Having completed his secondary schooling at St Peter’s College Bryce successfully applied to, and completed, the electrical pre apprenticeship course at the Southern Institute of Technology. In late 2002 Bryce was offered an apprenticeship with Southern Group Training and placed with Rayonier MDF where he had been placed for his day per week work experience.
To complete the Level 4 National Certificate in Electrical Engineering Bryce had to complete a range of unit standards comprising both theory and practical elements. Bryce’s off job theory training has been provided by S.I.T through his attendance at evening class and a two week block course each year.
While Rayonier’s were Bryce’s primary host company, during the course of his apprenticeship Southern Group Training has placed Bryce with several secondary host companies to enable him to complete the full range of domestic and commercial electrical unit standards required to complete his Level 4 National Certificate.
The diversity of practical work and steady progress through his theory work has provided Bryce with a good foundation of knowledge, skills and experience to build upon as he enters the workforce as a fully qualified electrician.
