NECA Queensland Apprentice Awards
The NECA Queensland Apprentice Awards were held 1 August to recognise hard-working apprentices for their achievements in the electrical and communications industry.
James Tinslay, NECA National CEO, said that in recognising these aspiring Queensland apprentices this year, the industry has demonstrated an ongoing commitment to the future: “Our success as a profession is only as good as our members. It is vital for the sector in Queensland, a state with enviable vitality, to recognise and reward the next generation of contractors as they face learning in an ever-evolving, technologically challenging area. Recognition of our early achievers encourages them to stay in the industry and share our passion.
