DVA can fund your Qualification

Being competitive in the labour market is a key challenge veterans and injured service people can face during their transition into civilian life. While many skills are obtained during service, many are not recognised in the civilian space. This means your resume may not be considered by employers if you do not possess the right qualifications.

Under DVA funding, Veterans and injured service people can access education as part of their rehabilitation plan. This is because DVA understand that qualifications are key to achieving sustainable employment.

3CIR works in partnership with accredited Registered Training Organisation Asset College (RTO#31718) and can provide educational services eligible for DVA funding.
