I am an employer. Why can't I see my Australian Apprentice in AVETARS?

If you can’t see the Australian Apprentice’s training contract in your portal, there may be duplicate records in AVETARS. This can happen when the employer's trading name has been spelt differently to the training contract.

We can’t remove duplicate employer records but can link the records so you can access the contracts. Please note, we only link duplicate records where the ABN and employer location match.

Please email skills@act.gov.au with the business details.
