Smile Fitter TRA help

Hi all
Having read many posts on here and i'm still puzzled regarding the TRA,
Im almost ready to send docs off and im looking for some advice before i do.
I completed a formal apprenticeship for which i have signed proof copies and also day release to college for 3 1/2 yrs for which i have various c&g papers,nvq'setc which should account for my 900hrs of training ,but even though they have dates on all following on they dont actually say how many hours i studied for each year but i managed to get a signed declaration from the employer stating that i did day release
What my query is...does the apprenticeship and day release go under formal training on the tra form and what does vocational training mean?
Also anyone who has passed this recently..does it look promising lol
Im sorry to have gone on but just a bit puzzled..if we get pass the TRA then we are using an agent but just have to see if this passes
hope someone can help cheers mark

Hi Mark

We have just passed TRA for a fitter on 17/12/07.

Question 3: tick yes, then was the training undertaken as part of a formal apprenticeship, tick yes then part time study as day release. Fill in section 3 as study/further education i.e. C&G and NVQ. On the original form we put first qualification then put each additional qualification/course on seperate papers.

No:4 Apprenticeship Have you completed an apprenticeship, yes you have so tick. We were then advised to tick verbal as no indentures involved just C&G and ONC etc. Formal Training is the apprenticeship/work experience.

Hope this helps if not pm me.

Good luck Lou xx

I know a few fitters/turners,metal machinst's over here and no one has had any difficulty's passing their TRA.

As far as I know all of them have got their apprenticeship papers..
