Thumbs up I got an Apprenticeship

Thats right, im now an apprentice plumber. Im stoked. Doing it through Group Training Australia Brisbane. They should have a host employer for me within a couple of weeks.

Anyone got any tips for me as a new apprentice? Any apprentices, plumbers, people who have used group training before got any advice?

Cheers

Mick

Re: I got an Apprenticeship

Well done! Hope you enjoy it.

I work for a Building company so I know a fair bit about apprentices. My advice would be to work hard at everything, listen to everything your boss says..but don't take any crap. You will have to do crappy jobs a lot early, but that is the nature of it all. Get through that and keep trying to learn as much as you can.

Re: I got an Apprenticeship

Hope all goes well for you. I had a traineeship through group training and they totally screwed me over. They make out like their there for you incase of problems with the employer etc, but in my situation they did nothing and didnt follow-up with placing me with another employer with 4 weeks to go from completing the 12months.

Not good for me as i was then on the dole with a wedding to pay for and no cert III.

Hope it works out for you!

Pete
