Excellent learning experience
Apprentice Mechanical Fitter (Former Employee) – Naval Base WA – 21 May 2017
The work ranged from 8 hour 9 day fortnight in my first three years to 12 hour day/night shift 2/2/6 roster as fourth year. I was given a chance to visit other sites to learn other skills outside the norm for my site, eg, 6 months in Pinjarra to work in repair workshop exclusively, including time on lathes, borers, and mills when required. Great pay, good mates, high safety culture, and wide range of skills learned, from hand tools and machining to in situ repair and laser alignment.
