RCR HADEN Rockhampton helped MIGAS Apprentices & Trainees place 131 workers nationally as part of the 100JOBS campaign, offering 17-year-old Darcy Boag a four year Australian Air-conditioning and Refrigeration Apprenticeship.
RCR HADEN Central Queensland Area Manager, Jim Kenny, said businesses should take on Australian Apprentices or Trainees to ensure the trade is strong for years to come.
“As tradespeople we have an important obligation to the future generation, without training there won’t be a sustainable industry,” he said.
Darcy Boag is one of the six apprentices and trainees placed in North Queensland as part of the 100JOBS campaign, which aimed to place 100 apprentices, trainees and labour hire staff between December 1, 2014 and February 28, 2015.
“A lot of people are going through a tough time with employment at the moment, at RCR HADEN I look to keep all of my guys … the latest MIGAS apprentice we had that finished up his training is now working with us full time,” said Mr Kenny.
RCR HADEN Central Queensland currently has five MIGAS apprentices undertaking their training.
