Electrical apprentice Robbie Correll’s commitment to excellence has been recognised at the Murraylands Training and Employment Awards.
Robbie was named Murraylands Apprentice of the Year and also received the Third Year Apprentice Award at an event held last month.
Employed by Class A Energy Solutions, he spends his days installing solar energy systems and says he enjoys being part of the renewables industry and working across the state.
“I actually really like working on the roofs of people’s homes, I don’t mind the height and there are some great views to take in,” he says.
Robbie, who lives in Mt Barker, says his interest in being an electrician began in primary school with a Year 6 electronics project which involved constructing a miniature house with working lights.
“I love making stuff work and I really decided then that I wanted to be an electrician,” he says.
He went to Mount Barker High School because it offered a VET program enabling him to do an introductory course in electrotechnology, which convinced him he was on the right track.
In 2018, Robbie gained his apprenticeship with Class A Energy Solutions through Murraylands Training and Employment and has been nominated for the Apprentice of the Year Award each year since.
Robbie says it was “awesome” to be recognised with two awards at this year’s presentation.
As part of his apprenticeship, he has been studying a Certificate III in Electrotechnology (Electrician) at TAFE SA’s Tonsley Campus.
“I’m more of a practical person but it was good to learn the theory and make sense of it all. The lecturers were really helpful,” he says.
“It was great to build a network, I met a bunch of people and we still talk even though we’re not in class.”
Robbie says communication is a crucial skill for his job.
“Firstly, we’re working with electricity and heights so it’s important to communicate on the worksite but also we need to talk with the customer to ensure we’re delivering what they need and that they understand what we’re doing,” he says.
