How much are the fees?
Most BCITO trade qualifications cost $2000-$4000 in total. These fees are made up of an annual fee for each year you’re in training.
If you are required to attend off-job training, these fees are invoiced separately and are not included in the annual fees stated above.
What the fees cover
The fees cover:
Your workbooks and BCITO learning resources
Your BCITO training advisor's time, which includes:
site visits (four per year)
When do I need to pay?
Fees are charged annually on the day you sign up. If you pay in full by the due date, then we’ll reward you with a discount. Otherwise, you must pay fees by regular instalment via direct debit. This is put in place when you sign your training agreement. Unpaid fees may result in your training agreement being cancelled, or you could be referred to a credit agency for collection.
Who pays what?
It's important to discuss payment of your BCITO fees with your employer before you begin your apprenticeship. Some employers will pay a portion of the fees upfront and have their apprentices pay them back. Others will expect you to pay the fees yourself.
