9. Where an apprentice fails a qualification examination, he shall be entitled to a supplemental examination on a date fixed by the Commission. In such a case, his apprenticeship shall be extended accordingly; a second failure on the supplemental examination shall entail, depending on results, an extension of the number of working hours in the candidate’s apprenticeship, the obligation for him to take a vocational training course or vocational reorientation. The apprentice may sit for another supplemental examination only if he fulfils the conditions imposed.
Any other person shall be entitled to sit for his first supplemental examination upon the expiry of 3 months following failure on the initial examination. That period shall be 6 months for any subsequent supplemental examination.
