Eletech is excited to announce that we’ve hired three new first year apprentices..
A big welcome to Isaac, Chris and Ricky!
Apprenticeship: the beginning of a great career
Isaac, Chris and Ricky started their apprenticeships at the start of January, and they’re each working on a separate installation team. Throughout their four year apprenticeship, they will learn how to:
- Work safely in various environments
- Learn about electrical safety
- Develop a team approach to completing tasks
- Install and commission various lifts
- Perform maintenance and mechanical repairs on a lift
- Fault-find a breakdown, including complex microprocessor motor drive problems
It will be an exciting four years full of hard work, challenges, and a lot of learning. Now let’s introduce the boys:
Introducing our newest apprentices
Isaac graduated Kedron State High School in 2017. He signed up for an apprenticeship because he liked the sound of doing electrical work. He chose Eletech by chance after seeing an ad for the position available, and he’s glad he did as he’s loving it!
Chris graduated St Augustine’s College in 2016. He’s been chasing an apprenticeship in the lift Industry since he finished grade 12. The varied nature of work and mechanical side of it appealed to him. After completing a year at university, Chris found an ad for an Eletech apprenticeship online and applied. Chris said he’s found the work to be more physical than expected, but he is greatly enjoying it so far.
Ricky graduated Wavell State High School in 2017. He thought the electrical apprenticeship with Eletech sounded a bit different to a normal electrical apprenticeship, and the opportunity to apply couldn’t be passed up. Ricky has enjoyed learning something new every day and greatly enjoys the challenging nature of the work he’s done so far.
We look forward to seeing these young men progress through their apprenticeships as they become an integral part of the Eletech team.
