Apprenticeship training is a course of training in any industry or establishment. Apprenticeship training consists of basic training and on-the-job-training (OJT)/practical training at workplace. Basic training can be done in Basic Training Centre (BTC) which can be set up by the industry/employer where on-the-job-training is to be given, provided the industry/employer has the required facilities/infrastructure for providing basic training. All such BTCs will have to go through a verification process before being designated as a BTC.

Spare shifts may also be used for basic training. In case these institutes have the required capacity to conduct basic training, they will be designated as BTCs.
