Apprenticeship: Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician
TAFE/Training Provider: Chisholm Institute of TAFE
Employer: WPJ Electrical Services
AUDIO: Hi I’m Felix. I’m twenty-seven. I’m an apprentice systems electrician working for WPJ Electrical Services.

AUDIO: Before I started my apprenticeship I was actually a chef and I studied to do that, did my apprenticeship and worked in the field for a few years. I think that the trade that I’ve picked, being an electrician, that there is a challenge there and it really was the only trade that I could see that inspired me to do that.

VIDEO: Felix is sitting inside.
AUDIO: The thing I love about my apprenticeship is being out and about and not being stuck in the same place. Being an electrician gives you a great opportunity of being able to meet a lot of great people. I love the problem solving side of my job and you never know what you’re going to walk into any day of the week. One day we can be working in a domestic situation, the next day we’re in a factory or in a Sizzle F working on Carpark lighting so you know? It’s really good to get out there and not be stuck in one place.
VIDEO: Felix climbs a flight of green stairs. He is next on a ladder, fixing some wires in the ceiling.
AUDIO: The structure of my apprenticeship is based over four years. I’m two years into it now and I go to trade school one day a week and I work on the tools four days a week.
AUDIO: The opportunities that I will get at the end of my apprenticeship are vast and broad. You can specialise in a number of different fields.
