The apprentices follow a structured training plan and attend college on a day release basis to study for the HNC in Electrical Engineering. Service Manager Jerry Lee said "Training apprentices is great for our business. It allows us to train engineers specifically on our equipment and to our high standards. The investment we make in these lads is worth every penny" The apprentices spend time, throughout their four years of training, working with engineers in each of the disciplines and learn about the mechanical and electrical aspects of our generators. Engineer Colin Scott said "It's great to be able to pass on my experience and knowledge to young guys who have a real thirst for knowledge and genuine interest in what we do"
