The dates listed above are training start dates. MTA apprentices spend an initial eight weeks of training, and while they can be placed with a host during this time, these first few weeks are important for them to learn the first set of skills they will need to prepare them well for a career in the industry.

As we head into 2019, the MTA has been reflecting on a great year which has seen a lot of hard work in relation to continuous improvement and reviewing and updating our training. Our apprentice training satisfaction survey earlier in the year showed an overwhelming 93.3% of apprentices are satisfied with trainer quality, a terrific achievement.
