Meet Our Engineering Apprentice Trainers
In the industry since: 1989
Has been at BDT since: 2007
Trade: Dual Trade Fitter/ Boilermaker
I became a trainer: because it was an opportunity to combine my trade and Education Degree. My late father was a Fitter and Turner and I am proud to follow in his footsteps. I have spent 13 Years in the Engineering industry and 13 years in Education as a VET Teacher and Trainer. It is very rewarding to see the penny drop with many apprentices, young and mature age.
Free time spent: with my 4 children untangling fishing lines and trying to make my girls watch rugby league.

I became a trainer: because I was interested in Blue Dog Training's training methods and enjoy the satisfaction of assisting an apprentice to work through their trade. It is rewarding to see an apprentice complete their trade and become a quality tradesman.
Free time spent: fishing, camping, hanging out with my three boys and going to the footy.
