Key “on the job” achievements in their apprenticeship / traineeship

Can Crusher MJ Engineering

Can Crusher – MJ Engineering

Throughout his apprenticeship Micah liked to push the boundaries with new practices and handmade custom tools to help him complete jobs quicker and more efficiently while managing time restrictions and requirements for production.  He completed further training with Bradken in Foundry Processes and CAD computer design and was given a project to come up with the design for a strong handle for use on heavy gauges and other items.  He was responsible for doing the CAD design, modelling, making of the pattern and also the final product manufacture.  These items are currently being utilised in Bradken sites in China and around Australia due to the ergonomic design, general usability and light weight properties.  This was a huge achievement on Micah’s behalf and served to highlight his technical and practical knowledge and skill set.

A high proficiency in their field of study and work

Showing a high level of initiative Micah completed his Apprenticeship TAFE component at the 2.5 year mark.  At his host, Bradken, Micah has become recognised as the ‘go to person’ for more complex and intricate work to be carried out.  He has demonstrated an ongoing commitment by engaging in further training which incorporates CAD design and more practical foundry training by working with other business units within the company.  Micah hopes to acquire new skills with experience and would like build on these existing qualities in order to be a well-respected leader at Bradken and the local community in the future.

A focus on becoming successful in their work and personal life

Micah has shown throughout his apprenticeship the desire and motivation to continually improve his skills by keeping up to date with new techniques and sharing them with other staff.  He continually shows initiative to improve the processes at Bradken and by enrolling in an IT / Engineering degree post his completion at TAFE demonstrates his desire to continue learning.

Bradken recognised these qualities in Micah and have moved him into other areas of the business so they can benefit from his innovative thinking and work practice, in addition to providing Micah with a variety of experiences.  Both Ai Group ATC and his host see him for the very valuable asset he is, both professionally and personally.
