After registration and the successful completion of the on the job training and the classroom training Level 1 and 2, the candidate is granted a Certificate of Apprenticeship. The apprentice is then able to write the government exam. This is a multiple-choice questionnaire of 125 questions.
The passing mark is 70 percent and the successful candidate obtains a Certificate of Qualification and becomes a journeyperson.
