On probation means you're 'actually undergoing probation' - continuous, right?
This example is given by the Cambridge dictionaries online:
He served a year in prison and was then let out on probation.
It means the probation is finished here?
So, on probation can mean
1) during probation
2) probation completed?

I'm not a teacher yet, but I am studying a Bachelor of Education with an English Literature major at Charles Sturt University, in NSW, Australia.
And see the meaning of probation.
Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
