Eye In The Sky said:Certain trades/classficiations, such as Legal Officer, may have more specific timelines. But it sounds like the VIE for Legal Officer is 7 years. I am not sure if you are able to request a shorter VIE, but I've never heard of a VIE of 1 - 2 years. In the past, there were 3 years BEs (Basic Engagements) but that has now been changed to the VIEs described above.
It would likely be 1-2 years before he's qualified to work anywhere, so VIE of 7 likely reflects the reality of 5 years of actual trade work, with 2 years in training.
