Greg Brown is an outstanding apprentice who has the ability to go far in his chosen career path of engineering. He has both the academic and practical ability as well as being an extremely personable young man. After leaving Verdon College Greg spent some time at private college before he evaluated the various career training options in engineering and chose the apprenticeship pathway for the valuable practical skills and knowledge it would provide. It is Greg’s intention to complete an engineering degree in the future.

Greg was a diligent student during his pre trade engineering course at the Southern Institute of Technology and, as a result, was offered an apprenticeship with Southern Group Training which placed him with McLeay Precision Engineering.
