It has been a remarkable journey for Robert Woodard who has recently completed his Certificate III in Heavy Vehicle Mechanical apprenticeship and has progressed to become a fully trained and qualified technician with Cummins South Pacific Newcastle. MEGT Australia has provided apprenticeship support services to Robert and the Cummins team.

Robert has a hearing impairment and has received fantastic support from the Cummins team to excel at his apprenticeship. His immaculate and creative apprentice diaries are being sought after to be used as examples for future apprentices in the team.

At the celebratory completion event, Cummins invited all those who have helped him in the journey. The guests included his TAFE teachers, his Employment support officer (Deaf Society) and AUSLAN interpreters. It was a proud moment for them as well to see him complete the apprenticeship successfully.

MEGT Australia applauds the challenge taken on by Cummins South Pacific to assist with the completion of Robert’s apprenticeship. We wish him a great future ahead.
