Approved training schemes

​​​​​​​​​​​The VRQA determines which qualifications are available as apprenticeships and traineeships in Victoria. These are called approved training schemes and include terms and conditions, such as:

  • whether a qualification is available as an apprenticeship or traineeship
  • the nominal duration of an apprenticeship or traineeship
  • probationary periods.

Approved training schemes also specify minimum hours for employment and training for apprentices and trainees. For more information, see:

Approved training schemes are published in the Victorian Government Gazette.

We usually update approved training schemes after a new training package has been released. We can also update training schemes to meet industry requests.
