Training Schemes

​Approved training schemes establish specific industry training package qualifications which are available as apprenticeships and traineeships in Victoria. Approved training schemes determine, among other matters:

  • the nominal duration of the apprenticeship/traineeship
  • any requirements for a probationary period
  • the nature and content of the training scheme
  • the standards of skill and knowledge required to adequately perform the activities or tasks of the vocation to be obtained.

The VRQA is responsible for regulating approved training schemes in Victoria.

Minimum hours requirements for employment and training apply to apprenticeships and traineeships. Further information is available in the VRQA Policy on Minimum Hours Per Week for Employment and Training (doc - 72.5kb).
