Completing your apprenticeship/ traineeship

​Your apprenticeship/traineeship is complete when:

  • you have achieved all the competencies of the structured training
  • your employer has confirmed with the RTO your competence in the workplace
  • your RTO enters the information received from your employer into the apprenticeship database

Only then does the VRQA write to both you and your employer confirming that the apprenticeship is completed.

Trainees will receive confirmation of completion directly from the RTO only.

The letter sent by the VRQA confirming the completed apprenticeship is your evidence of completion. If you need your letter re-sent, call the VRQA on 1300 722 603 10:00 am - 4:30 pm Monday to Friday.
