First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Two employees of Belco have been awarded National Training Board certificates of completion after finishing the electricity provider’s apprenticeship programme.

Prior to presentation of the certificates to George Fubler and Stevon Trott by the Department of Workforce Development, Belco said the NTB ensured that they had successfully completed the programme and met the standard of proficiency required. Both men are employed full-time at Belco.

Mr Fubler is a Grade 1 electrical fitter and Mr Trott is a Grade 1 lineman.

The Belco apprenticeship is a four/five-year programme that includes 1½ to 2½ years of overseas schooling, with the remainder of time spent training on the job.

Belco said apprentices are paid a full salary with benefits while studying overseas.

During the programme, apprentices work in assigned departments to complete job cards, which are lists of tasks required to complete their training. The programme is supervised by the DWD.

Noel Cann is the assigned training and assessment officer who met monthly with the apprentices.

After completing apprenticeships, Belco said other apprentices have become electricians, mechanical and/or environmental technicians, power and plant engineers, power system electricians, millwrights (mechanics), welders, and power linemen.
