Probationer in 1860?

I just recently came across a document that said "List of Probationers." It was from 1860. I am just curious to know what a probationer was.

Many professions or employees described new entrants, who had not yet passed the necessary exams or trial periods as probationers.

To help further it would be necessary to know more background information, or, possibly see the document in question. Do you know what profession the individual followed ?
