I am not eligible for a traineeship. Can I still complete the qualification?

If a participant is ineligible for a traineeship due to their employment status (casual, part-time working under 15 hours etc.), they can still complete the course as a Fee for Service Student.

Can I extend by traineeship if I am not able to complete it by the end date?
