Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician
Just as he was on the verge of making a career change from finance to studying for an electrical pre-apprenticeship, Jake Carter discovered his partner was expecting their first child.
Despite the drop in pay, coupled with the unknown job prospects that would eventuate, Jake made the ‘big and risky’ decision to forge ahead. With his new responsibilities increasing his motivation and determination to succeed, Jake completed his studies in three, rather than the customary four years.
Further accelerating his career while completing a Diploma of Electrical Project Management at Melbourne Polytechnic, Jake started his own business while sub-contracting to Design and Build Electrical. He credits Holmesglen’s Futuretech for laying the foundation for his success.
