A quick guide to enroling in a traineeship or apprenticeship:

  1. Contact your preferred Australian Apprenticeship Centre (e.g. Busy at Work, MEGT, MRAEL) to sign up. Make sure to select CAECE as the preferred RTO as part of the process. It is important to note that the student has to be signed up with an apprenticeship service prior to enrolment. 
  2. Once the student is signed up, the Australian Apprenticeship Centre will notify us, from there we will proceed with enrolment of the student. We will require a completed enrolment form and accompanying indentification documents provided by the student.
  3. Service may be eligible for government incentives, please discuss with your AAC. Incentives vary depending on age and employment start date.


Please note:



Under the Modern Award changes (2015), the cost of a Traineeship/Apprenticeship is now the responsibility of the employer, not the student. Fee-free if the student completed Year 12 by 31 December the year after graduating (e.g. 2017 graduates have to start by 31 December 2018).
