*Actual credits granted to the student is dependent on the units of competency completed by the student toward the qualification. The SACE Credits range column is based on the range of nominal hours for successful completion of the qualification, as outlined in the Training Package's Implementation and/or Purchasing Guide. The fixed maximum number of SACE credits listed is the maximum number of SACE credits that will be awarded to students for that particular VET qualification. The indicative minimum number of SACE credits is a guide as to the range of credits that may be awarded. This reflects the choice of electives by the RTO, and completion of the qualification may still be able to be achieved with less credits than the indicative minimum value.

The schedule also identifies qualifications that can be undertaken in conjunction with these apprenticeships and traineeships, and these are indicated above with a tick.
