PARTEC campus Mt Gravatt
  • This is a 4 year Apprenticeship, but experienced students can take a "fast-track" program.
  • Training toward the trade qualification involves approximately 20 weeks at college. This is usually covered in one week blocks over the Apprenticeship period to suit employer convenience.
  • When you enter into a Contract of Training (indenture) you need to specify that you want your Apprentice to attend PARTEC for off-the-job training. PARTEC can arrange for assistance to complete all the necessary forms.
  • The cost of the Apprenticeship training at PARTEC is subsidised by the State Government through the User Choice Program. There is an annual tuition fee which the State Government requires to be paid to PARTEC for the balance of the cost. This is between $450 and $550 per year at current rates. Method of payment is negotiable.
