Where will I study?

All apprentices and trainees are required to attend and complete a formal qualification training component with a public or private Registered Training Organisation (RTO).

It’s important to discuss your training options with Apprenticeship Support Australia, your employer and potential training providers, as different methods of training will suit different types of apprenticeship or traineeship roles.

Options include:

  • Classroom-based training
  • Flexibly delivered training such as online or internet training tools, combined with instruction delivered using face-to-face, video link or teleconferencing methods
  • Work-based training allowing you to develop the knowledge and skills required as part of normal work with your employer, with guidance and support provided by the training organisation.

Who pays for training?

Training fees will depend on the training organisation you are enrolled with. The payment of your training fees depends on the Industrial Award under which you are paid and your employment agreement. Speak to your employer and training organisation or to Apprenticeships Support Australia to find out more.

You will also receive a lot of training and coaching on the job from your employer and other experienced staff.

When do I qualify?

A nationally-recognised qualification will be issued to you by your RTO at the end of your apprenticeship or traineeship.
