What can I study through an apprenticeship or traineeship?
Pretty much anything! Across Australia there are more than 500 apprenticeships and traineeships available in a variety of occupations, in traditional trades as well as a diverse range of careers in most sectors of business and industry, including:
|Agriculture, horticulture and related industries||Printing|
|Building and Construction||Manufacturing|
|Business services||Property services|
|Finance services||Public Services|
|Community services and health||Sport and recreation|
|Local government||Transport and distribution|

The course must directly relate to the work you do in your workplace, otherwise it is up to you and your employer to work out which course you would like to undertake.
A few things to keep in mind – the course you decide to study must be approved to be undertaken as an apprenticeship and traineeship in Tasmania and may depend on what training is available in your area too.

The Registered Training Organisation you and your employer want to deliver your training can help you decide.
