HVAC apprentice incentive program
HVAC and building management services provider, AE Smith has developed a 'National Training Achievement award' to recognise and reward the efforts of the company's apprentices.
Apprentices from around the country are encouraged to enter, with assessment focused on their academic performance over the past 12 months and potential for professional development within the company.
Victorian finalist Adam Ziino was awarded the national apprentice of the year, receiving a $1000 cash bonus plus a perpetual trophy.
"Apprentices are our future and it's important we reward them," comments David Seedsman, southern regional general manager, construction for AE Smith. "Our winner has displayed a fantastic attitude and aptitude for his work - and we're looking forward to developing Adam within the company, either in construction or management."
Ziino has worked with AE Smith for just under four years and spent the past nine months working on site at the Royal Women's Hospital on a major installation project. His performance has also been recognised by the wider industry, being named one of three finalists in Victoria's Air-conditioning & Mechanical Contractors Association's (AMCA) Training Achievement Awards to be announced next month.
The national training incentive award has become a key ingredient in attracting and retaining apprentices to AE Smith, but is also matched by additional training and career support extended by the company.
