With an apprenticeship, you earn while you learn.

You receive on-the-job training and formal study with a Registered Training Organisation (RTO). Your new skills and experience will be all you need to build a career in rail.

Apprenticeships are available in trades, including:

  • telecommunications
  • mechanical engineering
  • metal fabrication
  • electrical

Anyone of working age who is eligible to work in Australia or New Zealand can start an apprenticeship. It usually takes 3 to 4 years to complete. After this you receive a nationally recognised qualification.

It’s the most amazing career that I’ve chosen.

I couldn’t imagine working anywhere else. I would always work in rail.
