Students must be registered with the Industry Training Authority (ITA) as an Apprentice and have received an ITA Identification number.
To determine whether you qualify for apprenticeship training consult the Industry Training Authority.
New apprentices who have successfully completed an ITA approved training program can apply to the Industry Training Centre for credit towards the work-based and technical training requirements of their apprenticeship. Often, successful completion of a trades program or pre-apprentice program significantly reduces the work-based and/or training hours required for the trade.
