About pre-apprenticeship courses

This course is available to study as a pre-apprenticeship. A pre-apprenticeship is a great way to get a feel for the industry before committing to an apprenticeship.

Some pre-apprenticeships can help reduce the length of a formal apprenticeship. This only applies to selected courses approved by the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA). To find out if this applies to your pre-apprenticeship contact your training provider.

For more information about pre-apprenticeships, see our Pre-Apprenticeships page.

The fee ranges shown are indicative only.

The full fee range does not factor in any government subsidies.

The government-subsidised fee range marked with this symbol Government-subsidised training available factors in a Victorian Government subsidy.

The ranges are based on:

  • Estimated tuition fees for the whole of the course with a Victorian Government subsidy 
  • Rates for local students only (not for international)  
  • Available data from the Australian Course Information Register

The fee ranges shown do not factor in concessions or scholarships. They also exclude other fees set by the training provider such as materials, services, and amenities.

About occupations in demand

Occupations in demand are marked with this symbol Occupation in demand. If you see a related job marked with this symbol, it’s identifying a role that is currently, or is at risk of, experiencing a skills shortage.

When an occupation has a skills shortage, it means the chances of getting a job after completing your course could be higher.

The information used to identify occupations in demand is primarily sourced from Higher Education and Skills Group (HESG) in the Department of Education and Training (DET), the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) and Deloitte Access Economics.
