The Vocational Training Act has permitted the inclusion of additional qualifications in training regulations since 2005. Companies are able to use these so-called codified additional qualifications to impart specialisations which extend beyond the minimum standards set out in the training regulations. Relevant additional qualifications have been enacted in 27 training occupations thus far. These are presented in the article on the basis of selected characteristics. They follow two different models. Findings in respect of the deployment of codified additional qualifications indicate low dissemination and use.
