Completing an apprenticeship or traineeship

Apprenticeships and traineeships are competency based. They are complete when:

  • your apprentice has achieved all the competencies in their training plan
  • you have confirmed with the registered training organisation (RTO) that your apprentice is competent in the workplace
  • the RTO has entered the information received from you into the apprenticeship database.

Important information: If you employ an apprentice, we will send you written confirmation when the apprenticeship is complete.

If you employ a trainee, the RTO will send you confirmation when the traineeship is complete.

It is possible to complete an apprenticeship early, if you and the RTO both decide that your apprentice is demonstrating all the necessary competencies. Please discuss with your RTO directly.
