Apply for an extension or shortening of the training period

Description

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

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

It is checked whether you achieve the training goal in the specified time.

A shortening is possible if, for example, you have a higher school leaving certificate or already have completed an education. 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 shortening of the training period.

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

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

 

In Saxony-Anhalt, there are no regulations on the crediting of 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.

You must apply for a shortening together with your training company at the responsible body (chamber). You can agree on the shortening before the conclusion of the training contract. In this case, the times and reasons for the shortening will be noted in the training contract. Your training company will submit all necessary documents (e.B copies of certificates) to the competent authority (chamber). You can also apply for the shortening 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 a request for an extension, it is sufficient if you submit the application to the competent authority (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 authority (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.

Please contact the office (chamber) responsible for your respective training course.

In case of shortening:

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

 

In case of renewal

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

In case of shortening:

  • Agreement on shortening:
    • in the training contract or
    • in the amendment contract
  • Application

 

In case of renewal

  • Application with your justification

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

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

Shortening 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 authority (chamber) without your training company.

You may 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 have passed the exam, your training ends automatically.
