It is virtually impossible for an employee to claim a deduction against their income for the cost of a course as the expense is not being incurred "wholly, exclusively and necessarily" in the performance of their duties as an employee. If the employer pays the cost either directly or via a salary sacrifice by the employee, then the cost may not be assessable on the employee as a taxable benefit.
