Training Benchmarks

If you are a sponsoring business and have been operating in Australia for more than 12 months, you will need to demonstrate that you meet a benchmark of providing training opportunities for Australian citizens or permanent residents.

The amount you are required to commit depends on your annual payroll.

There are two types of training benchmarks, A and B.
Training Benchmark A

To meet training benchmark A, you must contribute equivalent of 2% of your annual payroll in an industry training fund.
Training Benchmark B

To meet training benchmark B, you must spend equivalent of 1% of your annual payroll towards training your Australian citizen or permanent resident employees. This can be internal or external training.
