Apprentices acquire vital training

Youth & Careers

TWENTY-ONE apprentices graduated at the Works Department’s training depot in Lae after passing the National Trade Testing Board (NATTB) tests last Friday.
They completed heavy equipment fitting (HEF) extension 1-3 block courses and HEF level 1-3 trade test course.
Apprentices were from Curtain Brothers Ltd, Rouna Repairs, Fletcher Construction, New Britain Palm Oil Ltd, PNG Forest Products, Newcrest Mining and Department of Works.
Northern regional works manager Simeon Suagu said the training would help graduates engage in what’s happening on the ground and perform to expectations.
Morobe works manager Samson Apai said: “The paper you get here is your passport that will take you into the future.
“You are destined for this.
“Go out there and do it with courage.
“As you go to the next chapter, you will take risks in your life that will make you strong and successful.
“Do not work for the love of money.
“Work for the love of your job.
“If you look at the value of money, there’ll be no value in the work that you do.”
Apai challenged the graduates to be disciplined.
