Eleven apprentices have signed up at the Fiji National University (FNU) National Training Productivity Centre (NTPC) at the Aquaheat South Pacific Limited, Lami yesterday.

FNU Apprenticeship & National Trade Test manager, Alvin Lal acknowledged the two females that were part of the 11 apprentices that signed up.

Mr Lal said that so far they had received 28 females apprentices over the 240 that had been training with them, with their employers supporting apprenticeship training the skills capacity of Fiji’s workforce.

 

“We applaud the employers that have supported the apprentices training and scheme,” Mr Lal said.

Horizon Energy Group, Chief Operating Officer, Anusheel Chandra was very pleased that females were breaking the ceiling, making a difference by brining balance and a challenge for everyone.

“We believe in training our own employees and creating a pathway,” Mr Chandra said.

 

“If you look at business, it’s a generational business in New Zealand that is supported through a shareholder which is well-placed and part of our group which is very diverse and large.”

“Part of our group at Aquaheat South Pacific-Fiji operates under a single brand.”

“This is a multi-service, multi-trade business which believes in and strongly promotes quality as we’re the only company in our trade to 1,000 accreditation done for quality and 45,001 for health and safety,” he said.

 

The company is well-versed to deliver quality work and how to build resilience and to keep their staff safe.

They have a very corporate influence on the business.
