A boilermakers journey

Mathew Brown, 1st year boilermaker

Hi, when did you start your apprenticeship? Hi! My name is Mathew and I started with 1300apprentice eight weeks ago with my host company, and I am learning to be a boiler maker.

What have you learnt so far? I have discovered there are so many aspects of this trade and different types of work tasks which I do. So far I have been wire wheeling (grinder); panning; cutting on the band saw; drilling; driving the truck with deliveries. Here I am using a Magdrill (Magnetic Drilling).

I’m happy every day.

What’s it like day to day? The team I work with are motivating me to learn more. I am developing new skills and understanding the processes of the basic tasks from the team.

I am waiting to commence TAFE midyear and I am looking forward to meeting other apprentices in the same trade.
