Of the seven phases of training for the CP apprentice, four of them are delivered 'on the job', in the apprentice's place of employment. These phases are 1, 3, 5 and 7.

The even numbered phases (2, 4 and 6) are known as the 'off the job' phases, and are currently delivered by DDLETB (Phase 2), and by the Cork Institute of Techonology (CIT), who deliver phases 4 and 6.
