About government-subsidised training

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.
