Plumbing Apprenticeship Information

Plumbing Apprenticeships in Queensland are maintained and monitored by the Department of Education and Training (DET).

The difference between an apprenticeship and a traineeship is that apprenticeships are for training in skilled trades, such as electrical, plumbing, cabinet-making and automotive. Upon completion, apprentices become a qualified tradesperson while trainees are trained in vocational areas, such as office administration, information technology and tourism. Upon successful completion, a trainee will receive a qualification in their chosen vocational area.
