TAFE Apprentices - Tropical Auto Group


Well, we've used CQ TAFE now for over 10 years. We use them because of the technical trainer Remo. Remo makes everything so easy for both myself and for our technicians. He comes in here weekly and keeps me up to date with everything that's going on with the guys and he makes it just so easy for the guys to be able to ease through their training plan each week.

The training I receive is very good. for our automotive apprenticeship. Now I am studying a dual trade auto electrics to further better my skills throughout the automotive industry.

At the moment we have 11 apprentices. It works really well. They get to go to TAFE, one day a week four throughout the year. If we happen to be busy or if they've got something on here at work TAFE, just make it so they can go on a block system or, or they schedule it so just works with us and then it works with the guys and it's less impact on our work as well and not have them away from the premises for too long. Remo also comes here onto our premises and help them with their training here. If they've got a, a, a hard vehicle or, or something that's a bit more detailed to do, he'll come here and help the apprentices with it and they also get to work on their own cars in their own time and he helps them out with that as well.

I love everything about my job. I love bettering my skills every single day, and it's a job that I'm taking me around the world. CQUni TAFE is the best place to do it. The training provided is excellent.
