After completing his secondary schooling at Southland Boys High School Anthony spent a number of years in the workforce in a variety of roles before he was offered an apprenticeship through Southern Group Training.
Anthony must complete a range of unit standards comprising both theory and practical elements to achieve the Level 4 National Certificate in Light Fabrication Engineering.
Anthony’s off job theory training is being provided by S.I.T through his attendance at evening class and through 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 components.
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.
