Medical Administration Training is a Recognised Training Organisation that delivers a range of accredited qualifications under the Traineeship scheme.

We provide quality and reputable training services that are endorsed by the Australian Skills Quality Authority and provide support and mentoring throughout the training period.

What is a Traineeship

A traineeship is a formal agreement made between the trainee, the employer, and the Supervising Registered Training Organisation (SRTO). All parties entering into the traineeship are required to sign a formal training contract (where the trainee is under the age of 18, a parent or guardian must also sign as a party). A traineeship consists of a combination of training and paid employment, under the National Training Wage.

Please note: Existing Worker traineeships do not affect an employee’s current salary or employment conditions during the course of the traineeship.

What are the benefits of traineeships to an employer?

A Traineeship allows the employee to gain a nationally recognised qualification by combining employment and training.

A traineeship can also be of value to the employer as often trainees are more motivated and invested in their position throughout the traineeship as they gain new skills and put their knowledge into practice.

Businesses may be eligible for a range of financial incentives from the Australian Government when they take on an eligible Australian apprentice or trainee.

Who is eligible for a traineeship?

A trainee must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident and meet basic criteria. The Child Employment Act states that the minimum age for apprentices and trainees is 13 years of age, unless otherwise stated. Contact your Australian Apprenticeship Support Network (AASN) to find out more.
