Applying for an extension or reduction of the training period

Description

The duration of a recognised training occupation is laid down in the training regulations. In exceptional cases, this fixed duration may be deviated from.

You can apply for an extension or shortening of your training period.

It will be checked whether you achieve the training goal in the given time.

A shortening is possible if, for example, you have a higher school leaving certificate or already have completed training. In addition, you can also shorten the training period if you have already gained professional experience (in part-time jobs). If you have acquired the skills and knowledge elsewhere, you can also apply for a reduction in the training period.

The federal states have different regulations for crediting. If a federal state has not made any legal regulations on this, the competent authority will decide on a case-by-case basis whether your previous vocational training will be credited.

An extension is possible if, for example, you have had extended downtime due to illness.

In Saxony-Anhalt, there are no regulations on the crediting of previous vocational training to the training period. This means that you do not have to meet any specific requirements. It will be decided on a case-by-case basis whether your previous vocational training will be credited.

In case of shortening:

  • You will achieve your training goal before the end of the training period, for example by
    • Previous school education (higher school leaving certificate)
    • Previous (completed) training
    • Professional experience

In case of renewal

  • You do not reach your training goal in the given time, for example due to prolonged illness

In case of shortening:

  • Agreement on reduction:
    • in the apprenticeship contract or
    • in the amendment agreement
  • Application

In case of renewal

  • Application with your justification

You must submit the application for shortening no later than 1 year before the end of the training.

You can apply for an extension at any time during your training.

Contact the body responsible for your particular training course (chamber).

Reduction of training time

You must submit the application together with your training company.

Extension of the training period

You can submit the application to the competent body (chamber) without your training company.

You must apply for a reduction together with your training company at the competent office (chamber). You can agree on the reduction before the apprenticeship contract is concluded. In this case, the periods and reasons for the reduction are noted in the training contract. Your training company will submit all necessary documents (e.g. copies of certificates) to the competent body (chamber). You can also apply for the reduction at a later date after the start of the training. Then you will receive a change contract from your training company.

In the case of an application for an extension, it is sufficient if you submit the application to the competent body (chamber). The training company does not have to submit the application together with you. Inform your training company of your decision as soon as possible. The competent body (chamber) will consult your training company on this.

As soon as your application for extension has been approved, you will receive the extension of your training contract.

You can also be admitted to the examination early. In this case, you do not have to record the shortened training period in the training contract. As soon as you pass the exam, your training ends automatically.
