Hours of Employment

Apprentices are required to work a minimum of 7.5 hours per week.

The number of employment hours a week is specific to each student and their commitments. The RTO, employer and student must come to an agreed number of hours.

This option allows the students to receive training for four to five days every couple of months from 8.30 am to 4.30 pm.
