How Apprentice Program works
Apprenticeship (4 years) and traineeship (2 years) programs combine paid work experience with Host Employer Honeywell, while working towards a nationally recognised qualification at trade school.
Honeywell apprentices and trainees will be employed through MEGT’s Recruitment and Management Services program which ensures a support structure is in place. MEGT will be on-hand to support apprentices and trainees throughout the program, both on the job and at trade school.
During the program, apprentices and trainees will spend their work week learning at a range of Honeywell commercial sites and completing their qualification during work hours.
Apprentices and trainees will be trained by industry-leading technicians in a range of Honeywell products. Honeywell technicians are responsible for ongoing service, maintenance and upgrades of automation systems and some mechanical areas such as chiller/plant room equipment. This provides apprentices and trainees the opportunity to work across a range of facilities including manufacturing plants, hospitals, hotels, casinos, correctional facilities, office buildings, museums, airports and train stations.
