Applications are now open for the latest round of ActewAGL’s electrical line worker apprenticeships, which train workers in the maintenance, construction and emergency repair of electricity distribution networks.
ActewAGL Branch Manager Works Delivery Clinton McAlister said over the years ActewAGL has trained more than 400 apprentices.
“Having a highly skilled team at ActewAGL is the reason we have one of the most reliable energy networks in the country.
“Apprentices receive training and experience in constructing, repairing and maintaining overhead, underground and substation power supply equipment.
Mr McAlister said apprentices rotated through a range of specific work areas and locations to gain a variety of experience and comprehensive training.
“An apprenticeship can be a very rewarding career path, with above-award pay, on the job training, nationally recognised tertiary qualifications and the opportunity to work outdoors in a team environment,” Mr McAlister said.
