Red tape reduction

CBS is now receiving apprenticeship information from Trainee and Apprenticeship Services . This means apprentices who commence an apprenticeship, and require a licence, no longer need to contact CBS and lodge an application, as they will automatically receive an apprentice licence card from CBS.

In addition, on completion of an apprenticeship, CBS will electronically send a personalised pre-filled application form, which will ensure a faster and more efficient way for an apprentice to apply and receive their trade licence.

To enable consumers and employers to easily identify apprentices, the issuing of a new look apprentice card has commenced. The new look cards have a yellow background, the word apprentice clearly marked and specify the type of work that can be performed by the apprentice.
