Further study opportunities:

As some of the off-the-job training is covered in the qualification, it is possible to achieve a Certificate III of Trade Studies in shorter time, providing the on-the-job competencies are met to the employer's satisfaction.

Successful completion of the pre-apprenticeship qualification may exempt you from approximately one third of off-the-job apprenticeship subjects, depending on the career path you choose.

Additional subjects can be studied to add to qualifications, enhancing job prospects and employment opportunities.
