Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

At the end of a recognized vocational training course in the skilled trades, you as a trainee (apprentice) must demonstrate your professional skills in the journeyman's examination.

In order to be admitted to the journeyman's examination, you must

  • have completed the training period prescribed in the training regulations,
  • have passed the prescribed intermediate examination/part 1 of the journeyman's examination and provided proof of training,
  • register for the examination or have your trainer register you for the examination.

In addition, your vocational training relationship must be entered in the apprenticeship register. This does not apply if the entry is missing for a reason for which neither the apprentice nor his/her legal representative is responsible.

Persons who have been trained at a vocational training institution are also admitted if this training course corresponds to vocational training in a recognized training occupation. In the case of appropriate performance, trainees may also be admitted to the final examination before the end of their training period following a hearing.
External candidates and/or candidates without previous vocational training but with sufficient periods of professional activity are admitted in accordance with special regulations.

If the journeyman's examination is carried out in two parts at different times, admission is decided separately in each case.

The chairperson of the examination board decides on admission to the journeyman's examination. If he/she does not consider the admission requirements to be met, the examination board will decide.

A written certificate is issued to the candidate as a result of the examinations.
