People look to obtain and/or upgrade skills for many reasons.

In our industries, they are generally secondary school students looking at careers, people looking for career changes and people looking to upgrade their skills.

After completing the appropriate training, you will be able to obtain a nationally recognised qualification and be able to be licensed to do work governed by regulations.

Some qualifications require that you complete an apprenticeship.

An apprenticeship is an agreement between an apprentice, an employer who will help train the apprentice and the Government which will pay for the off-the-job training.

What will an apprentice do?

  • Attend a training college (called a Registered Training Organisation – RTO for short) to learn knowledge and basic skills
  • Work with an employer to develop the basic skills learned at the RTO to the level required by industry
  • On successful completion of the RTO program and time with the employer, get nationally recognised qualifications
  • The apprentice can now become licensed and recognised as a skilled trade worker in their chosen profession
  • The new trade worker can add further training to add higher skills with the potential to increase their income and job satisfaction
