The extended final examination was first piloted in five occupations in 2002. It was subsequently included in the updated Berufsbildungsgesetz (BBiG) [Vocational Training Act] in 2005 and in the Handwerksordnung (HwO) [Crafts and Trades Regulation Code] as an alternative to the traditional model of the intermediate and final/journeyman examination. But in how many recognised training occupations is this examination structure now found? And how many newly concluded training contracts in occupations governed by the BBiG/HwO does this figure represent?
