Master Electricians Apprentice Challenge 2019 - Wellington
What it is:
The Master Electricians Apprentice Challenge is an annual competition for all apprentices in the electrical industry with less than 45months on-job training. Competitors are put through a series of technical challenges that test their ability to perform in situations they are likely to face as qualified electricians. The competition is split into two divisions; Commercial/Residential and Industrial.
What it involves:
The competition hosts 10 regional preliminary competitions, where all electrical apprentices are welcome to come along and compete. Following the preliminary competitions, the 5 top performing apprentices from each division (Commercial/Residential and Industrial) will be invited to compete at the final competition in Nelson at our National Conference in October – All expenses paid.
Preliminary competition details:
The preliminary competitions consist of roughly a full day of testing in each region. A detailed run sheet of the day and a brief of what apprentices will be tested on will be sent to each competitor two weeks prior to each preliminary competition. The division winners of each preliminary competition will walk away $200 cash. There will also be giveaways and free lunch for everyone who competes.
