Getting started

Apprenticeships and traineeships are a great way to build your career. Gain a recognised qualification while earning money and learning the job.

Unique student identifier

You'll need a USI to do a nationally-recognised vocational education and training (VET) course in Australia.

Find a course

There are a variety of tools you can use to find the right course to suit you.

How much will your course cost

Through the Smart and Skilled program, the NSW Government will subsidise some of the cost of your training.

What to expect

Your first day on the job as an apprentice or trainee can be a daunting experience. You’ll have to get used to a fixed routine, arrive at work on time and take breaks when you’re told to.

Recognition for prior learning and credit transfer

You may be able to finish your apprenticeship or traineeship early if your training organisation and employer agree you meet industry standards.
