We take apprentices first enrollment into apprenticeship (level 4, 100+ credit) course (trade defined by MOE derived occupation). From these apprentices, we calculate the time between their start and end date.

Note this may not be directly comparable to time in training since we include all time between first starting training and ending training. Meaning, if an apprentice takes a break from training to travel overseas, but returns and completes their training, we will include the time they spent overseas.
