Another accolade for Ampcontrol’s rising star

Ampcontrol employee, Joshua Nott has been named Engineering Fabrication Trade Apprentice of the Year and Stan Rippon Perpetual Award winner at the 2017 Hunter Region Apprentice and Trainee Awards (HRATA).

Joshua is no stranger to accolades for his hard work. In the last 12 months, Josh won the Central Coast and Hunter TAFE Excellence Award for Fabrication, Ampcontrol’s Apprentice of the Year and a bronze medal in the 2016 National World Skills Challenge held in Melbourne.

Ampcontrol CEO and Managing Director Rod Henderson said, “It is wonderful to see Joshua’s hard work and dedication recognised by the training community. Having started my own career as an apprentice, and employed many apprentices over the course of my career, I can say that Joshua exemplifies the value of apprenticeships, becoming a valuable member of our fabrication team and an asset to Ampcontrol.”

Joshua is employed full time in Ampcontrol’s fabrication team at Tomago where he fabricates a range of customised specialist electrical enclosures, switchrooms, transformer tanks and skids.

Completing his Certificate III in Engineering Fabrication through TAFE NSW in 2016 Joshua has since completed a certificate IV in Engineering and is currently completing a Diploma in Engineering.  Josh now moves onto the NSW state awards.

Celebrating 50 years in 2018, Ampcontrol is proud to have been a part of the career journey of hundreds of Hunter locals like Joshua.
