Brett Hamill – Apprentice Electrical Engineer

Having completed his secondary schooling at James Hargest College Brett successfully applied to undertake the electrical pre apprenticeship course at the Southern Institute of Technology. In 2005 he was offered an apprenticeship with Southern Group Training and is currently on placement with his primary host company, New Zealand Aluminium Smelters Ltd.

While most apprentices spend their apprenticeship with one host company Southern Group Training has the ability to place an apprentice with another host company if the original host has insufficient ongoing work, or is unable to provide training in all the unit standards required to enable the apprentice to complete his qualification.

While NZAS is Brett’s primary host company for his practical on job training, during the course of his apprenticeship Southern Group Training will place Brett with a secondary host company to enable him to complete the full range of commercial and domestic electrical unit standards required to complete his Level 4 National Certificate.
