removal of reference to time in apprenticeships,
completion based on achievement of competency units.
“Apprentices be certified as competent by a State or Territory Training Authority without the need to make a special application when they have demonstrated competence to industry standards:

by removing references to fixed duration from awards and legislation in all jurisdictions where such awards prevent early sign off based on competency.”Drivers of Change
