Meet Siva

"NZ welding School fast-tracked me into my engineering apprenticeship!"

"Before I went to the NZ Welding school I was an Industrial Abseiler working in factories and on towers often helping welders get to where they needed to be. I decided to go to NZ welding school so I could go back to Abseiling with some new skills and get more job opportunities. 

I learned a lot a skills at NZ Welding School, almost all of which I use every day. My favourite thing about the NZWS was the diversity and sheer amount of skills they teach in such a short time. 

One thing that really helped me while I was at the NZ Welding school was the diversity of things to do. Every time I got frustrated or stumped I could always stop and work on a different exciting project. Two days after graduating from NZ Welding school I started my apprenticeship in General Engineering for Machine part Welding doing anything from fixing a broken Exercycle to doing extensive maintenance on large heavy machinery."
