Criteria for certification of employers for electrician apprenticeships

This is how a company can apply for certification to train apprentices at the electrician training programmes.

Certification for the electrician training programme

A company certification is based on the jobs offered by the host company and to be certified, the host company must as a minimum employ one qualified person with the same technical training to oversee the training of the apprentice. Read more about the rules governing company certification below.

Rules governing company certification

  • To be certified, a company must have been operating for a minimum of 12 months. The Technical Committee may grant an exemption from this requirement to be decided on a case-by-case basis.
  • In order to obtain certification to train apprentices, the company must have a valid licence or as a minimum one employee who is a trained electrician to oversee the training of the apprentice.
  • The certification to train apprentices applies to a single entity. This means that a company certification applies only to a single P number. Companies consisting of several entities must apply for certification of each of the entities. You can find more information about P numbers at
  • The company’s certificate is valid for as long as the company continuously trains apprentices. If a company has been without an apprentice for a period of two years, the certificate will have to be renewed.
  • When a company changes owners, the company must be certified again, unless the new owner is already certified. At the same time, the new P number must be added to the company’s existing training agreements in an annexe.
  • Training agreements cannot be approved until the company has been certified to train apprentices by the Technical Committee.

A company is certified for the modules matching the jobs offered by the company. As a result of this, some companies can achieve only partial certification.
