Greg Brimner, welding and fabrication apprentice at Dales Marine Services, has successfully completed the first year of his modern apprenticeship based at the company’s Aberdeen facility. In parallel with his on-site company training, Dales Marine sponsor Greg through a four-year training programme at Tullos Training in Aberdeen. On completion of his training, Greg is aiming to be the latest in a long line of Dales Marine employees that have completed their modern apprenticeship with the company.
At Tullos Training, welding and fabrication apprenticeships include learning how to bend, form and join thick plate sheet metal and pipework, and learning the use of electrical and oxy fuel welding techniques. Greg has enjoyed his first-year apprenticeship and was recently awarded Tullos Training’s Best Fabrication and Welding Apprentice 2019.
Greg received the award from Jim Booth, training executive at Tullos Training and Michael Milne, managing director of Dales Marine Services received the company’s certificate award. Michael is delighted for Greg and congratulates him on his achievement.
The recent success demonstrates how Dales Marine Services value its highly skilled workforce and further demonstrates its desire to develop and maintain this strength through ongoing apprentice intake throughout 2019. The 2019 intake consists of engineers, fabricators and welders across the company’s operations at Aberdeen, Leith, and Greenock, plus a pipefitter and electrician further boosting the Greenock apprentice intake. Mark Massie, HR/QHSE manager, who has been managing the company’s 2019 apprentice recruitment programme says “Greg’s success has set the standard for the company’s newly appointed first-year apprentices".
