Apprentice training costs – textbooks

Conditions and entitlements for apprentices vary from award to award.

Many awards say that employers are required to reimburse apprentices for the costs of prescribed textbooks.

The registered training organisation will decide what textbooks are required for a course or unit. It could include things like workbooks, as well as actual textbooks.

Check the award to see what applies in each industry.
