Apprenticeship or Traineeship Nominal Term

The nominal term of an apprenticeship or traineeship is specified in the training contract but as all apprenticeships and traineeships are competency based the actual completion date may be earlier or later than the expected completion date. 

The nominal term of an apprenticeship is generally four years. This includes from two to three years of formal training delivered by a registered training organisation, usually either one day per week or in blocks of several days during the year. The final year is usually spent full-time on the job. 

Traineeships generally range from six months to three years. In some industries part time traineeships with proportionally longer training terms are available. 

The term of the training contract can be varied to include recognition of current skills or qualifications or extended if more time is required to learn and practice skills. Contact your local Training Adviser at Training Services NSW for more information by calling 13 28 11.
