Trade papers

​​​​​​​​​​​​Trade papers are a certificate awarded when you complete an apprenticeship.

They’re used to let employers and customers know:

  • you’ve completed all parts of the apprenticeship
  • you can apply those skills on the job.

Trade papers are being reintroduced in Victoria from 2019. You can apply to get trade papers for free, as long as you haven’t previously been issued trade papers for the completion of that apprenticeship.
