Generally, the duration of an apprenticeship is a minimum of 4 years. The apprenticeship system is a modular standards-based system generally comprising of 7 alternating phases of on-the-job and off-the-job training and development. These alternating phases of training consist of 3 off-the-job and 4 on-the-job phases. The duration of the 3 off-the-job training phases does not normally exceed 40 weeks.

The off-the-job phases are delivered by a FÁS Training Centre, an Institute of Technology or another approved training provider. The key factor in delivery of an off-the-job training phase is that it is delivered in a single training environment to ensure the integration of practical training with the necessary theoretical and personal skills.

The apprenticeship cycle is deemed to be complete when an apprentice has served the minimum timeframe from the date of registration and has successfully completed all of the alternating on-the-job and off-the-job phases of their apprenticeship.
