Major is excited to have signed their first apprentice Nick Brown with Wood for the new Certificate III in Electrotechnology.

Wood is a global service provider delivering comprehensive services to customers across the complete life cycle of assets. From working across a range of energy, process and utility markets, Wood has a long history providing maintenance and project services across 60 countries.

Wood were pleased to give Nick the opportunity to commence his electrical apprenticeship, working at an oil and gas site in Brisbane which the company have a long standing contract delivering maintenance and project services.

Sasha Carter from Wood People and Organisation Business Partner, has expressed their excitement to watch Nick grow and develop over the next few years.

Nick has said that electronics and how things worked have always been an interest of his. With a background in a number of different trade industries, Nick found himself wanting to branch out of residential trades and head into a more industrial workforce. In doing so Nick was pleased when he managed to get his foot in originally starting with the warehousing team with Wood.

Initially being employed as a store person, Nick’s outstanding work ethic and can do attitude did not go unnoticed. When aware of Nick’s goal and passion in the electrical industry, the decision was made to sign him into the electrical apprenticeship.

“I am a very technically minded person and enjoy problem solving, brain work, as well as having great manual handling skills. I feel Electrotechnology is a mixture of both, and I love the constant challenge”, Nick said.

“The electrical industry is rapidly developing and increasingly technology-based, there will always be something new to learn. I get satisfaction out of the constant challenge and enjoy learning new things every day. My future goals are to succeed as a technician in the electrical industry, and by completing my Instrumentation and Control specialty trade it could take me into various industries such as petrochemical, mining, food, manufacturing, and many more. I feel like this apprenticeship has given me the best opportunity to help me achieve my goal”

Major and Wood are excited to follow Nick’s journey throughout his apprenticeship and can’t wait to see this passionate individual grow and develop over the coming years.
