Completion of an apprenticeship/traineeship

All apprenticeships an traineeships are compentency based.  They are complete when:

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

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

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