Apprentice To Engineer: A Day in the Life of our Service TeamMarch 1, 2018
At The Hamilton Ross Group we are proud to acknowledge the hard work of our Apprentice Engineers, who are shaping their future and your field!
With several bright sparks in our team, we decided to shine a light on our Apprentices and give you an insight into our training programme.
Danny Cook of Reekie Cupar is the Group’s newest recruit. Danny’s role of Workshop Assistant allows him to get a flavour for a career in engineering, “A wide range of machines come into the Workshop so I learn something new every day,” Danny exclaims.
Down the road at Ross of Lanark, Apprentice Greig Robert Lambie is working under the tutelage of several Technicians. Having grown up on a farm, Greig decided to apply his practical knowledge and joined the team in July, “At the moment, I’m taking the opportunity to learn all I can from my colleagues.”
All our apprentices undertake LANTRA approved courses at college. Andrew Falls of Hamilton Brothers Tarbolton is one year into his Apprenticeship and his talent has already been recognised with Barony College awarding him the ‘Dealer Apprentice of the Year Award’ for 2016. “I threw myself into the Apprenticeship,” Andrew smiles, “Now I can enjoy the freedom of completing certain tasks unaided.”
When Andrew completes his apprenticeship he will join graduates Stephen Moore and Graeme Ramsay. Stephen started his career valeting tractors at Hamilton Brothers Bishopton. Now, he is a fully qualified Field Service Engineer. Stephen recommends apprentices listen to their colleagues, “I found the help from Senior Engineers to be invaluable.”
Graeme is now a Senior Engineer and offers advice to new starts. “It takes time to feel confident when it comes to diagnostics,” Graeme acknowledges, “However, the first time I was able to solve a problem myself was very rewarding.”
