JETCO Training for Employers
What is JETCO?
The Joint Electrical Training Council (JETCO) is CIRTs associated training fund. Employers may be eligible to claim for the cost of training expenses required to maintain and develop the skills of their workforce.
Employers can claim some of the costs involved in maintaining the skills and meeting the training requirements of their workforce.
An employer may claim reimbursements on approved training programs up to the value of one half of the invoiced cost/s for training to a maximum of $600.00 per eligible employee each Financial Year based on the start dates of the courses completed.
An employee will be eligible if they have two monthly contributions into the JETCO training fund in the 6 months prior to the commencement of the training course. Eg; if the last contribution for the employee is for June 2015, training must commence before the end of October 2015.
To be eligible for a JETCO training subsidy, the course completed must be an approved course.
Training courses that are generally considered to be acceptable would be any course relating to the electrical contracting industry.
If you are in any doubt about a specific course you wish to undertake, please contact the JETCO fund administrators prior to enrolling.
Claiming a Subsidy
Once the employees have completed their training, submit a completed claim form, copy of the invoice/receipt for training completed and the details of the employees who have completed the training.
