Have your apprenticeship contract registered


This list is kept by the bodies responsible for training (e.g. Chamber of Industry and Commerce, Chamber of Crafts). It contains all recognised training occupations and sets out all the essential contents of the vocational training contract.

After concluding the contract between the contracting parties, you submit an application for registration to the regionally competent authority. The competent authority verifies the legality of the contract and then confirms the registration of the vocational training relationship.

The vocational training contract must contain certain minimum information for this purpose.

  • Names and addresses of the contracting parties
  • Aim of the training, as well as factual and temporal structure of the training
  • Start and duration of training
  • Duration of the probationary period (minimum one month and maximum four months)
  • Place of education
  • Training measures outside the company
  • Payment and amount of training allowance
  • Duration of regular working hours
  • Duration of leave
  • Conditions under which the contract can be terminated
  • Other agreements
  • Signatures of all contracting parties

When registering the training relationship, a shortened training period can be agreed if previous vocational training such as vocational school or a basic vocational training year has been completed. The exact regulations for this depend on your federal state and can be obtained from the competent authority.

If the trainee is not yet of legal age at the time of conclusion of the contract, the consent of the legal representative must be obtained for the conclusion of the contract. In principle, both parents are entitled to represent the child jointly, in exceptional cases one parent or a guardian.

  • Entry in the register requires that the vocational training contract complies with the Vocational Training Act and the training regulations.
  • It can only be trained in recognised training occupations. The exact name of the training occupation is entered, if necessary with a specialization.
  • The training staff and the training centre must be personally and professionally suitable.
  • If previous vocational training is taken into account: previous vocational training recognised in the respective federal state
  • In the case of minors: According to the Youth Employment Protection Act, a young person may only be employed if he or she has been examined by a doctor within the last 14 months and the trainer has a certificate issued by this doctor.
  • Copy of the contract or copy
  • A complete factual and chronological breakdown in accordance with the training regulations
  • In the case of shortened training period: copies of the relevant documents (e.g. school reports)
  • In the case of trainees who are not yet of legal age at the beginning of the training: Copy of the medical certificate of the initial examination

The registration is subject to a fee for the training company, not for the trainee. The registration fee is based on the respective fee schedules of the regionally competent authorities.

The vocational training contract must be notified immediately after the conclusion of the contract, but at the latest before the start of the vocational training.

If the documents are complete, the contracting parties will receive a confirmation of registration within four weeks.

Contact the competent chamber. This can be, for example:

  • the Chamber of Crafts for vocational training in occupations of the Crafts Code,
  • the Chamber of Industry and Commerce for vocational training in non-craft trades,
  • the Chamber of Agriculture for vocational training in agricultural and rural housekeeping professions,
  • the Chamber of Lawyers, Patent Attorneys and Notaries as well as the Notary Fund for the Vocational Training of Specialists in the Administration of Justice,
  • the Chamber of Auditors and Tax Advisors for the vocational training of specialists in the field of auditing and tax consulting,
  • the Chamber of Doctors, Dentists, Veterinarians and Pharmacists for the vocational training of specialists in the field of health professions.
  • Forms: Application for registration
  • Online procedure possible: no
  • Written form required: yes
  • Personal appearance required: no

The regionally responsible authority will make all forms available to you as a download on the website or support you in the use of online procedures.
