Abbot Point Operations (APO) has appointed three apprentices to join its world class local team in 2022.

APO General Manager – Port Operations Allan Brown said two mechanical and one electrical apprenticeships were offered under the company’s industry-leading training program.

“We’re thrilled to be able to offer this opportunity to those in our local community who are interested in learning a trade,” Mr Brown said.

“The successful applicants will undertake a best practice learning program with a mix of on and offsite training opportunities to develop their technical skills.

“They will be a part of a world-class local team that prioritises the values of safety, community, and that has just celebrated a year of record performance.”

Qualified electrician, and 2019 APO apprenticeship graduate, Lachlan Mee said the program was the perfect start to his career.

“It was amazing to get to work with skilled and experienced tradespeople who take such pride in what they do,” he said.

“Not only did I learn new skills and gain a nationally recognised qualification, but I became part of a tightknit and dynamic team and made a lot of great mates along the way.

“My apprenticeship with APO was a great opportunity.”

The successful candidates have already joined the team and are making themselves at home among the Abbot Point Operations team.
