Michael Perez came to Australia from the Philippines in 2008. Just one year later he had graduated his secondary studies in the top 50 of Northern Territory students, gaining exceptional grades in mathematics and science.

While outstanding grades were a fantastic result for Michael, the Alice Springs resident desired a more specific set of skills to anchor his future career and felt working with his hands would bring him a greater sense of achievement than a university pathway. To this end, in 2013 Michael commenced a Certificate II in Telecommunications as a traineeship hosted by Telstra, and employed by SKILLED Group which he completed in 2014.

With a diverse range of experience in carrier and privately owned telecommunications equipment, wireline, wideband, fibre, mobiles and radio transmission, Michael believes the traineeship has given him the skills he needs for a successful career in telecommunications.

Michael is a very enthusiastic advocate of traineeships, and exhibits his career as proof that on-the-job training combined with formal learning can lead to excellent outcomes for both the employer and the trainee.
