Support for retrenched and redundant workers – Rapid Response

Government Funded training for Tasmania to gain nationally recognized qualifications in the Fitness Industry is available through Global Fitness Institute.

The health, safety and wellbeing of Tasmanians is our number one priority as we face the Government Funded Tasmania 2challenge of coronavirus. We also recognise there are significant numbers of Tasmanians now out of work due to the COVID situation and trading restrictions.

The Rapid Response Skills Initiative (RRSI) provides up to $3000 towards the cost of training for people who have lost their jobs because they have been made redundant, the place they worked has closed, or the employer had to let staff go.
