Funding information - Victoria

PPTEU Members

Members of the Plumbing and Pipe Trades Employees Union (PPTEU) in Victoria are eligible for fully funded training with CEPUTEC. 

Members must be an up-to-date financial member for at least 12 months to be eligible.

Funded training for Members is provided due to the Training Levy that is mandated in your Enterprise Bargaining Agreement (EBA).

Subsidised training for immediate family members

Immediate family members (wives, husbands, de-facto partners and children) of up-to-date financial members may be eligible for discounted training programs.

For many CEPUTEC courses, this means the family members can participate in a training course for a flat fee of $50.

This option may be selected during the online enrolment process and the member’s membership id must be entered at the time.

For training external to that offered directly by CEPUTEC, the member must contact CEPUTEC for approval prior to the family member enrolling.

For further information, contact the PPTEU or CEPUTEC admin teams.

Industry Association Members

Members of industry associations, the Master Plumbers, the National Fire Industry Association (NFIA) and the Air-conditioning and Mechanical Contractors Association (AMCA) are eligible for subsidised training with CEPUTEC.

Members must be current financial members.

For further information, contact the CEPUTEC admin team.

What is a Unique Student Identifier (USI)?

If you study any Nationally Recognised Training in Australia, you are required to have a USI. Your USI links to an online account that contains all your training records and results (transcripts) that you have completed since 2015.

When applying for a job or enrolling in further study, you will often need to provide your training records and results (transcript). The benefit of the USI is the ability to provide learners with easy access to their training records at any time.

You can access your USI account online from your computer, tablet or smart phone.

If you do not already have a USI, go to on a computer or mobile device.

Note: A USI must be supplied to CEPUTEC during enrolment so that a Nationally Recognised Qualification or Statement of Attainment can be issued to you.
