Corey Murrell - Apprentice Maintenance & Diagnostics Engineer

After completing his secondary schooling at Central Southland College, Corey was employed in a variety of jobs before being offered an apprenticeship with Southern Group Training.


Corey has been placed with G.E.M. for his on job practical training.


To complete the Level 4 National Certificate in Maintenance & Diagnostics Engineering Corey must complete a range of unit standards including both theory and practical elements.


Corey’s off job theory training has been provided by the Southern Institute of Technology through his attendance at weekly evening class and a three week block course each year.


Regular attendance at evening class is extremely important as apprentices need to complete the theory component of each unit standard before they can be workplace assessed in the practical component of this qualification.


Establishing and maintaining a good study habit is necessary if apprentices are to complete their qualification in the optimum time frame. Failure to do so can significantly prolong the length of time it takes to complete an apprenticeship.
