Instructor aptitude ordinance is the ordinance that has been in force nationwide since 1972 on the necessary professional and work-pedagogical suitability of those who mediate professional training in the commercial sector. The legal basis for the trainer aptitude regulation is the Vocational Training Act. There it is formulated that the trainer should have personal and professional aptitude. A person who has not been legally convicted of a crime against young people or who has violated a provision of the Vocational Training Act is personally suitable.
For professional suitability it is counted that the trainer has the necessary professional skills and knowledge and that he can prove his pedagogical qualification. Evidence of this knowledge must be provided in an oral and written examination. In a transitional period, partial or total exemption from the instructor aptitude test is possible.
