Recently TABMA’s recruitment team caught up with Daniel and his host employer, Austim, to talk about his Timber and Composites Machining Apprenticeship.
Dan, who lives in WA, started with TABMA and Austim back in March and every day he has been learning about machinery setup, maintenance and troubleshooting.
Since high school, Dan formed a passion for woodwork and with the skills he picked up from work experience in carpentry and as a diesel mechanic, he knew this apprenticeship would be a great career pathway as a recent school graduate.
Daniel is doing great in his apprenticeship and is excited to start studying next month and will continue to learn and grow his skill set as an apprentice working his way towards becoming a qualified professional in a few years’ time. Great job Daniel and Austim!
