between their job role or future job role and the qualification (other eligibility criteria may apply). The employer is entitled to claim a payroll tax exemption for the employee for duration of the qualification up to a maximum of 2 years. In WA payroll tax is usually remitted on a monthly basis and is equal to 5.5% of an employee’s gross income including superannuation. This means that if an employee earning $80,000 including superannuation undertook the qualification over 12 months the employer would save $4,400 in payroll tax.
