To apply for an apprenticeship or traineeship at Kangan Institute you need to ensure you meet the following requirements.


  1. Find a job as an apprentice or trainee (our Employment Centre can help you find a job)
  2. Register with an Australian Apprenticeship Support Network (AASN). You and your employer will need to contact an AASN representative, and sign a training agreement.
  3. Nominate Kangan Institute as your Registered Training Organisation (RTO). You and your employer must notify the AASN representative about your choice of training organisation on your registration. The representative will then notify Kangan Institute about your registration.

  5. Once you have registered with an AASN a Kangan Institute representative will be in contact and arrange your training schedule.
