The Remington Group recently announced that their third batch of apprentices under their Apprenticeship Program are now recognized apprentices in the country.
Last week saw five of their Service Technicians from their business units Remington Technology, FX Business Centre and BizPrint & Scan achieved a milestone in their careers by signing their Apprenticeship contract with the National Trade and Testing Board (NATTB).
The Remington Group Apprenticeship Program is facilitated in collaboration with the Department of Labour and Industrial Relations (DLIR) through the National Apprenticeship Trade and Testing Board (NATTB).
Quality Assurance Accreditation Officer at NATTB, William Tiru, expressed his concern that there was a decline in the past year with organizations registering new apprentices and he is now pleased that the Remington Group has continued with this program.
The certification program is offered by the Remington Group through its different business units and is a rigorous process that ensures the apprentices get the appropriate training and hands-on experience necessary to succeed in their chosen field.
Remington Group CEO Mr. Peter Goodwin said that it was thrilling to see their apprentices achieve this important milestone.
“As a 100% PNG owned group, we are absolutely committed to helping the next generation achieve their dreams. This certification demonstrates their dedication to their craft and commitment to their future careers.”
Out of the five apprentices, Yvonne Mavirit is the only female service technician to finally sign up as an Apprentice, making her very proud as the only female in this male-dominated field.
“I want to say thank you to the Remington Group for giving me this opportunity as I am learning new things every day on the job through hands-on training, guidance from the senior service technicians and online training.”
Meanwhile Remington Group HR Manager Natasha Austin, expressed the company’s commitment in providing their apprentices with the best possible training and support, stating that this certification is a reflection of their commitment, and are looking forward to seeing their apprentices continue to grow and succeed in their careers.
The apprenticeship program is just one example of the many opportunities the Remington Group offers to young individuals in this country.
