When he finished high school in 2003, William wasn't sure what to do next and undertook a range of jobs, including in hospitality, fitness and running his own business . He finally found his mark when he built a timber deck—he loved working with timber and decided that was the career he wanted. As a mature aged apprentice, William enjoyed the ability to study at his own pace. “I enjoyed the blended model of online learning, on-site training and workplace assessment and found extreme value in the training days MIBT offered throughout my apprenticeship”.
