Apprenticeship training consists of basic training and on-the-job-training (OJT)/practical training at the workplace.

The duration of basic training is 1/5th to 1/4th of the overall duration of apprenticeship training. The remaining period will be utilized for the on-the-job-training component.

Basic training can be done in Basic Training Centre (BTC) which can be set up by the industry/employer where on-the-job-training is to be given provided the industry/employer has the required facilities/infrastructure for providing basic training. All such BTCs will have to go through a verification process before being designated as a BTC.

It can also be provided in government or private industrial training institutes ITIs provided they have spare seats (within overall affiliation) for running basic training. Spare shifts may also be used for basic training. In case these institutes have the required capacity to conduct basic training, they will be designated as BTCs. It can also be imparted in BTCs set up/supported by Industry clusters.

Any individual, who has completed 14 years of age, is physically fit and having minimum educational qualifications prescribed for a trade can undergo apprenticeship training.
