New Ergon Energy apprentices eager to start their courses

TWENTY-THREE people can now happily regard themselves as the newest recruits for Ergon Energy across the central region.

Two new apprentices have been welcomed to the Gladstone ranks and are eager to get stuck into their courses.

"Our latest recruits join Ergon Energy as it maintains a keen focus on operating efficiently to deliver a safe, reliable and affordable electricity supply to customers," chief executive Ian McLeod said.

Brad Neal is enthusiastic to start his power line apprenticeship, while David Dent has gained a systems electrician apprenticeship.

The 59 apprentices across the company were chosen from more than 2330 applicants.

"Our newest recruits will gain skills such as communications technicians, distribution linespersons, systems electricians and transmission linespersons," Mr McLeod said.

"We wish them the best of success as we welcome them into our workforce."

The new intake of male and female apprentices also reflects a broad spectrum and includes indigenous, school leavers and mature-aged applicants.
