Seven savvy Aberdeen apprentices have successfully completed a Petrofac-run design and draughting course. The apprenticeship is registered by the Engineering Construction Industry Training Body (ECITB) and lasts for three to four years.
We have supported the ECITB apprenticeship for 8 years, and to date have helped 17 apprentices through the training.
During the course, we provided the apprentices with discipline-specific training, as well as assistance with core skills to help them in their day-to-day jobs. Throughout their training, they created portfolios of evidence including designs and drawings to support their learning.
After passing their final assessments, the apprentices were accredited with the ECITB diploma in Engineering Construction Design and Draughting, at Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) Level 6. Last week they attended a special ceremony arranged by ECITB to celebrate, and to receive their certificates.
Jack Douglas, Head of Design for our Offshore Projects and Operations business, said: “It’s great to see the apprentices complete the training, and in some cases, ahead of schedule. I have no doubt that what they’ve learned throughout the apprenticeship process will stand them in good stead as they continue to learn and develop in their careers.”
Congratulations to all the new graduates.
